The Puma Suede Emboss Iced Fluo is offered exclusively in men’s sizes from 4 to 14. Of course, the ladies can still get theirs by going one and a half sizes down from their usual size. The shoe generally fits true to size but some reported it could be a bit narrow in the toebox area.

The Puma Suede Emboss Iced Fluo features the same timeless casual silhouettes as its predecessor but with an iced out aesthetic from collar to its outsole. It comes in 3 bold but monochromatic colors that would look nice paired with a simpler top and pants.

Opt for this shoe to add a pop of color to your look. It is perfect for upbeat days, especially during spring and summer season.

The Puma Suede Emboss Iced Fluo’s upper is crafted from a soft suede material. The shoe features a traditional lace-up closure and comes in a low-top silhouette. An embossed Formstrip logo can be found on the lateral side of the shoe while a Puma Suede callout is on top of it. A logo patch is stitched on the tongue and a Puma Cat logo is placed at the heel.

The shoe has a padded collar for comfort and cushioning. Finally, the whole shoe is tinged in one bold color, which gives the shoe a monochromatic hue.

First released in the early 60s, the Puma Suede shoes were initially made for warm-ups on the basketball court. The shoe was worn by some of the greatest athletes like Walter “Clyde” Frazier and Tommie Smith, which in turn made the shoe gain popularity.

In the 80s the Puma Suede somehow became the unofficial shoe of the b-boys and was seen as the kicks for people who are into the urban lifestyle. The shoe was interpreted in different ways by the youth during this era. The laces were replaced by “fat” laces and were popular amongst young people. The shoe made its mark on a range of different scenes and became a staple in footwear history.

To this day it continues to evolve while still maintaining its authentic style. One of the many iterations of the shoe is the Puma Suede Emboss Iced Fluo. It is available in eye-catching colors and comes in a sleeker style due to the cleaner looking embossed Formstrip on the sides.

  • The outsole of the shoe almost looks like it’s transparent hence the “iced” part of the shoe’s name.
  • The outsole is quite grippy.
  • It is quite light on the foot.
