Who should buy the PUMA Cali Suede

The PUMA Cali Suede is classic trainer from the 80s highly suitable for:

  • both men and women who want a fashionable shoe with athletic vibe
  • anyone who are looking for a low-top footwear with eye-catching design

Allows a personalized fit

The upper material of the PUMA Cali Suede provides a somewhat forgiving fit as it eventually stretches and molds to the shape of the foot after continued use. 

Also, users can use the laces to adjust the fit according to their liking.

Cali Suede is a versatile lifestyle shoe

The PUMA Cali Suede is a classic sneaker with a laidback West Coast vibe. This low-top kick looks fantastic with a pair of shorts, racerback tank top, and a loose jacket. 

It can also be worn with several other clothing items, including leggings, jogger pants, and boyfriend jeans. Several wearers say that this shoe can be paired with a lot of outfits.

Offers excellent ankle mobility

Featured on this modern Cali sneaker is a smooth suede upper with perforations on the vamp. Its low-top profile allows excellent ankle mobility and its thick platform outsole not only provides extra height but also superb traction and grip.

However, some reviewers said that the support from this kick is not enough for extended use.

Durable midsole 

The PUMA Cali Suede comes with a textured midsole that is made of durable rubber. It is adorned with contrast-colored toe and heel cap. 

A striking PUMA branding is also seen at the back of the heel cap.

PUMA Cali Suede History

The original PUMA California sneaker was first released in 1983 as a training sneaker. It eventually gained popularity as a casual kick because of its relaxed West Coast-inspired silhouette. 

Reissued in the middle of the 90s, the PUMA California is still one of the popular sports-turned-casual shoes from PUMA. 

Eye-catching colorways 

It has been revamped in several different styles, including the PUMA Cali Suede, the suede version of the PUMA Cali. Most consumers agree that the PUMA Cali Suede has excellent workmanship.

Sporting the laidback profile from the 80s, this kick is presented in a smooth suede upper with eye-catching colorways.

PUMA Cali Suede delivers good traction 

A tonal synthetic leather PUMA Formstrip and a subtle gold foil branding are found on the lateral side of the shoe. 

The outsole of the PUMA Cali Suede features a unique traction pattern with the PUMA Cat near the heel. This sneaker is available in limited color options.
