The Suede hit the scene in 1968 and has been changing the game ever since. While many sneakers have come and gone since then – leaving footprints of varying sizes – it's difficult to argue any shoe having as much of a deep-rooted impact on society and culture as the Suede. From Tommie Smith’s protest on the victory stand during the 1968 Olympic games to b-boy crews in NYC adopting the shoe in the 1980s. It’s been worn by the icons of every generation – and it’s stayed classic through it all. The PUMA Suede is an icon for everyone. With the Suede VTG, PUMA is keeping the model as close as possible to its original predecessors, including a shorter vamp, no SUEDE logo on the quarter and raw edge tongue construction. Rudolf Dassler didn’t set out to create the fastest sports brand in the world – but in 1948, that’s exactly what he did. More than 70 years later, PUMA continues to push the limits of sport and culture with the same speed, innovation, and creativity in mind. The Rudolf Dassler Legacy concept features a selection of PUMA’s most iconic silhouettes from the pitch, the track, the court, and the streets. These kicks span decades and remain to this day the fastest, fiercest, and freshest shoes out there. PUMA releases here the new Rudolf Dassler Legacy pack, referencing the original introduction campaign of PUMA’s iconic Formstripe branding in 1958, now one of the most recognizable trademarks in the sportswear industry.
