Size and fit

While the Puma Super Liga OG Retro is exclusively available in men’s sizing, women can easily rock this classic shoe because of the primary colors and the extremely low-ankle profile. 

Wide-feet sneaker lovers suggest getting this trainer half a size up for a roomier forefoot. A combination of faux leather lining and a textile-lined cushioned footbed provides additional comfort.

Puma Super Liga OG Retro Style

When it comes to styling sneakers, it all boils down to preference. However, when one has the Puma Super Liga OG Retro on, no mistake can happen because of the timeless appeal it emits. 

  • A man can never go wrong with navy casual ankle pants, a plain, round neck, yellow shirt, and a pair of Puma Super Liga OG Retro red colorway on the feet.
  • For a ladies brunch, putting on a pair of faded blue denim pants, a floral-printed top, and a grey Super Liga OG Retro that will blend in the pavement will make for a summery fashion feel.

Notable Features

The upper area composes predominantly of suede on the heel, lace guard, and the toe bump area in a T-toe construction. While leather covers the rest of the upper, stitching details are visible on Puma’s Formstrip logo on both the medial and lateral sides.

Midsoles have varying textures that seem to replicate tire patterns. A crucial design on the outsole is the pivot point at the forefoot, which provides traction and supports quick rotation.

Puma’s Jumping Cat logo peeks through a window-cut hole on the heel.

Puma Super Liga OG Retro History

Puma’s history with the football sport begins in 1950 after the entire West Germany national team wore Atom - Puma’s first football shoes - and won against Switzerland.

Since that post-war game, Puma and football have been inseparable. 

Over the years, renowned football strikers, Brazil’s Pelé, Portugal’s Eusebio, among others are seen wearing the Puma’s cleats, and the association of the shoe manufacturer to the sport is forever etched in the fans of the league. 

When sports and fashion collided, Puma, like other sports brands, got into the bandwagon and came up with its line of lifestyle shoes.

The word “league” in Germany is “liga,” and that is where the origin of the Puma Super Liga OG Retro comes from. An homage to the football league that is wearable on and off the field.
