Size and fit

The Puma Basket Platform Glitter is a glittered upgrade to the Puma’s classic Basket sneakers. It shadows the Basket’s low-top profile with a lace-up fastening system, but with a platform sole for added height and improved stability. It allows wearers non-restrictive foot movement while keeping the foot secure and supported. The laces are adjustable, which can be loosened or tightened for a customized fit.

Puma Basket Platform Glitter Style

Boost up your style game and strut a pair of the Puma Basket Platform Glitter low-tops for a bit of sparkle and shine (and added height!). The entire upper is coated with glitter in either silver or gold, but just the right amount to draw attention and make your outfit pop. White laces and thick soles complete the look for that classic style and must-have comfort.

Notable Features

The Puma Basket Platform Glitter is a fresh update to Puma’s basketball-inspired Basket silhouette. The classic Basket style and features are retained from the signature Puma brandings, synthetic leather upper, lace-up closure, and overall construction.

However, this upgrade made the Basket more feminine with its added platform sole. Furthermore, with this iteration, the synthetic leather upper is no ordinary anymore. It received a shiny update and coated with glitters (gold or silver) all throughout.

Puma Basket Platform Glitter History

Puma’s platform sneaker catalog gets aggressively updated with new designs. One of the most recent add-on is the lustrous Puma Basket Platform Glitter. Released in 2017 just in time for the holiday festivities is the Puma Basket Platform Glitter along with two other glittered iterations of the classic Basket silhouette from Puma – the Puma Basket Strap Glitter ($80) in gold and silver colorways; and the Puma Basket Heart Glitter ($90) in white/gold and black/silver colorways.

The Puma Basket Platform Glitter released in two colorways as well, which are Gold and Silver, for $110 per pair. It features a synthetic leather upper that is coated in glitters all over, white cotton laces in a traditional lace-up closure, and a white, thick, and textured platform sole.

The Puma Basket is one of the brand's most iconic sneakers that made its debut in 1968 as a performance hoop shoe. 2018 marks its 50th anniversary.
