When the Dassler brothers broke off from each other to form adidas and PUMA, they couldn’t have known that the two footwear companies would grow to become giants in the arena. While it does keep up with the times, PUMA’s collection is founded largely on the inimitable array of classic silhouettes from the early years.

Although they may have originally been designed for the purpose of sports, classic PUMA sneakers survive — often in their original form — to this day thanks to their versatile design and high-quality construction. Take the timeless PUMA Suede Classic, for example — designed for basketball and adopted by the breakdance scene in the ’70s, it remains one of the most popular PUMA sneakers for its understated style. That’s a common story amongst the PUMA catalog, which covers sports, subculture, and the modern day with ease.

The PUMA Speedcat took a path rarely traveled by a sneaker. Instead of associating with running, basketball, or football, the Speedcat became the collaborative field of play between PUMA and motorsport legends Sparco. You’re more likely to see the Speedcat on the F1 track than the running track.
