As part of PUMA‘s ongoing celebration of the Suede‘s 45th anniversary, the brand has worked up this “Sapphire” colorway that pays tribute to the original launch colorway from 1968. As sapphires are also a symbolic gemstone of 45th wedding anniversaries, the use of the vibrant blue hue is a fitting one. This release features a premium sapphire blue suede upper with tonal formstrip, tonal leather accents on the tongue and heel, and contrasting laser-etched “Sapphire” logo by the heel. A leather lining on the tongue and heel adds a nice touch to these Japanese-made Suedes. The PUMA Suede “Sapphire” will be releasing globally on November 8 at select PUMA accounts.
