In short: The tallest pair of Puma shoes is the Puma Mayze. It has a heel height of 2 inches (5 cm) and a platform height of 2 inches (5 cm), making you roughly 1.8 to 1.9 inches taller.
The Puma brand is known for creating sneakers for the fastest athletes on the planet, but they are also known for their fashionable sport-inspired lifestyle shoes.
So, which Puma shoes actually make you taller? Here are the tallest Puma shoes ranked by height. Most of these shoes are catered for women, but there are options for men too.

The Puma Suede has a sole height of almost an inch but in reality, the shoe makes you about 0.6 inches (1.52 cm) taller – definitely not the tallest of all the Puma shoes.
As the name suggests, the Puma Basket is a basketball-inspired sneaker first released in 1968. Because of its neutral design, you can practically wear the shoe with anything.
The signature basketball court-inspired style features a clean leather upper, classic PUMA Formstrip, and gold metallic PUMA Basket callout at the side to celebrate a new era of style.
The leather upper is just right for me, not too thick and not too thin. Furthermore, the full lace closure is good enough to keep both of my feet securely inside each sneaker.
Whether you go for the black or white colorway, the Puma basket is timeless. In fact, I’d say the shoe shares a resemblance with the Nike Air Force 1, although slightly thinner.
The Puma Suede has a sole height of an inch or so but in reality, the shoe makes you about 0.63 inches (1.6 cm) taller – good enough to add just a little bit of height.
As far as design goes, the Puma Suede is one of the most timeless and versatile sneakers on the market. It’s a pair of casual sneakers that was first released in the late 1960s.
The Puma Suede has been around for decades, back when the shoe was sold and made for playing tennis. Now the shoe is considered a fashion sneaker rather than a sports shoe.
From gangsters to Lady Gaga, this classic Puma sneaker looks good on both men and women with jeans, shorts, and even semi-formal attire – you just can’t go wrong with it.
I often buy the Puma Suede shoe in multiple colors not because it makes me slightly taller, but because I like them so much. The pair is comfortable out of the box with a little breaking in.
What can you say about such a timeless and classic tennis shoe? I’m not sure of the type of suede they are made of but it wears hard, resists water and bleeding, and cleans up nicely.
The Puma RS-0 has a sole height of about 1.32 inches (3.4 cm) but in reality, the shoe makes you somewhere between 1.1 to 1.3 inches taller – a decent boost to your height.
Taking inspiration from the original Puma RS series of 1987, the Puma RS-0 was released in 2018. The sneaker is a chunky-style sneaker, adding a decent boost to your height.
A chunky silhouette, retro RS branding, and mesh upper with leather accents define the newly reimagined RS-0. I personally like the all-black colorway but the whites are nice too.
Although the Puma RS-0 is marketed as a running shoe, I wouldn’t wear them for long-distance running. I will, however, wear it as a casual lifestyle sneaker.
The best part is, the shoe actually makes me look taller by more than an inch.
Puma Cali Wedge
The Puma Cali Wedge is one of the tallest Puma shoes, boasting a heel height of 2 inches and a platform height of 1 inch. The shoe will make you roughly 1.5 inches taller.
Not only does it look nice, but the thick sole appeals to a lot of women. The ultra-famous PUMA ambassador Selena Gomez had this to say about the Puma Cali Wedge:
“The Cali Wedge is the perfect shoe to make a statement in. They give me the height of a heel in the comfort of a sneaker and they are easy to pair with any outfit.”-Selena Gomez
The tall Puma sneaker features a leather upper, synthetic leather look overlays, perforated vamp, woven tongue label, mesh lining, and PU molded sock liner for extra comfort.
I think the Cali Wedge is one of the most stylish Puma sneakers that make you taller. It’s a bold update to the Cali silhouette with an extreme, wedge sole.
Puma Kaia Platform
The Puma Kaia Platform is yet another Puma sneaker that makes you taller, adding about 1.5 inches of height thanks to its heel height of 2 inches and a platform height of 1.57 inches.
The Kaia Platform is a new addition to the Puma Platform styles featuring a vulcanized look, resembling a pair of Vans skateboarding shoes.
It features a canvas upper with a synthetic FS and a characteristic rugged outsole, referencing the hiker hybrid trend but includes the SoftFoam+ sock liner that provides great cushioning.
Unlike super hard skateboarding shoes that need a lot of time to break in, the Puma Kaia is easy on your feet and feels much more comfortable after a couple of wears.
One of the things women love about the Puma Kaia sneakers is that the shoe doesn’t look or feel bulky, so anyone can wear them with just about any outfit.
I bought a pair for a friend of mine who is 5 feet tall, and she really appreciated the extra height. In fact, all of her friends have commented on how great they look!
PUMA x FENTY
The PUMA x FENTY is one of the tallest Puma shoes, boasting a heel height of 2.15 inches and a platform height of 1.76 inches. The shoe will make you roughly 1.5 to 1.7 inches taller.
The heel height is measured at the outsole from the middle of the heel to the sole. On the other hand, the platform height is measured at the outsole from the footbed to the sole.
PUMA x FENTY was a limited-edition collection inspired by the collaboration with Rihanna. Although Rihanna launched Fenty in 2019, her collaboration with Puma dated back to 2014.
The Fenty is an iconic suede sneaker that features super tall chunky midsoles.
At first glance, the shoe looks like the classic Puma suede casual sneakers but the major difference is the tall platform that makes the wearer look much taller.
PUMA x FENTY is only available for women.
The tallest pair of Puma shoes is the Puma Mayze, boasting a heel height of 2 inches (5 cm) and a platform height of 2 inches (5 cm). It will make you roughly 1.8 to 1.9 inches taller.
Although the PUMA x FENTY has a taller heel height than the Puma Mayze, the latter will actually make you look taller because of the taller platform height.
The Puma Mayze has a heel height and platform height of 2 inches, whereas the PUMA x FENTY has a heel height of 2.15 inches but a platform height of just 1.76 inches.
This is why the tallest Puma shoe is the Puma Mayze.
I never actually wore the shoes, but a friend of mine who is a girl loves the Puma Mayze. The shoe is super cute, true to size, and comfortable once you break them in.
The pair do seem tight in width, even with narrow feet but not uncomfortable.
