The iconic PUMA Suede shoe launched in 1968 and since then has been influencing street style, transcending generations and cultures with its legendary, classic, cool vibe. The shoes remain as relevant today as they were when they launched five decades ago.
In honour of the Suede’s 50th anniversary this year, Puma Golf is launching its Throwback Collection, headlined by the Suede G, featuring the same iconic style of a classic Suede shoe with modern performance technologies ideally suited for the golf course. Building off of the retro design of the Suede G, Puma's Throwback Collection for men and women, will include accessories and apparel that pay homage to yesteryear including a polo, P Cap and a T7 Jacket, delivering timeless style from head to toe.
“The Suede has been a street legend since day one. It’s clean, classic, comfortable, and now we’re excited to bring the same iconic look to the golf course,” said Grant Knudson, Head of Footwear & Accessories, Puma Golf. “The Suede G will celebrate the retro design of the original version, but incorporate traction and function that’s vital to a spikeless golf shoe. We’re excited to join Puma in this milestone celebration, and provide golfers with the same epic style that revolutionised the sneaker world 50 years ago.”
Mimicking the classic style of Puma’s original Suedes, the Suede G shoe ($120) is constructed with a premium, waterproof, low-nap Suede upper and microfiber leather formstripe, with a gold foil stamped Puma #1 logo on the quarter and Cat logo on the heel. The shoes were redesigned with an array of on-course performance benefits including the innovative hidden traction outsole which provides the appearance of a fashion-forward sneaker off the course, while offering excellent recessed spikeless traction for unrivalled grip and stability on any surface on the course. The G features a sleek shaped last for a stylish toe-down look and added comfort. The ultra-soft PU insole provides added support for long-lasting comfort. The golf version, which will come in a special edition Suede 50th Anniversary shoe box, is available very soon in Quiet Shade and Black for men, and a Quarry and Majesty (purple) colorway for women.
The Throwback Collection of apparel and accessories is a nod to Puma’s heritage and classic style, taking inspiration from the original Puma Dassler logo to create distinctive, throwback style and graphic patterns. Each piece incorporates a modern take on classic style, providing golfers with options that can seamlessly transition from the office to the first tee and the 19th hole.
“The Throwback Collection is unlike anything you’ve ever seen in golf. It merges classic Puma style, taking inspiration from its throwback looks and original Dassler logo, with modern, game-changing performance fabrics that can seamlessly take you from the golf course to the office,” said Kristin Hinze, Global Head Golf Apparel, Puma Golf. “In honour of the 50th Anniversary of the Suede, and the introduction of the iconic shoe to golf, we have built a timeless collection of apparel and accessories that beautifully and classically represents Puma’s rich heritage as the world’s leading sports and lifestyle brand.”
