The Puma Platform is cool and cute, and is a women’s only sneaker. The featured thick and ridged platform outsole makes a nice combination with the soft suede upper. Many of the buyers have known this shoe from the Rihanna’s Fenty Creepers, a collaboration of Puma and the celebrity’s label, Fenty. The black ones do look very similar! No wonder many users get so much attention and are asking about the price!
The line of the Puma Suede Platform has an interesting story behind it. In the 60’s, it was used as a basketball warm-up shoe. Then later is it was quickly adopted by the hip hop crowd, and turned it into a pop culture icon.
If you are after a comfy, stylish go-to shoe with attitude, this one may be what you need. They come at a reasonable price, and nice colorways too. The series includes Suede Platform Gold, Reset, and CORE. The Gold features a golden toe cap with a white shoe; the Core has pink, and the popular oatmeal and black colors that are similar to Rihanna’s Creepers. The Reset features one-single-color shoe from upper to the sole. They are certainly good to match with the Summer look.
The shoes are generally true to size. A majority of wearers find them comfy, a good shoe for work, play or kicking around all day. However, some do also feel the need to go a half to one size down while some find the shoe slightly small. If you are buying them online, it is always better to choose the shop with an easy exchange policy.
Upper / Midsole/ outsole
The shoe uses a suede upper with rubber platform outsole with ridge tooling at the toe. The lace closure offers a snug fit. The shoe lining is soft and the sole is very flexible, not chunky at all.
