This Bold version of the Puma Suede Platform Trace shoe is designed and made exclusively for the ladies. Sizes are available from US 5 to 11 in B Medium or Standard width. Like its predecessor, this sneaker has a low-top profile that allows ankle mobility and adjustable lace-up closure for a secure and snug fit. The collar and tongue are both slightly padded for comfort. The shoe’s overall hold and support are excellent.
Made for the ladies, the Puma Suede Platform Trace Bold exhibits a look that combines girly, edgy, and trendy that could transform a plain-looking outfit into a stunning one. The upper is of rich suede material in beautiful bold colors with tonal laces and a contrasting color accent on the heel. It sits atop an eye-catchy stacked midsole and rugged outsole, which gives extra height and oomph to your outfit. Puma brandings in a gold foil finish seal off this shoe’s look.
The Puma Suede Platform Trace Bold is almost entirely identical to its mother model, the Puma Suede Platform Trace. It boasts similar elevated, stacked, and rugged sole unit that holds together the Suede’s signature suede upper DNA. What makes this one different is a single feature – its colors. Unlike the Suede Platform Trace, this “Bold” version comes with bold and refreshing colors. The upper is almost tonal sans the color pop on the heel.
Sneakerheads and Puma followers are all familiar with the Puma Suede shoe. It is one of the footwear brand’s pillars in the sneaker category that, in fact, originally designed as a performance basketball shoe when it made its debut in the late ‘60s.
A shoe that carries a rich history that touched both the sports and fashion industries, the Suede only proves time and time again how it can always be synonymous with the words iconic and classic. It has made such strong impact in the sneaker community that even after 50 years, it remains relevant and a favorite across generations.
In 2017, Puma’s iconic Suede model got another makeover after many modernized Suede versions. The signature suede upper DNA is borrowed and placed on top of an elevated stacked midsole and a rugged outsole. It resulted in a new silhouette called the Puma Suede Platform Trace. Later on, this platform model further transformed - fresh, bold colors were introduced while the rest of the original features were retained. The resulting shoe model is called the Puma Suede Platform Trace Bold.
