Puma Vikky Platform VR Style
The Puma Vikky Platform VR has a certain fresh and saucy look that will add zest to any of your clothes. Pair your platforms with shorts, leggings, jeans, and any other casual clothing you may have.
The contemporary-meets-old-school look of the Puma Vikky Platform VR makes the sneaker a head-turner. However, the SoftFoam sockliner, which gives the shoe a plush and cushiony feel, is what makes it a winner.
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.
