Puma Basket Reset History

Originally released in 1971, the Puma Basket was meant to be the smooth leather counterpart of the then already iconic Suede. The Basket even took after the Suede’s sleek and classy silhouette.

The 1971 model has basketball at its core, but its appearance drew a crowd from an unanticipated source: the hip-hop world and culture. Since this culture had, and still continues to have, a strong hold on everyday street people, the Basket’s popularity grew quickly. Before long, the Puma Basket already secured a spot for itself in the Trainer Hall of Fame. Today, it is revered as an icon that deserves every revival that it’s getting.

The current version, the Puma Basket Reset, retains the sleek silhouette that makes it a true classic. The undeniable update will be its use of a metallic synthetic upper that is artfully covered by a mesh overlay.

Puma Basket Reset Style

With its sleek and classic look, the Puma Basket Reset is a shoe that will be a good addition to every woman’s closet collection. The model is an easy-to-match item because of its neutral colorways. If a total stand-out appeal is what’s desired, the shoes’ metallic shine and mesh overlay give just that.

Fit & Sizing

This Puma Basket Reset comes in a standard width. The ladies can choose their best fit from the sizes 5.5 to 11. Minor issues with fit is easily addressed by the use of this model’s built-in lacing system.

Notable Features

The large open holes in the mesh are both eye-catching and functional. Puma used the mesh to create a streamlined and simple style that is easy on the eye. With a metallic shine, the Basket Reset is certainly an attractive pair to have. The shoe’s ventilation is out of the question as air can freely move in and out with this type of upper construction.

Additional Info

  • The Puma Basket Reset’s tongue and collar are padded to ensure next-to-skin protection and comfort.
  • This shoe model features a lightly cushioned footbed for effective shock absorption.
  • For skin protection and comfort, the Puma Basket Reset has synthetic and textile linings.
