The PUMA Clyde turns 50 this year, but that hasn't stopped the PUMA Suede on which Walt Frazier's silhouette is based from taking on special sets.
To welcome spring, the 1968 classic emerged in an “American Beauty” tonal color palette courtesy of Rhuigi Villaseñor. Inspired by the breakdancing era of the 1980s, the sneaker features flat, chunky laces. High-quality suede lands on the upper, featuring the aforementioned rosy hue. PUMA branding to the lateral side opts for a shimmering gold finish, while standard stripes favor a cream hue; the “Pristine” color also lands on the heel and sole. The traditional branding on the spines is replaced with '19' and '91', although neither party involved shared a backstory.
