Puma GV Special Lux History

Founded in 1948, Puma has been a pioneer in the world of athletic kicks and sneakers. Due to their timeless style, plenty of the brand’s sports footwear later become lifestyle wear staples. Such is the case with the Puma GV Special Lux shoes, which are the upgraded version of the GV Special.

The original model is taken straight out of Puma’s 1982 archives. It’s a classic favorite that was brought back by Puma, featuring a fresh take. The shoe was designed in collaboration with the Argentinian tennis player Guillermo Vilas, who was known for his charm, good looks, and his one-handed backhand stroke.

This partnership has led to a line of tennis shoes that matched well with Vilas’ personal style and technique on the court. With uppers made up of premium materials and a classic sports silhouette, the GV Special stood out. Now, the GV Special Lux is set to be as iconic as the player himself when it comes to a progressive yet timeless style.
