Puma Suede Classic + LFS Style
The upper of the Puma Suede Classic + LFS does not depart from the material and form of the original. As such, it exudes that classic feel that many appreciate not only because of its sophistication but also because of the ease that it affords them when they’re choosing outfits.
Puma Suede Classic + LFS History
The original Puma Suede was first seen in 1968, and it has never been away from the spotlight ever since. Its popularity is due in part to certain historic events that it prominently became an important part of. The Black Power salute made by American runners Tommie Smith and John Carlos during the 1968 Olympics is a good example of such moments. Photos of the event show the runners’ removed Suedes sharing the winning podium, giving them an immortal spot in that historically relevant moment.
Another big break given by the Jumping Cat brand to the Suedes came in 1973, when basketball’s Walter “Clyde” Frazier came to Puma to ask for wider versions of the already ubiquitous Suedes. The company immediately created a pair for him, and a multitude of replicates were distributed in the market as the Puma Clyde, which proved to be a tremendous success.
Through the years, the Suede has been transformed numerous times; on some occasions, the transformations were under the watchful eyes of such innovative designers and influencers as Solange Knowles and even Rihanna. The current Puma Suede Classic + LFS is one of the most recent releases that are aimed at wearers who are more concerned with style than performance.
