As the leather counterpart of the classic Puma Clyde sneakers, Puma Basket was initially intended as a basketball warm-up sneaker. Sporting a leather upper, this shoe was designed as a winter shoe. More so, it has a unique look that is clean and simple making its overall look mature and sophisticated.

Until 1971, the shoe basked its glory and went through different reiterations of colorways, materials, and designs. One of the released versions from Puma is the Basket C 4th of July pack, which features red, blue, and white colorways with star decorations all over.

  • The signature Formstrip is styled with stars and stripes for that more patriotic look.
  • Branding is kept minimal as the logo can only be seen on the tongue. The Basket label, on the other hand, can be spotted on the lateral side of the sneaker.
