One word which instantly comes to mind as I think of the PUMA Suede Mayu is VIBRANT! A chic take on the classic suede.
“I love a platform that works across so many looks, day to night. The Suede Mayu is versatile, it’s the perfect everyday shoe!” – Dua Lipa
I can’t exactly say that it was love at first sight as I was so confused as to how I would rock such a vibrant pair of sneakers. I feared just how limiting they could be for me. However, as you can tell, I managed to calm myself down and take this on as a challenge! And let me tell you, this is the perfect pair of fiery red kicks I never knew I needed in my life.
The over-the-top proportions and playful colors of the Suede Mayu are truly reflective of both PUMA and Dua’s personal style, making her the perfect face of the new silhouette. It’s giving cool, versatility and I cannot emphasize enough on just how comfortable these wrapped platform midsole Mayu kicks are.
For those of you who may be feeling how I initially felt, rest assured as the Sued Mayu is available in a variety of colors. These include a bold blue style as worn by Dua below, the fiery red I styled above ( looks more like a bright orange to me ) , a more classic black and white option too.
Suede Mayu is part of what I consider to be such a great initiative by PUMA, the She Moves Us platform. This platform shines the spotlight on some of the women who have moved culture and sports forward. You may have seen the She Moves Us campaign through some of your favs Instagram profiles, with the latest campaigns being rolled out for International Women’s Day as well as on Mother’s Day. If not, you can simply search #SheMovesUs and join in on the conversation.
In the above unboxing, I’ve highlighted some of the key details that I found striking about the lightweight Suede Mayu:
- Premium Suede Upper
- Rubber Outsole | Debossed and foil printed PUMA Cat Logo at heel
- Low Boot
- Lace Closure
“It came mainly from the 70s, so having some standout, playful colors next to some regular neutrals, like black and white. The suede material is quite vintage with a retro feel. Then we added a nylon tongue and the open seem where you can see the foam, which is also more retro inspired.”
