The origami-inspired Puma Suede Classic Autumn Bloom sneaker has the black and laurel wreath upper colorways dressed in three-dimensional suede flowers with metallic hints. Taking a more feminine approach allows women to experiment with their sneakers with new treatments to vintage classics like the Puma Suede.

Puma traces its heritage from the Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik or the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory that was founded in 1924 in Herzogenaurach, Germany where the company maintains its global headquarters. Company founder Rudolf Dassler was the brains behind the spike-soled running shoe worn by multiple Olympic medallist Jesse Owens in the 1936 Olympics.

The Puma Suede was first introduced in Mexico during the 1968 Summer Olympics. Olympic gold medallist Tommie Smith first wore the shoes in the podium of the 200-meter track competition. Smith waved the black and white shoe as part of a human rights protest action drawing more interest to the suede upper and white soles classic.

The OG Puma Suede trainer includes a rubber outsole and a slim profile with an all-suede upper that is modern and futuristic compared to the shoe releases at that time.

  Basketball inspirations

The Puma Suede was also better known as the inspiration behind another bestseller, the Puma Clyde. The vintage shoe was dubbed as the Puma Clyde of NBA legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier who had the pairs updated in 1973 to suit his needs in playing basketball.

From being an excellent basketball kick in the 1970s, the Puma Suede’s popularity slowly diminished in the late 1980s. The low-top model transitioned into a new audience that includes the hip-hop, rock, and even the skating community. The Puma Suede is the brand’s bestselling design of all time with countless design collaborations, material updates, and improvements introduced every year.

  Suede’s modern versions

With the entry of pop superstar Rihanna as a brand ambassador and creative director for the women’s line of the brand, the women’s sneaker portfolio was expanded. Among the sneakers that were recently introduced for Fall 2018 is the Puma Suede Classic Autumn Bloom. With the Puma Suede celebrating its 50th-year release, the company released more designs for its bestselling shoe this time focusing on the women’s market.

The Puma Suede Classic Autumn Bloom shoes for women is a limited release that includes two colorways: Puma Black and Laurel Wreath. The modern version involves three-dimensional suede flowers with vibrant metallic hints that are inspired by the Japanese art of origami.
