PUMA and Pleasures are back together, this time introducing a new take on the classic PUMA Suede.

The shoe 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.

Featuring a low-profile colorway, 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 Pleasure wordmark, while Pleasures is also inscribed onto the shoe’s midsole.

This new Suede XL follows up on previous collaborations between PUMA and Pleasures, including an apparel collection in October, and the DIY-inspired Overdyed Velophasis sneaker from mid-2023.

The PUMA x Pleasures Suede XL drops Jan. 6.
