Cape Town, 29 January 2024 – Bigger is better, as PUMA introduces an enormous remix of the iconic Suede, arriving in the form of the Suede XL as seen worn by Hip Hop star Maglera.

From the Olympic podium to the dancefloor, the Suede has seen it all. Named for its signature material, it is best known for the rise of graffiti writers and B-boy crews who developed a love for the silhouette. But this latest chapter in the Suede’s history is a pretty big deal.

PUMA’s larger-than-life Suede XL is inspired by the nostalgia of ‘90s and early 2000s skateboarding footwear. Heavily cushioned with exaggerated proportions, the Suede XL features a padded tongue and Formstrip, plus ultra-wide laces to further evoke the overstated aesthetics of Y2K skate culture. The supersized sneaker touches down in an “Electric Blue” colourway, with more to come later in 2024.

The PUMA Suede XL is available from 8 February 2024 from, PUMA Retail stores, Sportscene, Archive, Side Step, Shesha, Cross Trainer and Superbalist.
