Bottom line

Although relatively a new sneaker model, the Puma Muse has already proven that it is worthy of a bold upgrade through the Puma Muse Cut-Out. The Muse Cut-Out's additional features not only give the Muse added oomph, but they also transform the minimal-looking shoe into an edgy yet feminine new Puma sneaker.

Aside from its outstanding comfort, many reviewers love its stylish look and beautiful colors. One downside, however, is that it fits narrow than usual.

The Puma Muse Cut-Out is made for women. Donning a mid-cleat sneaker design, this kick is accompanied with an upper made of neoprene material that hugs the foot for a snug fit and superb comfort. Support is there as well, particularly with an embossed leather cage with a metallic TPU piece. On the heel is a leather pull tab for easy wearing since the shoe boasts a slip-on construction.

This update to the Puma Muse sneakers offers a futuristic and bold look for the ladies. It is built with a split sole, a feature that is highly inspired by dance shoes, and a buckle strap type of closure to secure the foot. The lateral side cut-out is the focal design accent that makes the shoe one-of-a-kind and extra stylish.

Puma updated its Muse sneakers with a unique, new look through the Puma Muse Cut-Out model. It flaunts a feminine aesthetic inspired by dance shoes with fashionable design details that turn heads anywhere – the split rubber outsole, open cut accents in the laterals, and the buckle closure across the front. Such additional complex features collectively result to a futuristic and stylish silhouette fit for street style and an active lifestyle.

German footwear brand Puma launched the Puma Muse shoes on January 18th, 2018 as part of the Puma Women’s “Do You” campaign, which aims to inspire women all over the world with empowerment and confidence. The release was led by Puma brand ambassador, actress, and supermodel Cara Delevingne and is included in the Puma’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection.  

The Puma Muse features a slip-on sock construction, with its upper accented by elastic cross-over straps that extend to the heel. Maintaining the shoe's clean look are minimal brandings that can only be seen on the tongue (Puma Cat logo) and heel strap (embroidered "PUMA" text). The Puma Muse debuted in a feminine “Do You” color palette.

Puma released an updated version of its Muse silhouette, the mid-top Puma Muse Cut-Out, on May 19, 2018, also a continuation of the #DOYOU campaign. Launched as part of the brand’s FW18 women’s range, the new sneaker model offers a bold and fierce aesthetic comprising a slip-on construction secured by a unique buckle strap closure, a dual split rubber outsole, and lateral side cut-outs. Cara Delevingne, as a brand ambassador for Puma Women, introduced the Muse Cut-Out, particularly the neon yellow and black "Sulphur Spring" colorway. Other colorways were released afterward, including the "Plat Blue" and "Cement."

  • The Puma Muse Cut-Out features an IMEVA foam midsole that gives wearers a lightweight and comfortable feel.
  • The Puma logo is placed on the buckle strap, while the Puma Cat logo is at the tongue and heel tab.
