The low-top Puma Suede Bow Block displays the classic profile of the suede enhanced with eye-catching details. The oversized velvet bow on its heel adds distinct style that will elevate one's usual attire. Meanwhile, the color block midsole intensifies its striking appeal making it stand out in the casual street fashion.

To style this, many opt to match this kick up with skinnies or leggings topped with oversized hoodies or plain tees. Also, dresses or mini skirts also work well with this iteration to emphasize the eye-catching bob on its heel.

The extra large velvet bow on the heel of the women's Puma Suede Bow Block sneakers adds a remarkable feature that makes this sneaker stand out in the sea of casual sneakers. This element gives elegant appeal without altering the classic comfort and durability of the Puma Suede silhouette.

Another striking detail is the stylish color-blocked midsole that highlights this pair's distinctness apt for the modern look. The texturized rubber midsole contrasts the suede upper to further draw attention to the suede upper and the oversized bow details.

The Puma Suede was unveiled in the 60s as a basketball warm-up kick. It gained popularity when basketball superstar Walter 'Clyde' Frazier was seen sporting this kick on one of his pre-game exhibitions. Frazier requested for a wider version of the Puma Suede which eventually conceived the Puma Clyde iteration.

In the era when the Puma Suede was born, the leather footwear reigned the market. The suede was never in the lists of sought-after kicks, but everything changed when Frazier started sporting this sneaker. The laidback image of Frazier further intensified the curiosity and the popularity of the Puma Clyde in the streets and easily turned it as the sneaker of choice of most b-boys and hip-hop artists.

The iconic full suede upper of the Puma Suede has undergone multiple revamping over the years. This kick has become one of the favorite base models for collaborations and upgrading that efficiently welded the high-performance, fashion, and the lifestyle guise.

One variation of the Puma Suede introduced is embellished with striking details to suit the modern trend. The Suede Bow Block displays a round-toe silhouette with the signature iconic details of the Suede enhanced with a bow detailing, an oversized satin bow at the heel dressed in color blocking colorway.

  • The waffle pattern on the Puma women's Suede Bow Block shoes' rubber outsole provides traction on various surfaces.
  • The brand used mesh inner lining to improve its comfort and overall breathability.
  • This pair has textured foxing tape around the midsole to provide added protection.
