Puma Basket Classic Winterized History

The Puma Basket Classic Winterized traces its roots to a Puma shoe model that was released in 1971. The Puma Basket was meant to be the full-grain leather counterpart of 1968’s Puma Suede, the model whose silhouette the Basket took after.

As the name implies, Puma Basket was originally targeted at basketball players. However, its sleek and clean look made a surprising appeal to the hip-hop crowd, which eventually helped secure for the Puma Basket a spot in the Trainer Hall of Fame as it became an icon in its own right.

The current version retains the form of the Puma Basket, but borrows the suede from the Basket’s predecessor and silhouette inspiration. More durable rubber outsoles and rugged laces complete it with a winterized appeal.

Additional Info

  • The Puma Basket Classic Winterized features an embossed Formstrip on both sides of each shoe.
  • The shoes’ lining is made of a combination of smooth leather and fabric, which contribute to the comfortable warmth that many appreciate during winter.
