The Puma Fierce Quilted is available only for the ladies. It sports a slip-on construction to achieve its easy-to-wear goodness. The breathable mesh on the upper provides just the right amount of snugness.
During its release, a lot of wearers thought that the Puma Fierce looked quite familiar. Indeed, the original shoe and the variants that came after it all resemble Rihanna’s Fenty trainer so much.
The Puma Fierce Quilted retains the Fenty’s now ubiquitous form. As such, it easily goes well with almost any outfit. Its largely monochromatic appearance also adds to its versatility. Indeed, this shoe is for every woman on the go.
Its neat and straightforward silhouette is this shoe’s most impressive feature. Inspired by the appearance of Rihanna’s Fenty trainer, this shoe just gives every woman the active sophistication that defines her.
When the Puma Fierce was released on the 1st of April 2016, the buzz that it generated was not only about how good it was, but also about how its endorser Kylie Jenner would come to terms with the displeasure of her brother-in-law Kanye West, who by the way designs and promotes Adidas shoes, toward her Puma endorsement. Kanye even tweeted about how Puma’s acts of signing his wife’s sister may “divide the family.”
Whatever issue they had, they must have resolved it behind the curtains because both the release and Kylie’s online endorsements of the shoe pushed through as planned. A commercial featuring her was even released.
Her endorsement proved to be so successful that the shoe was soon released in several Puma Fierce variants, from ones made of EvoKnit to items made of nubuck leather. And then there is this, the Puma Fierce Quilted, which is made of breathable textile that features intricate stitching patterns.
- The shoe features caging overlays that give it structure and its supportive qualities.
- Because this is intended not only as a fashion statement but also as a training partner, the Puma Fierce Quilted has an exaggeratedly thick heel to provide movement stability.
- The Puma Cat is on the lateral side of the shoe.
- The Puma Fierce Quilted has pull tabs attached to the heel and tongue so that it’s going to be easy slipping in and out of it.
- The outsole is made of rubber to provide better grip on almost every surface.
