Puma Basket Classic Winterized History

The Puma Basket Classic Winterized traces its roots to a Puma shoe model that was released in 1971. The Puma Basket was meant to be the full-grain leather counterpart of 1968’s Puma Suede, the model whose silhouette the Basket took after.

As the name implies, Puma Basket was originally targeted at basketball players. However, its sleek and clean look made a surprising appeal to the hip-hop crowd, which eventually helped secure for the Puma Basket a spot in the Trainer Hall of Fame as it became an icon in its own right.

The current version retains the form of the Puma Basket, but borrows the suede from the Basket’s predecessor and silhouette inspiration. More durable rubber outsoles and rugged laces complete it with a winterized appeal.

Puma Basket Classic Winterized Style

With its either black or brown upper, the Puma Basket Classic Winterized will easily go with denims, khaki pants, some tights, and other items that are usually in an active person’s wardrobe. They are perfect for casual walks even in the harsh winter cold.

Fit & Sizing

This Puma Basket Classic Winterized comes in medium widths for both men and women. The men’s pair comes in a wide range of sizes, the smallest is 8.5 while the largest is 13. For the ladies, the smallest is 6.5 while the largest is 10. The shoes are said to run true to size.

Notable Features

The smooth leather upper is the best feature in this shoe because of its premium look and simple appeal.
