The suede hit the scene in 1968 and has been changing the game ever since. While many sneakers have come and gone since then - leaving footprints of varying sizes - it's difficult to argue any shoe having as much of a deep-rooted impact on society and culture as the suede. From Tommie Smith’s protest on the victory stand during the 1968 Olympic games to b-boy crews in NYC adopting the shoe in the 1980s. It’s been worn by the icons of every generation - and it’s stayed classic through it all. The Puma suede is an icon for everyone. With the suede VTG, puma is keeping the model as close as possible to its original predecessors, including a shorter vamp, no suede logo on the quarter and raw edge tongue construction. This pack features a full premium velvety suede upper.
