Originally designed as a football training shoe in the 1980s, it eventually became a terrace favourite and still has a ‘old school’ look that makes it very desirable today.
The reissue is in a choice of blue or black suede for the upper, with a contrasting leather overlay sitting to the side, as leather tongue, a gum sole and gold branding.
The performance heritage of the German sportswear brands like PUMA was always going to appeal to the new wave of electro loving break dancers. The tracksuits were super comfy and functional for dancing in and the trainers were lightweight and flexible enough to nail moves like the windmill in. Classic PUMA vamp trainer styles from the 70s and the 80s are just simply some of the best trainer styles out there. The PUMA vintage retro look is timeless regardless of current trainer trends and celebrity endorsement. The B-Boys and the original casuals paved the way for a new outlook for the brand, which now focused on the streets and the dressers as oppose to the traditional running tracks.
