The women-exclusive Puma California Scratch sneaker with its throwback design has regular flat laces that fit narrow to medium width wearers. The regular flat shoe lacing secures the foot with a padded tongue and collar with mesh materials. It comes in women’s US size 5.5 to 11.

A summer-ready design of the classic Puma California, the women’s Puma California Scratch sneaker has a breathable upper and reliable arch support for all-day wear. Style them up with shorts, pants, skirts, and other summer-ready outfits to get that perfect California girl aura from the 1980s.

Wear these affordable Puma sneakers with pastel colored tops, white and light-colored clothing for that ready to hit the beach look any time of the day. The Puma California Scratch women’s shoes are offered in two colorways that include the Puma White/Fig Ash and the Smoked Pearl/White/Black options.

The Puma California Scratch women’s shoes are designed with an embossed synthetic leather toe box with perforations and mesh upper for breathability. The vintage appeal is retained with the signature Formstrip detail in a leather pattern that sits on top of an EVA midsole while interiors come with external arch support for premium comfort.

Puma is a leading footwear manufacturer with its main headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany. Founded by Rudolf Dassler in 1948, the company has produced iconic silhouettes that have become iconic like the Puma Suede and the Puma Basket. Aside from producing classic footwear, the German footwear company has been providing shoes for soccer, running, basketball, and motorsports. The German brand has also designed shoes for the fitness market and the recent sportstyle or lifestyle sneakers which are geared for casual wear.

The German brand has been aggressively upgrading its lifestyle sneaker portfolio with the longtime partnership with music superstar Rihanna as creative director of the Puma Fenty line that started in 2014. The brand also partnered with musician and rapper Jay-Z who is now the creative director of the newly revived Puma Basketball line in 2018.

The Puma California is another classic design from the sneaker manufacturer. It was an original design that was introduced in 1983. The vintage shoe was made even more famous when it was worn by grand slam tennis champion Guillermo Vilas. The California silhouette has been the inspiration behind the creation of two other tennis models endorsed by the tennis player: the Puma G. Vilas and the Puma GV Special.

Through the years, the Puma California has shifted its audience from tennis players into the street-style appreciative crowd. The brand also named the design Puma California after the sunny state of California. To re-introduce the Puma California shoes to the younger crowd, the brand tapped singer and actress Selena Gomez to endorse the silhouette by posing with the 1980s-inspired sneaker in Puma tracksuit.

The Puma California Scratch sneaker features a clean mesh and synthetic leather upper with perforations in the toe box for ventilation. The mesh sneakers are an excellent choice for many wearers wanting a breathable sneaker, especially during the summer months. Other updated features include a thick EVA midsole with external arch support for those with arch problems. The shoe is also suitable for extended wear because of the improved arch support.

  • Puma Formstrip on the side panels is in leather.
  • Padded collar and tongue to add protection and comfort for the ankle.
  • Rubber outer sole for durability.
  • Perforations at the toe box improve ventilation.
  • Puma branding called out on the side and woven Puma branding at tongue.
