Many would agree that the Puma Suede is one of those classics that look even better as time passes by. It's continuously reinvented, copied, and redesigned, with the original shoe re-released due to retro demand. To sneaker enthusiasts, the Suede just gets better with each new edition.

At the time of its release, the Puma Suede stood out among the leather and canvas shoes worn by everyone on the basketball court. It completely changed the status quo as it offered durability and a lightweight feel at the same time.

Soon enough, it became the signature footwear of ‘80s hip-hop stars and b-boys alike. It then became a classic staple in Puma’s shoe catalog, spawning many collaborative releases and new designs. One such version is the Puma Suede Classic Mono Ref Iced, which features reflective accents and dotted shoelaces for an eye-catching flair.
