Puma Suede Platform Explosive History

Platform sneakers are now back in the market. Thanks to Rihanna, who dug the market's passion for leg-lengthening footwear minus the heels. In the 90s, the crowd's adoration with the sky-high thickness of platform started. It dramatically sunk and resurrected in 2015 when the famous music artist Rihanna dropped her platform line sneakers.

The Fenty Creepers was taken a cue from the 1960s basketball kick Puma Suede, and displayed the striking thick and ridged sole with unique designs on the upper. Trailing the success of Rihanna's Fenty Creeper line, the brand dropped several iterations molded from the Suede silhouette, revamped with chunky sole suited for the ladies' feet.

The Puma Suede Platform debuted in summer of 2016 that showcased striking design on its premium suede upper. The side panels are designed with eye-catching Puma branding to add distinct look. There are several variations of the Puma Suede Platform launched, and one of it is the Explosive model. Aside from the shiny synthetic leather Formstrip logo and heel, this model has stayed authentic to the Puma Suede Platform details.
