Puma California Casual History

The Puma California is one of the most iconic kicks in the brand’s tennis series. It is an original style born out of the tennis courts, evolving from the 1983 model made for the Argentinian grand slam champion Guillermo Vilas. The shoe became popular on the streets of California; hence, it adopted a new name and made its way into sneaker history.

Inspired by the relaxed lifestyle of the West Coast, the Puma California Casual shoes offer a fresh take on the original and iconic California silhouette. They updated the look with bold colors while staying true to the model's legacy, perfect for those who want to own an item from the modern sneaker history.
