The shoe provides adequate breathability thanks to its full grain leather upper while its dual hook-and-loop straps with lace-up enclosure guarantee a lockdown fit.
The high-top Puma Sky II Hi Colorblocked Leather is available in US men’s sizes from 7 to 13. It runs true to size but some advised that it runs smaller than the standard size. They suggested adding a size to remedy this issue.
The Puma Sky II Hi Colorblocked Leather showcases a retro vibe due to its high-top construction and Velcro straps which some describes as “very 80s.” Most of its color variants are essentially monochromatic, which makes it easier to pair with a multitude of casual outfits. From casual morning strolls to late night dates, the Puma Sky II Hi Colorblocked Leather got it covered.
Its impressive ankle support is due to the hook-and-loop straps, similar to other Sky II models. The rubber outsole has varying patterns which provide grip on various surfaces.
Rudolf Dassler established the athletic brand Puma in 1948. He and his brother started the massively successful footwear company Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory. After decades of partnership, the brother severed ties with each other, which pushed Rudolf to create his own shoe brand. Rudolf originally named his company Ruda, but he then changed it to Puma later.
Like Adidas, Puma initially invested its resources in producing soccer cleats, which gained immediate popularity with many of the top soccer teams in the world. As the decades go along, the brand established its relevance in the sneaker industry when it expanded its footwear categories. It started offering shoes for running, basketball, training, and later, lifestyle sneakers.
One of the classic sneakers of the brand is the Puma Sky Hi FG, which was introduced in 1980 as basketball footwear. While the shoe is not necessarily a flop, it didn't gain much traction with the fans because of the more popular basketball kicks from other brands. Thanks to its construction and style, it transitioned into a casual lifestyle category during the early 90s.
Fast-forward to today, the Puma Sky II Hi Colorblocked Leather is one of the recent additions to the collection. It exhibited the original model’s high-top slim profile but equipped with the latest innovations in sneaker tech. Since its release in 2015, the company has released four color schemes for this shoe.
- The color schemes available for this shoe are as follows: Puma Black, Lapis Blue, Toreador, and Inca Gold.
