Good to know
Puma’s Astro Kick is a unisex design, which is available in men’s sizes. Women who want to get a pair are advised to go one and a half sizes down from their usual sizing. In short, a women’s 7 is 5.5 in men’s unisex sizing.
The shoe’s low-top profile provides the ankles a freer range of motion while the tongue, collar, and footbed are well-cushioned to support every step.
So tread the streets with the soccer-inspired Puma Astro Kick. This retro-looking pair exudes a classic, sporty vibe that will step up your outfit game. The Astro Kick goes well with any casual wear—namely, chino shorts, skinny ripped jeans, topped with a print tee, a hoodie, or a jacket. You can also go sporty and pair the Astro Kick with sweatpants and joggers.
Its upper is built with quilted suede and breathable mesh, fastened by a traditional lace-up closure. Along each sidewall runs the bold Formstrip, with the cat logo placed on the heels, and Puma labels embossed on the tongue, vamp, and midsole. Moreover, its rounded toe box showcases distinctly modern stitching. All this sits atop a durable rubber sole via a cupsole construction.
During their first year, Puma introduced their first shoe, named the Atom, a high-top soccer shoe built like a small cleat. It was the shoe with which West Germany scored their first postwar goal in a match against Switzerland in 1950. Two years later, the Super Atom followed, which was the first soccer cleat to have six removable screw-in studs. Puma pushed forward after a year and released an enhanced successor to the already successful Atoms, the Puma Brasil.
Bearing the iconic Formstrip, all these shoes have indelibly marked their heritage in soccer. However, it was in 1968, when Puma launched what would be their most important pair, the Puma King. It was worn by the legendary Brazilian Pelé and other great soccer players, such as Diego Maradona, who made the Goal of the Century.
Such is the classic heritage of the Puma Astro Kick, a cup-sole trainer with the styling of the brand's legendary soccer shoes.
- The shoe is provided with a SoftFoam sock liner for added comfort.
