An updated take on one of their classic low-top basketball silhouettes, the PUMA Basket Platform is a feminine rework of the 1968 court shoe. This time around a duo of exotic faux-animal skins have been applied to both black and tan colourways, bringing together the worlds of fashion and vintage sportswear.
We’ve seen a surge in popularity for these new hybrids in the past year thanks in part to Rihanna’s successful FENTY Creeper range together with PUMA. These new experiments take the classic low-profile of the Basket and combine it with the type of midsole typically seen on a Brothel Creeper, a much heavier elevated platform that accentuates the original. For this latest collection PUMA have created a pairing of tonal colourways that utilise a faux reptile skin material across the base layer of the upper. Brushed with gold along the edges of each scale, branding comes in the form of a tonal suede formstripe running up each side.
Both colourways of the womens PUMA Basket Platform ‘Exotic’ will be available online and in our size? for women Manchester store, as well as Amsterdam, Carnaby St., Harrods, Copenhagen, Paris and Madrid on Wednesday 15th February, priced at £80.
