Puma Vikky SoftFoam History

One of the classic Puma sneakers is the Vikky model.

Throughout the years, it has been released in many versions – from platforms to slip-on canvas, canvas, and leather among many others.

Later on, the Puma Vikky was re-introduced as the Puma Vikky SoftFoam. The Puma Vikky SoftFoam has similar features with the Vikky classic, but it utilizes the new Soft Foam Comfort insert, which is basically a memory-hybrid foam that keeps heat retention to a minimum and exhibits an anti-odor coating to keep the feet fresh. To date, the Vikky SoftFoam has been slowly making its way into the athleisure trend in the fashion scene.
