The Puma Basket Platform Glitter is a glittered upgrade to the Puma’s classic Basket sneakers. It shadows the Basket’s low-top profile with a lace-up fastening system, but with a platform sole for added height and improved stability. It allows wearers non-restrictive foot movement while keeping the foot secure and supported. The laces are adjustable, which can be loosened or tightened for a customized fit.
Boost up your style game and strut a pair of the Puma Basket Platform Glitter low-tops for a bit of sparkle and shine (and added height!). The entire upper is coated with glitter in either silver or gold, but just the right amount to draw attention and make your outfit pop. White laces and thick soles complete the look for that classic style and must-have comfort.
The Puma Basket Platform Glitter is a fresh update to Puma’s basketball-inspired Basket silhouette. The classic Basket style and features are retained from the signature Puma brandings, synthetic leather upper, lace-up closure, and overall construction.
However, this upgrade made the Basket more feminine with its added platform sole. Furthermore, with this iteration, the synthetic leather upper is no ordinary anymore. It received a shiny update and coated with glitters (gold or silver) all throughout.
