The Vikki Mid Deboss is one of the mid-top versions of the classic Puma Vikky. What sets it apart from the rest, however, is its debossed texture leather upper. Similar to the classic Vikky, it also displays the Puma Formstrip on the side panels along with perforation details for added breathability. In addition, the tongue is massive given its mid-top structure.
Puma Vikky Mid Deboss History
One of the acclaimed Puma classics is the Puma Vikky. Released exclusively as a women’s shoe, it has a design inspired by the classic basketball shoe that is the Puma Clyde. To better conform to the women’s feet, the silhouette of the Clyde transformed to a narrower and slimmer structure while the necessary design concepts retained. Similar to the Clyde, the Vikky also has an all-suede upper with contrasting Puma Formstrip on the lateral sides in a leather material. Other Puma brandings are visible on the tongue, heel, and lateral sides as well. The outsole is of rubber material for grip or traction.
When the SoftFoam Comfort sockliner came into the spotlight, Puma re-introduced the Vikky as the Puma Vikky SoftFoam. Unlike the earlier releases, the re-introduced version is more comfortable with soft cushioning and an anti-odor coating.
Like other Puma classics, the Vikky received many releases in various colorways and iterations such as the Vikky Platform, the Vikky Ribbon, the Vikky Canvas, the Vikky Leopard, the Vikky Swan and much more. It also released in a mid-top version known as the Puma Vikky Mid, otherwise known as the Puma Vikky Mid SoftFoam. Basically, it is just the classic Vikky SoftFoam with all the design concepts kept in mind but transformed into a mid-top structure. It features a suede upper material with Formstrip and perforation details on the side, a traditional lace closure, the SoftFoam sockliner, and a rubber outsole.
Came 2017, Puma revamped the Vikky Mid with a debossed textured upper and a matte finish and introduced the Puma Vikky Mid Deboss. Another version of the Vikky Mid is the Vikky Mid Twill, in which the shoelaces are revamped from flat to rounded hiking laces.
