Good to know

The Puma Suede Bow Galaxy women’s sneaker comes in sizes 5.5 to 11. With its suede upper material and elastic laces, this lace-up sneaker may not provide a lot of stretch, especially for users with wide feet. However, because it is a tad bigger than the other Puma sneakers, buyers are advised to size down to get the perfect fit.

Show off your feminine side with the Puma Suede Bow Galaxy. Wear this low-top kick with a pair of cropped pants and a plain white top for a simple yet elegant look. This shoe also looks fantastic with mid-calf leggings or shorts.

This iteration of the popular Puma Suede Bow sneaker features the classic low-top silhouette and the feminine bow in the heel that are inherent to the collection. It uses full suede for its upper and good-quality rubber for its outsole.

Inspired by the stars in the galaxy, this sneaker utilizes a shimmering suede on its vamp. The metallic Puma Suede branding is seen on the lateral side of the shoe, while the satin Formstrip is present on both sides.

Puma is a global shoe and apparel manufacturing company that started in Germany. The company is, in fact, a product of a lifelong rift between 2 brothers. Rudolf Dassler and his brother Adolf founded the family-owned shoe factory called The Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory in 1924. But when he and his brother had a falling out, Rudolf established his own company in 1948.

The brand has released several shoes, but it is best known for its soccer shoes, the Atom and the Super Atom, and its suede basketball sneakers, the Puma Suede.  

For almost 50 years, the Suede remains as one of the sought-after sneakers from Puma. Launched in 1968, the design and features of the Puma Suede are well ahead of the status quo. The suede upper is a stark contrast against the canvas and leather shoes of its contemporaries.

The success and fame of the Puma Suede continued in the 80s, 90s, and 00s. It has become a shoe of choice of sneakerheads from all walks of life, from street artists to punk rockers. However, the most memorable moment for the Puma Suede was when it was endorsed by basketball legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier.

Because of Frazier’s popularity, everyone else wanted a piece of his signature style - cool yet rebellious. Puma introduced the Puma Clyde, making Frazier the first ever basketball athlete to have a shoe model named after him. In just 1 year, 2 million pairs of Puma Clyde was sold.

On the other hand, the Puma Suede Bow Galaxy is a feminine update to the iconic sneaker. It is engineered using the classic Puma Suede silhouette with the addition of an oversized satin bow in the heel.  

  • The satin bow of this sneaker features a metallic trim to differentiate it from the other Puma Suede Bow models.
