The Puma Basket Classic was initially launched in 1968. At that time, it was released as the leather counterpart of the iconic Clyde shoe. Originally, this shoe was created to use inside the basketball court.

But as time passed by, it emerged into a lifestyle sneaker that is loved by different generations. In fact, it was reinvented and reissued several times in different materials, colorways, and styles. Injecting a platform or elevated midsole to the Basket silhouette is one of the awesome styles ever imagined. 

This imagination gave birth to the Puma Basket Platform shoe. It has a minimalist leather upper that sits atop a thick sole. But it did not stop there. Several other iterations draw inspiration from the elevated midsole. One of which is the Puma Basket Platform Luxe.
