Being one of the pioneers in sports brands, Puma remains to prove that it can withstand the test of the ever-changing market. Founded in 1924 by Rudolf Dassler, Puma proved its character as a great sportswear and casual wear brand in apparel, accessories, and footwear.
Showing that they are as feisty as the athletes that they are supporting, Puma released a tennis shoe during the advent of basketball. This line had a suited name, Smash, and greatly inspired by the tennis shoe line of its rival, the Adidas’ Stan Smith. Despite being similar, the brand relied solely on the shoes’ technology rather than using the usual marketing strategies for its success.
A year after the release of the first series, another one launched. The sneaker came in a suede upper, standing out from the usual canvas and leather shoes.
Since then, the iconic shoe birthed different colorways and variations, the Puma Smash Leather being one of them.
- For a more customizable fit, it is designed with a lace-up vamp.
- Puma subtly injects its logo at the heel and tongue part of the shoe.
