Puma is offering the Mostro Perf Leather in men’s sizing. As always, the women can get their best fit by going 1.5 down in size. The shoe has a decent interior room that can easily accommodate different foot types. It runs true to size.

Puma Mostro Perf Leather Style

The versatility of the Puma Mostro Perf Leather extends out of its usual domain. Because of the iconic silhouette and chic updates, it can be worn using chinos and joggers. For that sporty and on-the-go look, wearing it with shorts will do the trick.

Notable Features

The catchy upper design that is devoid of laces is easily the most notable feature of the Mostro Perf Leather. Puma allows the wearer to still get that exceptional fit courtesy of the adjustable and quite huge hook and loop closure. This is an excellent technology for those who are always on the go.

The numerous perforations on the leather upper clearly distinguish it from the regular model. With perforations like this, users are assured of a sweat-free and cool lifestyle.

Puma Mostro Perf Leather History

Puma originally unveiled the original Mostro in 2002 as a trainer. However, the Jumping Cat-logo company took it to a different level by virtue of its promotional ad. The catchy “walks the line between sport and style” was only part of the reason why Puma sold over 300,000 pairs in only its first year of release. These numbers spiked through the next couple of years as the sneaker found its way in the foot of several celebrities.

Puma has seen a rise in demand for the Mostro not only for its style but also for its advanced performance-oriented design. The hook and loop system was a revolutionary concept that captured the imagination of many. It is now easily one of Puma’s most sought-after low-top silhouettes.

In 2017, Puma reworked the Mostro line to cater to the current style without losing its extremely popular beginnings. Part of this change is the introduction of variations that include the Perforated Leather upper of the Mostro.
