South Africa, 8 January 2024 – PUMA and PLEASURES are back, introducing a new take on the classic PUMA Suede.

The big-stepping PUMA x PLEASURES Suede XL is inspired by the nostalgia of ‘90s and early 2000s skateboarding footwear. Featuring exaggerated proportions, the Suede XL is kitted out with a padded tongue and padded Formstrip, plus ultra-wide laces, evoking the overstated aesthetics of modern skate culture.

The sneaker comes with a black upper and black laces, as well as contrasting cream hits throughout. Simple logo hits appear on the tongue, in the form of PUMA’s jumping cat logo and the PLEASURES wordmark, while PLEASURES is also inscribed on the shoe’s midsole.

This Suede XL follows previous collaborations between PUMA and PLEASURES, including a full apparel collection and the DIY-inspired Overdyed Velophasis sneaker from mid-2023.

The PUMA x PLEASURES Suede XL is available from, PUMA Retail stores, Shelflife, Al Capone, and Archive. Recommended retail price R2299.
