Puma Suede Platform Galaxy History
German footwear brand Puma released the Puma Suede in 1968 as the first basketball shoe to use suede instead of leather or canvas as the upper material. It was revolutionary, and its uniqueness back then was just one of the many reasons why it reached its current iconic and classic status.
The low-top Puma Suede became a favorite among different audiences from basketball players to break dancers in the hip hop community, skateboarders, and fashion enthusiasts across generations. Up to now, after five decades of consistent market presence, the Suede remains a relevant sneaker worldwide.
Like other Puma classics, the Puma Suede comes in countless colorways and material and/or construction variations. In Summer of 2016, Puma transformed this icon into a platform version following the success of Rihanna’s Fenty Creeper shoe from the brand. The Puma Suede Platform has since then joined Puma’s arsenal of stylish go-to rubber-sole sneakers for the ladies.
Like the original Suede low-tops, the contemporary platform rendition also received several more versions and transformations. Adding to the Puma Suede Platform Core, Puma Suede Platform Trace, Puma Suede Platform Gold, and Puma Suede Platform Elemental, among many others, is the Puma Suede Platform Galaxy, which took inspirations from stars and galaxies and the classic Suede tooling.
It features a full smooth suede upper that sits atop an elevated rubber platform sole unit. The laces give a more feminine appeal as it dons a slightly wider satin material instead of traditional flat cotton ones. The signature Formstrip branding comes with a shimmer suede accent that matches the metallic foil Puma Suede lateral branding. Each pair of the Puma Suede Platform Galaxy retails for $100.
