Puma Basket Platform Core History
The Basket’s silhouette was first seen in 1968. These Puma shoes started out as basketball warm-up footwear. They had a low-cut profile, leather fabric uppers, and a street-style design that belied superior performance and sturdiness. Due to the shoes’ high functionality plus trendy looks, they quickly crossed boundaries between the sports and fashion scenes and became one of the biggest icons of hip-hop culture.
Riding on the success of platform-style sneakers, the Puma Basket Platform Core takes the high-sole further and to new heights. The essential retro design remains, from the rounded toe down to the textured Formstrip at the sides, but is given a totally new character and polished look.
