Its upper comprised of synthetic leather, overlaid with suede and leather, along with subtle stitching details. A bold Formstrip runs along the sidewall, complemented by a T-toe vamp design, flashing an all-out Puma look on feet. All this sits atop a white durable rubber sole, with a textured finish.
In a soccer match against Switzerland in 1950, West Germany made their first postwar goal with the Puma Atom kicking the way. The Atom cleat was the Puma’s first model. In the next three years, Puma introduced the Super Atom, the first ever soccer cleat to feature removable screw-in studs, and the Brasil, the successor of the Atoms.
Puma have emerged as a leading soccer sneaker brand worldwide. Their Formstrip became a respectable symbol. In 1968, the Puma King—perhaps the brand’s most storied pair—launched. Soccer legends such as Pele and Diego Maradona wore the King, or the Gods’ shoe, as it was later dubbed. Puma took inspiration from this rich soccer heritage and produced a series of vintage soccer-inspired shoes emerged. Among them is the Astro Cup SL, which enriches this collection.
- Puma branding is detailed in the sidewall, tongue, insole, and heel tab, and also embossed on the sole.
