If you're wondering what is Suede, it is basically a type of leather with a napped finish which is made from the underside of the skin. I haven't gotten anything Suede yet, as I know I wouldn't be able to take care of it. Suede is less durable compared to normal leathers and needs extra care. I have quite a rough lifestyle, so go figure..
But as for now, I may make an exception! Celebrating the 45th anniversary since the first Puma Suede came out, "Future Suede" has become the new addition to the collection. The "Future Suede" retains the signature 1968 profile of the Classic Suede and it is light on weight, light on suede and has futuristic characteristics such as a lightweight bottom, painted midsole & neoprene tongue.
