The Puma TSUGI Apex is solely offered in men's sizes that stretch from 5 to 14. Ladies who want to cop a pair should go 1.5 sizes up from their standard shoe size. Most users claim that the kick fits bigger than expected and recommended going half a size down.

The shoe's upper features a tongueless, slip-on construction that's crafted from a knit textile material providing a sock-like fit and designed to contour after the shape of the foot. It utilizes a lace-up closure and side leather panels that work together to provide a lockdown fit and midfoot support. 

The Puma TSUGI Apex low-top shoe, like most sneakers in the TSUGI line, displays a progressive, forward-thinking design inspired by Japanese architecture. Sleek lines and ribbed midsole detailing along with the contrasting texture of the mixed material upper all contribute to this sneaker's stylish aesthetic. Its streamlined silhouette and neutral colorways make for easy pairing with any casual ensemble. 

Walk down the street confidently as you dress the kick in an outfit that expresses your personality. Opt for joggers and a tee that's finished off with a hoodie and a cap for the ultimate athleisure look or pair it with chinos and a button-down polo for a stylish look for the lunch date you planned with your friends. 

This kick's partial evoKNIT sock upper is paired with premium leather panels to provide breathability and support at the same time. This use of mix materials also offers a stylish contrast of textures that enhances its overall aesthetic. Moreover, the modern, streamlined upper sits atop a textured midsole that pushed further the shoe's good looks. 

Puma has been one of the leaders in the footwear industry since its inception. The brand is known for their constant innovation in footwear design, from the Velcro-strapped shoe introduced in 1968 to getting rid of the shoelaces with the Puma Disc in 1991.
