Puma Basket Classic Metal Style

The Basket Classic Metal cannot go unnoticed in its bold new look. The upper is composed of smooth synthetic leather, decorated with a geometric metallic print, reminiscent of a soccer jersey. Adding a slight texture on the printed sneaker is a perforated textile Formstripe logo.

Despite releasing in grayscale colorways—black and white, the style of these remain to stand out because of its metallic gold and silver embellishments. Because of this, letting the sneaker stand out by pairing it with a simple outfit like a shirt and jeans is recommended.

Notable Features

One of the most evident changes in these low-top sneakers is its bold, lustrous print, opposite from the initial design of the Basket Classics. Additionally, despite having minimal branding, these sneakers placed an interesting tweak on the Puma Formstripe and PUMA Cat logo, using a perforated woven textile. It is seated on a rubber outsole with a ribbed toe bumper that adds toe protection.

Puma Basket Classic Metal History

The Puma Basket, which was released in 1968,was initially intended as a basketball warm-up shoe. It sported a leather upper with the iconic Puma logo on the vamp of the shoe. Even after five decades, the Basket Classics remain to be relevant.

Over the years, the sneaker got different renditions. More so it transcended from being a pre-game shoe to being a choice of footwear by the hip-hop community to being a staple on the pop culture world. One of the variations of the Baskets is the Puma Basket Classic Metal.
