The Puma Smash Cat L is available in men’s and women’s sizing. It is even available in kid’s sizing. The ankle can move without any restriction because of the shoe’s low-top construction. It has a lace-up fastening system that provides an adjustable and secure fit. 

As one of the versions of the Puma Smash, the Smash Cat L also dons the iconic tennis-shoe silhouette. Composed of a soft leather upper, it differs from the classic by having the Cat logo on the side instead of the usual Puma signature Formstrip. The Cat logo still makes appearances on the tongue and heel part, making it more decorative and identifiable.

Styling these sneakers will not be hard as it is versatile. Ideally, pairing them with casual clothes can instantly make it sporty. Those who are more adventurous can match it with dressier clothes. The possibilities are endless.

Although there are already different variations for the Puma Smash series, the Smash Cat L is unique on its own. It has a synthetic leather upper with the Puma Cat logo at the tongue and heel part of the shoe as well as the lateral and medial sides. A non-marking rubber composes its outsole for durability and added traction.

The Smash Cat L is one of the versions of Puma’s infamous Smash collection. During the advent of basketball, Puma decided to go to the other direction and release a classic-silhouetted tennis shoe. Although greatly inspired by Adidas’ Stan Smith, Puma deviated from the usual marketing strategies of getting famous endorsers and rely on the technologies of the shoe alone.

After just one year, Puma released another version, an all suede number under the Smash series. Today, there are several versions of the Puma Smash. One of which is the Smash Cat L, which carries the same silhouette, but a slightly different designed upper.

  • The Puma Smash Cat L has lace-up details to allow a snugger fit.
  • For additional comfort, Puma incorporated a cushioned midsole and padded tongue and collar.
  • Its low-top silhouette allows more movement and freedom.
  • The “L” on the shoe name means “Leather.”
