Get ready to relive the chunky charm of 90s and early 2000s skateboarding with the latest collab from PUMA and PLEASURES. The PUMA x PLEASURES Suede XL takes the iconic Suede to new heights, with exaggerated proportions and bold details that channel the overstated aesthetics of modern skate culture.
A Shoe Steeped in Skate Nostalgia:
This ain’t your average Suede. The Suede XL boasts a chunky, oversized silhouette inspired by classic skate kicks. Think padded tongue, extra-plush Formstrip, and ultra-wide laces for a seriously statement-making look.
Black Beauty with Subtle Accents:
The Suede XL keeps things sleek with a predominantly black upper and laces. But don’t be fooled by the monochrome base – subtle cream accents throughout, like the stitching and branding, add a touch of understated contrast.
Branding for the Bold:
PUMA and PLEASURES keep the branding clean and classic. You’ll find the iconic PUMA jumping cat logo and PLEASURES wordmark adorning the tongue, while the PLEASURES name gets etched on the midsole.
More Than Just a Shoe:
This Suede XL drop marks the latest chapter in the ongoing PUMA x PLEASURES collab saga. It follows a successful apparel collection and the DIY-inspired Overdyed Velophasis sneaker from mid-2023.
