Back in 1968, the city scene was packed with hot chicks in hot pants and tall boys in basketball shorts—that was when PUMA first lit a fire under culture’s keister with the Suede silhouette. The industry rebel that said ‘nay’ to ordinary leather, the Suede was a warm-up shoe made infamous by athletic greats such as basketball’s Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier and the track’s Tommie Smith. It hit new levels of fame during the 80s dawn of b-boys and hip hop beats, taking over New York City blocks and often spotted in a much sought-after blue-white color combo. To this day, it remains PUMA’s most epic icon of sport-inspired style with its smooth suede and streetwise swagger.
