Notable Features

Ready your eye and fall in love with the cute Puma Basket Crush. It features a forming heart shape when feet are put together. It is in red synthetic leather that is asymmetrically placed beside the lacing system, which can draw attention from the crowd. 

This concept of heart design shows that when feet are not together, it breaks the heart. This is relatively true for people who are in love then mishaps happen. When they break up, so their hearts break too.

Puma Basket Crush History

The Puma Basket was initially released in 1968. It was the leather counterpart of the Clyde shoe at that time. At first, it was purposely created and designed for basketball use. Later on, this silhouette has been reinterpreted several times in a variety of colorways and styles. 

Puma focuses on craftsmanship, functionality, and premium style. Pushing the boundaries of fashion, it has reconfigured iconic designs such as the Puma Basket, creating fresh new silhouettes like the low-top Basket Crush.

The Puma Basket Crush has a minimalist yet unique and fashionable red and white upper that can turn heads around. It sits atop a durable rubber outsole, which can deliver excellent traction.
