Puma Turin History
One of the most distinguished shoe and sportswear brands, Puma started off with a soccer shoe called the Atom. The shoe was the first soccer boot that had studs screwed into the outsole for better traction on the field. This started Puma’s path as one of the first and foremost producers of superior soccer shoes.
Just two years after, the Puma “Brasil,” which took its DNA from the Atom, was introduced into the public and to the soccer world. A couple of professional soccer teams won their respective titles while their players were wearing the “Brasil.”
In 1957, Puma successfully patented the “Formstrip.” This almost unassuming overlay was instrumental in giving Puma shoes exceptional hold and support. It is now a trademark of Puma that is almost present in all the shoes they produce.
Fast forward to this year, Puma’s affinity for soccer shoes, albeit with a more lifestyle flair continues in the unveiling of the Puma Turin. The now famous and bold Formstrip still covers the sides of this shoe. The Puma Turin is basically a fusion of the things that have made Puma such a major player in the lifestyle and performance footwear categories.
Puma Turin Style
The Puma Turin is a low-top, lace-up, football-inspired sneaker characterized by a soft synthetic leather material on the upper, rubber outsole, and Puma brandings at the tongue and lateral sides. It exudes a classic, timeless look, making it ideal for either sporty or casual wear.
Fit & Sizing
The Puma Turin is a unisex style, but only runs in men’s sizes which range from 4 to 14, half sizes included. For women’s sizing, orders should be 1.5 sizes down from one’s usual size. The fit is generally true to size for those with normal foot width as this shoe is a bit narrow especially in the toe box.
Definitely a classic, the Puma Turin has a minimal design. The toe box is rounded with a distinguishable rubber toe bumper. The heel part bears the Puma Cat logo. On the lateral sides can be found the bold Puma Formstrip and the Puma No. 1 logo. The tongue also displays the Puma No. 1 logo. The Turin also features a lace closure for a snug fit and a rubber outsole for grip.
- The Puma Turin has a suede variation called as the Puma Turin Suede. Other Turin variations include the Puma Turin NL, the Puma Turin JR, the Turin Preschool, and the Turin AC Kids.
- An EVA foam in the midsole provides industry-grade cushioning.
