Puma Vikky Platform VR History
The original silhouette that the Vikky Platform VR (Velvet Rope) is based on was a basketball shoe designed for women—the Puma Vikky. The classic featured a low-profile outsole, low-cut design, and a full suede upper. It had a certain sassy look that made it instantly popular.
In the years since its first release, the model would see many reworkings concerning fabric (leather, canvas, and jersey), cut (low- and mid-tops), and shape (low profile and platform). It would also be reissued and renamed as the Puma Vikky SoftFoam.
The Puma Vikky Platform VR is one iteration of the classic silhouette. Instead of a suede upper, the newer version features a synthetic leather material and an elevated sole.
