Puma Astro Cup Leather History

Puma was launched in 1948 by Rudolf Dassler in Herzogenaurach, Germany. He was the brother of Adidas founder Adi Dassler, with whom he had a bitter rivalry that lasted throughout both of their lives. Initially named Ruda, the company was renamed into Puma after the large American wild cat.

The company’s earliest logo was a square and an animal jumping through the letter “D” for Dassler. Today, Puma’s Leaping Cat logo is highly recognizable around the world, signifying quality and performance.

From the start, Puma was recognized as an innovative brand that combined retro designs with modern technologies. Its styles were simple, functional, and practical, retaining a classic appeal that makes them trendy across many years. For its line of lifestyle Puma sneakers, the brand is known for taking inspiration from various sports.

Among the brand’s modern kicks are the Puma Astro Cup Leather trainers. They are the follow-up to the popular Astro Cup Suede, updating the silhouette with new materials and a sleeker profile. Additionally, the shoe features rubber tooling for an optimal grip, while at the same time offering visual appeal with its rich textures.

This model is one of Puma’s football-inspired sneakers. It features a soft leather upper that showcases a T-toe design, achieving a timeless flair. The simple and classic vibe makes the shoe a neat yet dressy football trainer that can be worn across many lifestyle activities. With their sporty yet subtle style, the Puma men's Astro Cup Leather sneakers are as versatile as they are minimalistic.
