Puma Mostro Perf Leather History
Puma originally unveiled the original Mostro in 2002 as a trainer. However, the Jumping Cat-logo company took it to a different level by virtue of its promotional ad. The catchy “walks the line between sport and style” was only part of the reason why Puma sold over 300,000 pairs in only its first year of release. These numbers spiked through the next couple of years as the sneaker found its way in the foot of several celebrities.
Puma has seen a rise in demand of the Mostro not only for its style, but also for its advanced performance-oriented design. The hook and loop system was a revolutionary concept that captured the imagination of many. It is now easily one of Puma’s most sought-after low-top silhouettes.
In 2017, Puma reworked the Mostro line to cater to the current style without losing its extremely popular beginnings. Part of this change is the introduction of variations that include the Perforated Leather upper of the Mostro.
- The Slip On style is secured by a hook and loop closure.
- The upper is 100% leather for premium look and durability.
- The usual Puma formstrip and Cat trademarks are found on this sneaker.
- It appeared in the movie “The Island,” which is also one of the reasons why the shoe became very popular when it was just recently introduced to the public.
