Dry feet in Suede Classic
This shoe upper is crafted from a suede material with a water-resistant finish to keep your feet dry from the elements.
The tongue is crafted from a mesh material that adds to the shoe's visual appeal, while round laces with reflective accents grace the center of the shoe, which allows visibility in low light conditions.
Both the tongue and collar are padded for extra comfort and cushioning, while perforation detailing is placed on both the shoe's sides for breathability.
History of Puma Suede Classic Weatherproof
The Puma Suede was initially introduced by Puma as a warm-up basketball sneaker and was released in 1968. The shoe was deemed to be an innovative shoe during that time because it is the first basketball shoe to stray away from the usual canvas upper and utilized leather suede instead.
One of the more notable moments of the Puma Suede, which is one of the factors that helped cement its name in sneaker history, is when two young African-American athletes won medals in the 1968 Olympics. The two athletes ranked places in the competition wearing Puma Cleats, and as they were being awarded, they stood on a platform with only their socks on and their right hands balled into a fist while the other's holding Puma Suedes. The athletes did this to show support for human rights during that time, which is known today as "The 1968 Olympics Black Power Salute."
One of these iterations is the Puma Suede Classic Weatherproof, which as its name implies, is water-resistant. It comes in trendy earth tone colorways and round laces with reflective accents.
