A sneaker that delivers a balanced combination of traditional and sporty modern appeal, the Puma California East LA offers a timeless style. The low-top shoe exhibits a vintage appearance that also blends in effortlessly with the trend, enabling the wearer to stay in style any time of the day.

The Puma California East LA conveys flexibility that brings out its ability to function well as a lifestyle sneaker that fits for various occasions. It also complements a wide variety of outfit combinations, giving the wearer freedom to express themselves through their style.

The colorway of this tennis-inspired kick that displays its distinctive designs across its heel part serves as the prime accent of the whole design of the Puma California East LA. Its classic look that it took from its originator delivers an attractive old-school vibe that is complemented well with the signature Puma formstrips.

Brothers, Adolf and Rudolf Dassler, established the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory in the year 1924 in Herzogenaurach, Germany which was their hometown. The business had a very humble beginning as it started out just right in their mother’s laundry room. The brothers even had to pedal a stationary bike for their machinery to operate when their power source went out.

Success then came for the brothers, but unfortunately, they had a falling out and went on for separate ways for good in the year 1948. Rudolf, or much known as Rudi, left the company and started his own which he called and we all now know as “Puma.” His brother also established his own business, Adidas, and the two became rivals that went on for years.

The Puma Atom brought the Puma brand its early success which was also its first soccer cleat. In 1950, the silhouette was worn by the members of the West Germany National Team. The Jumping Cat logo has also been an iconic emblem for the brand, and as the years went by, Puma has become one of the leading brands in the sports industry.

Not only did the brand stayed focused on offering quality and high-performance sports footwear, apparel, and accessories, it has also jumped into the lifestyle category. Among the casual footwear the brand offers is the Puma California which was introduced in the tennis courts in the year 1983. Argentinian Grand Slam Champion, Guillermo Vilas, wore the Puma California which gave the sneaker popularity.

From the tennis courts, the low-top shoe has found a place in the streets as it became one of the brand’s classics that deliver a laid-back style. The silhouette continues to prove its timeless appeal as with its modern updates that suit well for both men and women.

  • The Puma California tag is displayed on the sides of the Puma California East LA.
