PUMA Blue Star


The PUMA Blue Star is almost identical to the PUMA Red Star except that it’s – of course – blue. This vintage pair of running shoes feature a suede upper with contrasting white side stripes, laces, tongue, and heel spot, and they’re completed with a rubber gum outsole. Gold lettering is printed into the outer side wall, proudly displaying the name and model.

A dead giveaway for the production location – West Germany – is the square shaped PUMA logo printed on the dark blue tongue in white, green, and black. Many of the PUMA shoes from the 1970′s and 80′s bare this style of tongue logo, under which is clearly written “Made in West Germany”. Other versions of the Blue Star have been seen to feature a foam-based white tongue with the PUMA logo type embossed into it. Pairs featuring this alternate style are typically found to be made in Italy.
