PUMA Top Winner (Made in Italy)


As the name subtly eludes, the PUMA Top Winner was designed as an athletic trainer, particularly for court sports, such as basketball, racquetball, squash, badminton, or tennis (to name a few). In general this model was produced as a cross-training shoe – to be used for sporting in general, and not one particular sport – but overtime it has became a more casually worn piece, especially by (and thanks to) the fashion-conscious football fans of the 1980′s.

While the silhouette itself has yet to be forgotten – even being re-released in various colorways of tumbled leather and plush nubuck – it’s definitely not one that frequently comes up in daily trainer talk as it’s popular has dwindled with its again. Pictured here is a classic white and navy blue Top Winner from PUMA’s prehistoric days. The “made in Italy” statement is not just a sneaker nerd fact, but in actuality a claim to the shoe’s quality and age.
