Size and fit

The Culture Surf iteration of the Puma Basket Classic was manufactured with both men and women. A lacing system for the enclosure allows the user to secure the foot while providing the right amount of snug. Those who are interested can purchase the sneaker in a unisex size range.

Garments that are most appropriate for summer complement the sneaker's low-top appearance but sporting the pair during cold days while wearing pants would also suffice. For those who would like to enhance the Coastal print of the textile upper, skinny jeans would be most adequate.

Notable Features

The Coastal print of the sneaker gives a new sense of flair to the already coveted Puma Basket Classic in a textile upper. The sneaker features round laces which are intertwined into six densely lined eyelets. A metallic Puma branding with a Basket callout is positioned at the lateral sides for a first-hand distinction.

Puma Basket Classic Culture Surf History

The Puma Basket started off as a follow-through model of the iconic Puma Suede way back during the time where the 70s would embrace the 80s. It featured a clean silhouette that is emphasized by its full leather upper. The counterpart of the so-called Suede version was purposely endorsed as a basketball shoe but would gradually evolve into a lifestyle sneaker with the help of an underground movement of fans throughout the years.

The Puma Basket's name eventually accumulated grandeur when Puma revived the shoe model and inserted a "Classic" after it. The now refurnished Basket Classic walks the streets in a myriad of colorways and material renovations from textile, suede, canvas, and many more.

In line with the upcoming summer vacation days, Puma decided to create a clothing line that houses models and iterations of apparel with cool and vibrant designs. They branded the refreshing series of clothing and footwear with the title "Culture Surf." From timeless classics like the Puma Suede to undergarments and shorts, the Culture Surf phenomenon was outright contagious enough to stick to almost every garment including the well-reestablished Puma Basket Classic.

The Puma Basket Classic Culture Surf was constructed with a textile upper in a Coastal print. The original Puma Formstrip logo coincides with the dominant image of the upper that has a Puma Basket print along the vamp. Stowing away from the primary leather material, the eccentric mix of summer elements made the sneaker stand out from the Basket shoe line.
