Returning after five years, the PUMA Clyde has been inspired by a milestone in the brand’s rich sporting history and modernized through exciting new colourways and textures. This icon is a staple for any true sneakerhead. And they made some quite special editions as well, called Clyde OG Flag.
Originally created in 1973, the PUMA Clyde quickly became the sports sneaker of the 70s. Walt Frazier, whose quick hands on defense combined with his calm, cool, and collected demeanor earned him the nickname “Clyde”, asked for a custom-made pair of PUMA Suede that were reconfigured to suit his legendary unique style, making him the first player in history to have a sneaker named after them. He describes the shoe as ‘a timeless design’ enabling it to remain a cult sneaker and return to the streets after five years.
The show It’s maintained a strong presence in pop culture in the decades to come, being adopted as sneaker of choice by the hip hop stars, skateboarders, B-boys and musicians leading the punk movement of the 90s. You can get your hands on the special red and yellow Clyde OG Flag, which PUMA describes as an icon which is a staple for any true sneakerhead, in PUMA stores, on their website, and through select lifestyle retailers around the world, beginning in July.
