The release of Puma's Basket CC was a major event in the sneaker-world as Color Changing was a new concept in the shoe industry. People who grew up in the 1980's and early 1990's will remember the Hypercolor T-shirts that changed color with heat and were popular during that time. Puma has applied the same concept to their Basket shoes, using special material that responds to the heat of your foot and the environment. To compliment the color-changing process Puma chose a leather upper that resembles chameleon skin with a bumpy, yet smooth surface. The bright green contrasting (found with the laces, stitching and sole) enhance the chameleon-like nature of the shoe.

Color changes

Below zero degrees the leather is a solid black and moves to brown with green tinges to dark green to dark blue to a deep purple.

The video below shows the color changes although it's hard to see the subtle differences because of the low resolution.

This is the coolest sneaker. Blowing out all over the world. I know because I invented the material. My company, Sommers Plastics, sells it to Puma. In development for over three years, the only bad thing was this was a limited run for Autumn '07 and the factories produced very few kids' sizes. We are currently sampling Puma with some very cool new generation grains and colors with this thermochromatic, color-change effect. They are running it for Spring 08
