Just ask anyone who has ever rocked a pair of PUMA Suedes. The iconic sneakers made their debut in 1970 when one of the greats of the basketball world endorsed the low-profile shoe and made it his own. Available in a variety of colors and made with smooth, touchable suede, they were instant favorites — both on and off the basketball court. Today, kids everywhere love them just as much as they did back in their heyday.
That Classic Look
It’s that classic appeal that earns all the raves. The Suede is an instant legend, instantly recognizable for its thick outsole and clean lines. The details, of course, are where the shoe really shines. It’s available in every conceivable color of the rainbow. For the kids who can’t resist rainbow hues, you’ll find it all: radiant reds, sunshine yellows, and bold purples, for starters. There are even colorblocked styles for the kids who can’t pick just one shade. On the flip side, it’s easy to rock a neutral Suede, too, thanks to sleek black and white styles.
These shoes are unabashedly adventurous, making them perfect for skateboarders, puddle jumpers, and everyone in between. They’re also totally versatile, and easy to wear with everything from everyday jeans and t-shirts to sporty PUMA clothing. These sneakers have an innate knack for completing any look perfectly.
The PUMA Creed
PUMA definitely “gets it.” Suede offers everything a kid could possibly want from a shoe — and everything parents hope to find, too. There’s resilience, for a start, which is key for those little ones who can’t sit still and who are constantly exploring and getting into all kinds of mischief. They aren’t about to stop, so they need shoes that keep them one step ahead at all times.
They’re downright cool, too, much like their PUMA RS-X siblings. The Suede was influential during its formative years, inspiring more than just athletes to add something new and unexpected to their wardrobes. The sneaker also made a place for itself in hip-hop circles, appealed to surfers, and eventually became a mainstay for its easy-wear style. The fact that it’s still in the game means one thing: the Suede is definitely here to stay.
