The Puma Match 74 UPC is a low-top casual sneaker with a traditional lace closure that can be adjusted depending on the wearer's preference. The tongue features an extra eyelet, in which the shoelaces could loop through to secure it. This shoe is available in men's sizes, which range from size 7 to 13 in D Standard width.
A low-top sneaker with a leather upper, the Puma Match 74 UTC gives out a sporty look similar to the original Match shoes. It is ideal for every day, casual use as it looks great when worn with jeans, pants, or even shorts.
One notable feature of the Puma Match 74 UPC is the Puma Formstrip presented in the form of perforations, which functions not only as part of the design but also for extra foot ventilation. Another notable feature is the use of suede paneling on the sides and the heel tab.
The Puma Match was the brand's first ever professional tennis shoe that initially released in 1974. One of the few Europe-made shoes, it was known to be of superior quality. It also took part in the sports events history for being worn by several best athletes in the past.
When the Jumping Cat brand re-launched some of the classic Puma tennis shoes, the Match has been included and subsequently renamed as the Puma Match 74. From then on, it also released in various iterations which incorporate design and material upgrades.
The Puma Match 74 UPC is one of these modern iterations. It still carries on the silhouette of the original Match, in an all-leather upper with lateral reinforcements in suede material for the needed support and added durability. It also features the iconic Formstrip on the lateral sides, but in the form of perforations to even function for ventilation. The Puma Match branding is visible on the lateral sides as well along with the Puma logos on both the tongue and the heel.
- Puma brandings are visible on the side panels, the tongue, and the heel.
- The collar and the tongue are both padded for more comfortable feel around the ankle.
- Also featured is the rubber outsole for durability and optimized grip.
