Puma Match Lo Basic Sports Style

While the original Match was initially geared as a tennis shoe, the Match Lo Basic Sports is stylish enough to be worn off the court and has indeed made lots of appearances on the fashion scene. The shoe is so versatile that it can be worn—and in fact go well with—harem pants and rolled up denim as well as tight, cropped, and boyfriend jeans.

Notable Features

The shoe’s simple and classic look is one of its most notable features. The premium leather upper and suede overlays give it an understated elegance. Perforations in the shoe’s upper enhance breathability while a padded collar provides comfort.

Puma Match Lo Basic Sports History

This shoe comes from a distinguished athletic wear company with 69 years of quality shoemaking expertise and innovation behind them. The Match Lo Basic Sports is an iteration of a classic tennis shoe—the Match, known for its superior quality and performance-enhancing features. The Match was released in the 1970s and was Puma’s answer to Adidas’ Stan Smith. It had a clean and slim silhouette and featured a sleek leather upper.

The Match Lo Basic Sports builds on the original with its distinct swagger brought on by the premium leather upper and perf detailing. It has supportive suede overlays, padded collar for cushioning and comfort, and a lace-up closure for a comfortable fit. It exudes a definite stylish appeal that would look good both on- and off-court.
