Puma Suede Americana History

The Puma Suede is the brand’s most bestselling silhouette. The Puma Suede design was first worn by Tommie Smith in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City where he won a gold medal at the 200-meter race.

The low-top design was also made famous by NBA player Walt “Clyde” Frazier who first sported the shoe in one of his games. The sneaker was modified a bit to Frazier’s specifications and was later on called as the Puma Clyde.

After the design’s popularity as a basketball trainer slowly diminished, the shoe transitioned as a classic sneaker favorite of those in the hip-hop and rock circles in the 1980s to the 1990s. The design continued to be released by the German company because of its classic good looks and heritage appeal as the company began tweaking the footwear to include new materials, design, and colorways.

The Puma Suede Americana was released on June 24, 2016, just in time for the Fourth of July Independence Day celebrations. The design incorporates an American patriotic theme with a Stars and Stripes motif with colors of white, blue, red, and grey comprising the modern iteration.
