Puma Blaze Cage Glove History
The Puma Blaze Cage Glove is one of Puma’s most recent shoe models. Its roots lead back to a classic Puma shoe popular during the ‘90s, the Puma Blaze of Glory or otherwise known as the B.O.G. Although a top favorite among other famous Puma silhouettes, the Puma B.O.G. stood out even without the brand's signature Formstrip brandings on the sides.
The original Puma Blaze of Glory shoe featured a mesh upper with sufficient overlays for the much-needed support, minimal brandings for a clean look, and a unique lacing system that nonetheless allowed a secure yet adjustable fit. It made an official comeback in 2007, which paved the way for countless new Blaze of Glory variations, material and design upgrades, and collaborations. One of those new models that the iconic B.O.G. resulted to is the Puma Blaze Cage Glove.
The Puma Blaze Cage Glove released in two colorways named as the “Black and Whisper White” and the “Marshmallow and Whisper White.”
- Unlike most Puma shoes, the Puma Blaze Cage Glove lacks the brand’s signature Formstrips on the side panels.
- Puma branding is very minimal and can only be seen on the tongue and heel.
- The collar and tongue are both cushioned for enhanced in-shoe comfort.
- Also featured are rounded laces with tonal aglets.
