This modern rendition of the Puma Suede Classic is made exclusively available for the ladies. Fitting generally true to size for most wearers, it is offered from US 5.5 to 11 in B Medium width. This low-top Puma shoe features padding on the tongue, collar, and insoles to ensure maximum in-shoe comfort. As with the original Suede, the Puma Suede Classic Satin provides a secure and customizable fit through its traditional lace-up closure with a central tongue loop tab.

A hint of feminine satin material on the Formstrip and heel cap highlights the classic sporty look of the iconic Suede silhouette. As released exclusively in women's sizes, the modern day version managed to stay true to the timeless design foundation of the Puma Suede's original profile while exemplifying an old-meets-new kind of aesthetic fit for the ladies. It retains the shoe’s signature premium suede upper loved by Puma fanatics across generations.

At least three colorways of the Puma Suede Classic Satin have already been issued. The "Pearl – Rose Gold" colorway, for one, could easily top the list of street-ready pink sneakers with its rose gold satin accents that balance out the athletic façade of the shoe. Other colorways include “Whisper White – Metallic Gold” and “Puma Black – Puma Aged Silver.”

Patterned after the iconic Suede silhouette from Puma, the Satin rendition followed the core model’s profile, but only with a subtle design upgrade for a feminine vibe. The Suede Classic’s traditional suede upper received a shiny satin update on the Formstrip and heel cap. Sealing off the look is a frosted midsole for the added oomph.

The Suede, with its legacy in sneaker culture, is unquestionably one of those sneaker models that made Puma a successful sneaker brand that it is today. Initially released in 1968, the Suede gained iconic status with its timeless design and appearances in historical sports events. During the 1968 Olympics in Mexico, 200m dash gold medalist Tommie Smith and bronze medalist John Carlos made their iconic Black Power salute wearing the Suede.

During the ‘70s era, the Suede made an influential presence in basketball courts by being a favorite of many basketball players at that time. The next decade, the ubiquitous hoop shoe transitioned into being a b-boy pick and a hip-hop fashion staple. To date, the Suede remains as influential as it has always been. Puma continuously releases countless colorways and updated Suede Classic versions throughout the years.

A modern rendition of the Suede is the Puma Suede Classic Satin. It shadows the original silhouette and features of the original model, but a touch of nice satin material adorns the Formstrip and heel cap while the midsole flaunts a frosted design. It released in women’ sizing.

  • The Puma Suede Classic Satin features a Puma Suede branding in metallic print on the lateral side, Puma’s Jumping Cat metallic logo tab on the tongue, and another Jumping Cat metallic logo on the heel.
