In 1968, the original PUMA Basket was launched as a high top, leather basketball shoe. This style was one of several PUMA warm-up shoes to declare a new era on the basketball court. It was loved by pros because, once appropriately broken-in, it conformed to the foot and was a metaphorical slam dunk when teamed with a one-piece rubber cupsole with cushioned footbed. The Basket made its way through the courts and eventually found its way to the streets- quickly securing itself as a streetstyle icon. Basket Classic is a low top version of the original Basket with the same classic good looks.
