PUMA South Africa
PUMA Basket Crush Influencer campaign


Use an influencer marketing campaign to highlight the arrival of the PUMA Basket Crush styles in the lead up to Valentine’s Day. Recreate the ‘heart’ as seen on the top of the Basket Crush shoes, together with your bestie/ twin.


Splash negotiated paid partnerships with four pairs of local Instagram influencers. We researched and selected the most relevant SA twins or besties of Instagram. We negotiated for them to create and post unique content that showcased the PUMA Basket Crush styles in the lead up to the product drop in South Africa.

Splash also seeded the footwear style to a further three influencers.

The influencer campaign was also support by an editorial pitch to media.
