Puma El Rey Fun History

The Puma El Rey Fun is among the latest releases that make use of the El Rey silhouette. The original model was released in the first decade of the 21st century, and it adopted a California-cool design. It was primarily aimed at those who want to relax and enjoy a leisurely pace.

As such, it had comfort as one of its most important offers. This comfort was ensured through its use of a perforated leather on the upper.

The Puma El Rey Fun carries that comfort and attitude over to the present. The current model is made of synthetic leather with decorative micro perforations. It easily lends itself to those who want to enjoy the sunshine in their most laid-back states.
