Bottom line

Puma x Diamond merges to recreate the dated basketball profile of the Puma Basket to make it fitted for daily grinds.

The modified upper that picks up a breathable, one-piece mesh exterior is equally soft and yielding as the layer of neoprene fabric that wraps the midfoot towards the rear side. Slipping in and out of the shoe and keeping the feet secured is almost effortless with its sock-like built and use of a quick lacing system. You can expect comfort from this summer-ready sneaker which is valued at an affordable cost.

Good to know

The men’s Puma x Diamond Basket Lo sneakers are made with a ventilated, mesh upper which make them suitable for the warm months. You may slide your feet in and out of these cleatie-like structured shoes with ease. These kicks are equipped with a set of elastic bungee and toggle lacing feature that secures the fit down.

These Puma x Diamond lifestyle sneakers are offered in men’s sizes, obtainable from 7 to 14 US. Women may grab these men’s Puma x Diamond Basket Lo sneakers by purchasing a size and a half smaller than their usual size. For instance, a female buyer with an 8.5 sneaker size should ask for a size 7 in men’s.

This low-top Puma x Diamond Basket Sock Lo sneaker merges street and skate culture in one style-centric packaging. Instead of the usual suede and leather makeup, this redefined kick gets a mesh sock-like configuration hugged by a neoprene material that overlaps its sides and back.

Whether you choose the monochromatic Puma Black or the Diamond Blue that’s almost teal-like, you may blend it with neutral shaded joggers, chinos, khakis, cargos, and jeans. You may also trade your skate shoes with this when you’re off the board or done with your rounds of ollies and kick flicks as these are ready for street styling.

This crossbreed version of the Clyde and Basket is meant to give street-savvy users a comfortable styling as this kick employs a sock-like built. It eliminated the customary leather and suede coverage in place of lightweight mesh and neoprene fabrics to keep everything on its exterior down to minimal. Even the formstripe are sculpted on the overlays. Getting the feet in and out of this shoe and cinching the fit down with the quick-tying bungee cord setup makes this shoe beneficial for the active feet.

German sportswear label Puma continues to be aggressive in pushing sport and culture forward through tie-ups with some of today’s leading brands that share the same passion. In 2018, this cat-laden label teamed up with California-rooted skateboarding goods supplier Diamond Supply Co. Together they cruised the streets of US and delivered chains of releases featuring Puma’s classics which originated from the court and later gained street cred due to their appeal to skateboarders, namely the Puma Suede, Puma Clyde, and Puma Basket.

The updated Puma icons arrived in two drops. The debut collection which consisted of reimagined versions of Puma Suede and Puma Clyde surfaced in late January as part of the two labels’ spring and summer lineup for that year. Appearing with transformed arrangements yet flaunting authentic vintage aesthetic are the Diamond Supply Co x Puma Clyde and Diamond Supply Co x Puma Suede released on January 27, 2018.

The second salvo consists of a more fashion-driven, progressive spinoffs of the favorite Puma silhouettes employing advanced knits, woven Jacquard, and mesh materials. Included in the second drop are evolution designs of the icons such as the Clyde Sock Lo and ultra-modern, zip-up Abyss.

The two brands fused the elements of the Puma Clyde and Puma Basket and draped the resulting hybrid style with Diamond Supply’s teal blue resembling shade and dotted the backend with the jewel logo. The fresh, street-savvy sneaker product that’s equipped with breathable mesh is labeled as the Puma x Basket Sock Lo. Unlike the old-school b-ball legends, the Basket Sock Lo came with a cleatie-like inner structure paired to neoprene quarter panels.

  • The Puma x Diamond Basket Sock Lo was released on June 9, 2018.
  • Its molded neoprene quarters display the embossed Formstripe branding.
  • The Diamond logo appears on the heel.  
  • Other variations include the Diamond Supply Co x Puma Clyde and Diamond Supply Co x Puma Suede released on January 27, 2018; Diamond Supply Co x Puma Clyde Sock Lo and Diamond Supply Co x Puma Abyss which are dropped on June 9, 2018.
