Who should NOT buy it

The Puma Cali Platform is not for users who prefer a flexible outsole. Because of its thick rubber sole, this sneaker is deemed to be less flexible than kicks with thinner soles. As an alternative, you may check some popular vulcanized sneakers, such as Vans Old Skool or Nike Blazer Low

Puma Cali Sport: Fusing futuristic and retro style

Puma recently released sneakers with their Futro approach that combines the future with their retro silhouettes. Part of the sneakers produced with the Futro approach is the Puma Cali collection, with the Puma Cali released in 2018 as a low-top tennis-inspired silhouette.

Drawing inspiration from its base model, the Puma Cali, the Puma Cali Sport has a similar full leather upper with suede overlays in a classic tennis silhouette. Stitching details give subtle detailing to the shoe and add to its durability. Perforations on the toe box make it breathable, keeping the foot cool and dry.

Authentic laidback edgy street look

Decked out with a platform sole, it brings an edgy street style and sporty vibe. Flat laces complement the upper, and rubber bumpers on the toe and heel area highlight the sole. It is kept comfortable with a padded footbed, tongue, and collar that cushions every stride. Metallic Puma branding appears on the lateral side, metallic Puma cat on the heel, and the iconic Puma formstrip on each side.
