PUMA have announced the re-release of their iconic Clyde silhouette.
Returning after a five year break, the PUMA Clyde has been inspired by a milestone in the brand’s rich sporting history and modernised through exciting new colour-ways and textures.
The story of the PUMA Clyde began when basketball’s Walt “Clyde” Frazier asked for a custom-made pair of PUMA Suede that were then reconfigured to suit his legendary unique style, making him the first player in history to have a sneaker named after them. His quick hands on defence combined with his calm, cool, and collected demeanour paired with his smooth off-court style earned him the nickname "Clyde”.
This season sees the PUMA Clyde released in a choice of brand new colour-ways, fabrications, prints and collaborations. Beginning with the PUMA Clyde Home & Away pack that plays special attention to basketball heritage with only 759 pairs made to honour the 759 games Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier played for the New York Knicks.
Other offerings include a red with contrasting white and matte black suede with royal blue contrast. Also, PUMA pay tribute to Walt ‘Clyde Fraziers notoriously flamboyant style comes iterations finished in with snakeskin leather, pony-skin, zebra and cheetah prints. All finished with a PUMA logo and ‘Clyde’ signature in gold foil imprint. PUMA welcomes the legacy of Clyde back, a style that remains one of PUMA’s most epic sports-inspired styles that oozes with streetwise swagger and guarantees enduring appeal for generations on.
