Puma Suede Platform Elemental History
The Puma Suede Platform Elemental is mainly based on that iconic 1968 track and field shoe, the Puma Suede. The Puma Suede was considered a trendsetting footwear because, during that time, most runners utilized either a leather or canvas material. The silhouette also sported a thick rubber sole and a rounded toe.
The Suede became so popular that in the years following its original release, Puma issued the silhouette new colorways and updates. It also became the subject of quite a few collaborations. The Puma Suede Platform Elemental is yet another iteration of the classic. It is also inspired by the elevated sole of Rihanna’s Puma Creeper.
The Puma Suede Platform Elemental keeps much of the details of the original but updates it with a platform midsole and a fuzzy suede upper. The new model launched on October 21 of 2016 at a price of approximately $92 per pair.
