Puma Basket Platform Big Strap History

The Puma Basket started life as warm-up basketball shoes in the 60s and were the kicks that launched Puma on the courts. The low-cut leather footwear may not have been as successful as Converse Chuck Taylors in the sport, but the combination of high athletic performance, sturdiness, and street-style swagger kickstarted the elevation of the footwear into hip-hop culture icon.

Due to the low-top footwear’s smash success, Puma released several colorways of the silhouette throughout the years. A high-top edition was also produced along with several Puma Basket iterations made of different types of leather material—patent leather, velvet leather, and so on. Quite a few silhouettes with platform-based soles were also launched aside from the Puma Basket Platform Big Strap, including the Puma Basket Platform Patent, Basket Platform Core, and Basket Platform Metallic.
