In 1968, the PUMA Suede built its rep among basketball circles and hip hop scenes in the U-S-of-A. It eventually cleared its passport papers and began to jet-set round the world, stealing over sidewalks from Timbuktu to Tokyo.
The latest version is no exception to the rules of "classic" and "cool." The Made in Japan Suede Classic takes color and design cues specifically from the 1980s Suedes. It adopts a narrower last and shorter toe box for a sharp-sleek-sophisticated look. The thicker suede is coupled with a reduced lining for a premium vintage feel.
And the craftsmanship?
It's Japan's finest, with optimum attention to detail. This Suede Classic was made in PUMA's Japanese factory, and Japanese cultural values sit smack in the middle of its sole: pride, authenticity, and heritage. Making it a shoe that stands up to its Suede rep-and stands apart from all the rest.
