Who should buy the Puma Clyde All-Pro

The Puma Clyde All-Pro delivered on all aspects that matter. Because of this, it is a good pick for almost anyone who plays basketball, except for those identified in the next section.

Outdoor players and even those who just want to wear the Clyde All-Pro casually wouldn't be disappointed.

Who should NOT buy the Clyde All-Pro from Puma

Stay away from the Clyde All-Pro if you are any of the following:

  • a wide footer
  • a player who prefers forefoot cushioning
  • do not have time for breaking in their basketball shoes

Enjoy insane lightness

Touted as "lightest and most disruptive," the Clyde All-Pro made use of thin but sturdy materials that never hampered with movement. The All-Pro felt lighter than its actual weight.

The Clyde All-Pro has a durable outsole and amazing grip

Multidirectional traction patterns were etched on an outsole that's made of "high-abrasion, sticky rubber." This resulted in an "insane grip" that was comparable to the widely praised Kobe 9 from Nike. It was "so consistent...even with dust" on the court.

Because of the shape of the outsole, every step was "very very smooth." There was a slight heel curve and a prominent upward curve of the forefoot.

Be stable and supported with the Puma Clyde All-Pro

Expert reviewers agreed that the shoe was low to the ground and its base was wide, so the foot was kept stable.

A good mix of responsiveness and impact protection

The midsole tooling delivered lightweight heel cushioning that did not sacrifice court feel and bounciness. It just needed to be broken in, though.

However, the forefoot only had minimal cushioning, so pain might be felt around the toes during hard strikes.

Let your feet breathe in the Puma Clyde All-Pro

Although ventilation was "not crazy good," the shoe still didn't heat up so much because the material "kinda wicked away the moisture." The tongue was generously padded, making it "super comfortable."

It must be noted that the upper materials started out stiff, but they got better as we played more in these shoes.

This basketball shoe looked stylish enough to be paired with many outfits.
