The Puma Basket Heart Canvas is one of the many Puma Basket models that retains the classic silhouette of the original but incorporates modern elements to give a new look and fresh appeal to the shoe. Its lacing system, for one, is a bit out of the ordinary. Unlike most sneakers, this Puma Basket Heart version boasts oversized laces in two sets with different materials so buyers could achieve varying looks – one is a pair of grosgrain ribbon laces for a casual sporty look, and another pair of satin laces for a touch of elegance to the shoe's athletic roots.

The Puma Basket is a successful and well-received core shoe model from the German sports brand. Along with other timeless Puma shoes such as the Puma Suede, Puma Roma, Puma Clyde, and the Puma California, the Basket silhouette originated as a performance sports shoe but, through time, was able to transition into a casual or a lifestyle sneaker model successfully.

The Puma Basket first made a solid appearance on basketball courts during the early ‘70s as the leather alternative to the Puma Suede. It shadows the Suede's general profile and features with one primary distinction – the Suede has a suede upper, while the Basket utilizes long-lasting leather.

Presently, the Puma Basket has a myriad of colorways released throughout the years. Several reworks have also been made to the original silhouette, which resulted in different Puma Basket versions and collaborations, including the Puma Basket Heart that first released in 2016.

On the lateral side of these Puma Basket shoes are glittered or sequined Formstrip for an added feminine and fancy touch.
