The PUMA Arizona Classic Trainer Gets The Royal Treatment

The PUMA Arizona Classic trainer is an OG streamlined shoe from the archives & now arrives at 80s Casual Classics in an updated Royal colourway.

There’s just something very special about them old skool suede kicks from PUMA. The PUMA Arizona Classic trainer is a great example of the brands’ relevance and retro appeal of the classic suede stuff. As much as the trainers still look just as good today when compared to the latest silhouettes, it’s not just about the gum soles or the T-toes, it’s about the whole nostalgia attached to them. Like the fact when it comes to a major football tournament we’ll still talk about Gazza’s skilful wizardry against Scotland at Euro 96′. The fact is we all love a bit of nostalgia, which is probably half the reason our passion for retro trainers persists. The retro kerb appeal, the sporting nostalgia & the classic colourways is something PUMA do so incredibly well. Who would of thought a simple suede shoe could cause such loyalty & love for footwear. When all said and done we just can’t get enough of the classic suede stuff and this latest Arizona Classic trainer from PUMA ticks all the boxes.

The 1970s also the big cat logo brand strike up endorsement deals with soccer superstars such as Pele Günter Netzer. Thing were really popping for PUMA throughout the 70s, switching manufacturing to Yugoslavia which some die hard PUMA fans claim to be some of the greatest releases of all time. 1976 saw PUMA branch out there distribution even further to Taiwan where classics like the PUMA Arizona would first come off the assembly lines.
