The Puma Match Lo Patent Snake is one of the latest iterations of that Puma classic, the Match. The original silhouette came out in 1974 as part of the Puma’s tennis collection. It was predominantly white with a clean and slim design and was Puma’s answer to Adidas’ Stan Smith. It also had a leather upper and lateral overlays for extra reinforcement and stability—to prevent slipping on the court. Perforated Formstrips for breathability complete the look.

The Match is considered as one of the best Puma shoes of all time. The classic silhouette has remained as popular now as it was more than four decades ago. So much so that the model has seen several versions launched since its original release.

The Puma Match Lo keeps much of the details of the beloved silhouette but updates it with a patent leather finish and faux snakeskin detailing.

  • The Puma Match Lo Patent Snake features the Puma cat logo at the heel, the Puma label at the tongue, and the Match callout at the lateral side.
