Today we’ll take a closer look and review the features of the Puma Classic Suede, one of the most iconic shoes on the market. This sneaker was first released in 1968, the same year the Puma Roma. It was introduced under the name Puma Crack and over the time the brand changed its name to Clyde, States until it finally settled with what we have today, the Puma Suede. The sneaker has been over the same development over the years like many other iconic silhouettes of its time, from being endorsed by NBA players like Walt Frazier to becoming a lifestyle sneaker worn by countless celebrities. 

The pair we got recently was the one in red with white and beige. First thing that you’ll notice out of the box is the quality of the materials used, given that they only cost $70 or even less when you get them on sale. We’ve gotten used to the more modern sneakers materials, which even if they use the latest technology are mostly made of synthetic materials. The Puma Suede stands out in this regard. They fit true to size and are comfortable out of the box but we cannot forget that they do not go near the comfort of the more modern sneakers, at least when wearing them for long hours.


The Puma Classic Suede features a minimalistic, stylish design that is one of the most recognizable on the market. The suede Puma is using for these is still of a great quality, which makes these a shoe that you can wear pretty much all year around. There is synthetic leather around the ankle area where some padding was added to complement the one from the tongue. The side perforations add a bit of air flow but it feels like they are more of a design element rather than a functional one. Overall is a classic design that makes these a stylish casual sneaker and not a whole lot more when it comes to performance in any other areas.

Sole Unit

The sole unit is one that you can find at most classics from the 70’s with a  rubber outsole that expands to the midsole that’s being secured by a row of stitching. On top there is the classic EVA removable insole that adds most of the plush feel you get when you first put these on. As we expected, in our Puma Classic Suede review, such a shoe is great for casual wear when standing up for long hours is not needed. You can use them for some sport activities that do not require much support, that is why it is a great back to school sneaker.

Bottom Line 

To conclude our Puma Classic Suede review, this is one of the best retro sneakers around that you can get on the market today. In terms of classics it is up there with the adidas Campus and the Nike Blazer. At just $70 retail price it offers a great value as it is made to last and can be matched up with pretty much any attire. This is a shoe that you cannot go wrong with and likely we’ll see it around for a long long time.
