Like the original Puma Suede Classic, this Mono Iced version features a low-cut and basketball-inspired profile for flexible ankle movement, traditional lace closure for a snug and personalized fit, and an extra tab on the tongue that helps keep it from sliding to the sides. Perforations are presented parallel to the Formstrips for breathability, while the padded collar provides extra cushioning.
The Puma Suede Classic Mono Iced is available in men's sizing from 4 to 14 in D Medium width and women’s sizing from size 5 to 12 in B Medium width. It runs true to size for most purchasers. Wide-footed people are advised to get a half or full size bigger than their usual to attain a more comfortable fit as some wearers find this Puma shoe a bit narrow in the toe box.
The Puma Suede Classic Mono Iced Style is an updated iteration of the ever iconic silhouette from the brand, the Puma Suede Classic. Staying true to its roots, this low-top sneaker features a smooth-looking monochromatic suede upper and an updated iced rubber outsole with semi-translucent semblance. Still an icon as it has ever been, the Puma Suede Classic Mono Iced retains the original’s sport-inspired style and street-ready façade. It displays a versatile flair that one can easily wear to dress up or down any set of wardrobe from day to night.
The Puma Suede Classic Mono Iced is one of the many versions of the Suede Classic. Like the original Suede Classic, this iteration also boasts of a sleek suede upper that offers stability and added foot support and protection, but only in monochromatic colors. Another feature that gives this low-top sneaker its identity and sets it apart from the other Suede Classic iterations is the iced rubber outsole, which provides excellent grip and traction while exuding an added character to the shoe’s overall look.
Without a doubt, the Puma Suede Classic has long proven its iconic and classic status in the sneaker industry. It has been around since the late 1960s, and it only gets better throughout the years.
The Suede officially released in 1968 by Puma and popularized by basketball superstar Walt “Clyde” Frazier. It was the shoe that Clyde loved wearing until he asked Puma in 1970 to make a wider Suede version of it and called it as the Puma Clyde. The year of its commencement, the Suede made an appearance during the Olympic Games in Mexico City when it was worn by Tommie Smith, a civil rights icon and 200-meter dash gold medalist, and his teammate John Carlos, a 200-meter dash bronze medalist.
In the '90s, the Puma Suede's popularity reached the hip-hop culture, and it became a signature "B-Boy" shoe. Up to this day, it remains relevant and a top favorite among different groups of buyers from one generation to the next. Various Puma Suede versions have been made available since the beginning, and each version stands out individually while retaining the core that makes the Suede Classic genuinely iconic.
One of the many versions of the Puma Suede Classic is the Puma Suede Classic Mono Iced. Released in 2015, it features a head-to-toe monochromatic suede upper sitting atop an iced rubber outsole. Features from the original Suede are evident in this version, such as the Puma Formstrips with perforation details, the Puma Suede foil branding on the side, the Jumping cat logo on the tongue and heel, and the traditional lace closure.
- The Puma Suede foil branding is displayed on the sides, just above the Formstrips. Other brandings are visible on the tongue and heel.
- This shoe comes with two sets of laces in different colors.
- Other retailers refer to this shoe as the Puma Suede Classic + Mono Iced.
