Puma Clyde Core Foil History

The Puma Clyde is undeniably one of the most iconic lifestyle sneakers ever created. It has left a mark in the sneaker community not only for its classic and stylish look but also because of the rich history behind its inception.

Originally a basketball shoe, the Puma Clyde came to the spotlight when New York Knicks basketball superstar Walt "Clyde" Frazier requested Puma for a lighter and wider version of the Puma Suede that he could use on the court.

The Puma Clyde has come a long way since it was initially released in 1973. With the help of Frazier's endorsement, it gained popularity as a basketball shoe, but it eventually became a familiar name as well in the skate community and hip-hop subculture.

One of the latest iterations of the iconic Clyde is the Puma Clyde Core Foil. In this shoe, the original silhouette received a fresh and modern upgrade with the introduction of metallic foil detailing on the brandings and shoelace tips.
