In the ‘60s, PUMA’s German design and development teams began to perfect sport shoemaking. They considered human factors that other companies weren’t thinking of yet. Their heightened awareness of ergonomics helped them develop a new approach to footwear. These shoes were made in Europe, super high quality, tough to replicate, and conformed to the foot once broken in. PUMA’s first professional tennis shoe, the Match 74 were made with high quality leather, joint support for extra comfort, and clean, smooth lines. Today’s version features a brilliant white full-grain leather upper with a retro nubuck mudguard, used back in the day for extra stability when swiftly changing direction on the tennis court.
This season PUMA reissues the Match 74 and these classic tennis styles: a Boris Becker 30th anniversary tee, a tennis polo, a vintage track jacket, and two throwback messenger bags. Some styles are back for the first time. All are #unmatched and ready for more. Watch the campaign video below and shop the collection now.
