The Suede originally released in 1968. Back then, sneaker technology wasn't what it is today. The Suede made a very good skate shoe at the time, but purity of heritage is no reason to shirk beneficial technologies, so the silhouette has been updated for skaters. Puma and Diamond Supply have added elastic to the tongue to keep the shoe locked in place, included perforations in the vamp, a mesh collar lining, and a host of added padding all over the shoe. All over both shoes are supple suedes, plus some embellishments including embossed crocodile skin, which Diamond Supply has adopted as a part of its brand identity. The Diamond Supply Co x Puma Classic Suede will be available at Patta Amsterdam and online December 17.
