History of Puma Clyde GCC

Initially released in 1973, The Clyde was designed specifically for New York Knicks point guard, Walter “Clyde” Frazier. Clyde wanted a shoe with a broader platform and from his idea, the first custom basketball sneaker, the PUMA Clyde was born.

Due to the popularity of The Clyde, it has gone through various iterations throughout the years. Just early this year, the Clyde “Cow Suits” model—which was inspired by Clyde Frazier’s eccentric sense of style—was released.

It had a leather tongue label, golden branding, and cow print form strips. Only 73 pairs were released as a nod to the 1973 New York Knicks championship that Frazier played a big part in.

The Clyde GCC is a premium reissue of the original with a soft dominant leather upper and a combination of eye-catching and contrasting colors. It has a rounded tip and a flexible rubber outsole. The shoe is a perfect combination of haute and heritage, blurring the boundary between sport and fashion.
