The Puma Suede gets a skate-ready makeover.
One of the most iconic shoes in Puma’s arsenal, the Suede, once worn by Tommy Smith at the 1968 Olympic Games, has been revamped into a skateboarding shoe known simply as the Puma S. The original design and shape of the silhouette remains the same as the Suede, however, the original sole is replaced with a more durable vulcanized sole. It’s also reported that the tongue has some added cushioning, like any great skate shoe should have. If you can’t determine the difference between the basketball and skateboarding version, there’s always the Puma S hit on the side of the upper, with S standing for skate we assume, to clear things up.
The Puma S Vulc is available now at select Puma accounts, where you can find these three colorways and more in men, kids and toddler sizes.
