3 reasons not to buy

  • Hard to slip on: More than a handful think that this shoe is hard to put on because of its stiff cuff and zero-stretch material.
  • Heel slippage: Users with narrow heels found the rear end of the shoe a bit loose.
  • Heel-rubbing: Due to the shoe’s high heel cuff, the break-in period (although short) felt somewhat painful since the heel tends to rub a lot on the Achilles tendon.

While most recently released sneakers feature top-of-the-line technologies and eye-catching design that appeals to the greater market, the Puma Bari Slip-On choose to be the opposite. Like the original Puma Bari, it stuck to the basics and applied the ‘less is more’ principle. 

Comparable to a typical skate shoe, the Bari Slip-On features a sturdy and plain, solid-colored canvas upper that sits atop a white vulcanized sole. SoftFoam+ sockliners for added comfort complete the whole package. 

Puma is a highly recognized name in the sports and fashion industries with over 50 years of rich history and global influence. Rudolf "Rudi" Dassler founded this German brand in 1948 after a controversial feud with his brother Adolf "Adi" Dassler who then formed the rival company Adidas. 

Puma has since established a rock-hard foundation by producing classic and iconic shoe models that each played a huge part in the history of sports, music, fashion, and different subcultures. Such Puma sneakers stay true to the brand’s heritage and remain popular to this day. Recent releases from the brand echo this. Even the modern Puma shoes give the nod to the brand's historic roots. 

One of Puma’s latest shoe models is the Puma Bari Slip-On, a slip-on version of the lightweight and breathable Puma Bari low-top shoes. It features a slip-on construction with elastic side goring, canvas uppers, and vulcanized outsoles. 

  • The rubber outsole provides grip and traction.
  • Puma brandings are placed on the back heel and lateral collar.
