In honor of the 50th anniversary of the original Puma Suede sneaker (first introduced in 1968), the company is launching the Throwback Collection. Comprised of a number of items including polos, Corduroy pants, and most notably the Suede G shoe ($120), the collection is aimed at players looking for classic old-school flavor. Features of the Suede G include waterproof suede uppers, hidden traction outsole for a more sneaker-like look, and classic Puma logo, among others.

“The Suede has been a street legend since day one. It’s clean, classic, comfortable, and now we’re excited to bring the same iconic look to the golf course,” said Grant Knudson, Head of Footwear & Accessories, Puma Golf. “The Suede G will celebrate the retro design of the original version, but incorporate traction and function that’s vital to a spikeless golf shoe.”

Other Throwback Collection items include Puma T7 Track Jacket ($70), Evoknit Dassler Polo ($65), PWRCOOL Dassler Polo ($75), Corduroy 6 Pocket Pants ($85), and P 100 Snapback Cap ($30). The Throwback Collection includes models for both men and women.
