When it comes to Puma, the Puma Clyde is right up there with the Puma Suede when it comes to the most classic Puma silhouette of all time. A true icon from the PUMA archive, the Puma Clyde embodies fashion, culture, and basketball heritage with confidence and flair, just like its namesake, Walt “Clyde” Frazier.
Back in the ’70s, basketball’s Walt “Clyde” Frazier made a name for himself on and off the court with his bold moves and signature colorful style. In 1973 when Clyde asked for a custom-made pair of Suedes, PUMA reconfigured the original silhouette, made it lighter and wider, stamped his moniker on the side – and the PUMA Clyde was born. Today, 50 years later, the Clyde lives up to its namesake by embodying fashion, culture, and basketball heritage with confidence and flair. With all that being said, the Puma Clyde celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. To celebrate the big 5-0, Puma is set to drop this Puma Clyde OG 50th Anniversary Pack.
The Puma Clyde OG 50th Anniversary Pack consists of three retro suede colorways to choose from. Available in Blue, Red and Green, the Clyde OG stays true to the classic as they come dressed in full suede uppers, gold foiled and debossed PUMA Clyde branding on quarter, and a suede tongue with a PUMA woven label.
The Puma Clyde OG 50th Anniversary Pack retails for $110 and is set to drop on March 11th on PUMA.com, the PUMA mobile app, at the PUMA NYC Flagship store and select retailers worldwide.
