Puma Clyde Script History

In the early 70s, Puma decided to give Walt Frazier, a professional basketball player at that time, a pair of Puma Suedes. Walt Frazier asked if he could alter the shoe to adapt to the demands of playing on the court and Puma agreed. Walt, also known as “Clyde,” designed the shoe to be lighter, have more cushioning, and a wider toebox for comfort while playing. Puma then decided to launch the re-configured shoe in 1973 and named it after Walt. Hence, the Puma Clyde was born.

In the 80s, thanks to Walt’s stylish demeanor, the Puma Clyde became popular amongst the youth, especially within the hip-hop and skate subcultures. It has lasted several eras and proved to still be relevant even to this day.

It has since been viewed as a stylishly classic canvas in which a lot of designers and brands were encouraged to put their own interpretation on the shoe. One of these iterations is the Puma Clyde Script; it retains its predecessor’s sporty essence but now boasts of a sleeker look and different materials. The name is said to stem from the use of cursive writing for the shoe’s branding seen on the side of the shoe. It is available in different colors.
