Puma Suede Bow History

The Puma Suede, or also dubbed as Clyde by sneaker insiders, had gained its popularity in the 60s when it was used as a warm-up kick by basketball superstar legend Walter 'Clyde' Frazier of the New York Knicks. Frazier asked the Puma if they can do a wider version of their basketball shoe; thus the Puma Clyde was born.

The Suede Classic from Puma was born in the time when the leather kicks reigned the market. The suede never really took off, but because of the cool, laid-back image of Mr. Frazier, the Puma Suede slowly turned as the kick of choice of b-boys and several hip-hop personalities in the 80s.

The classic Puma Suede presented an upper composed of full suede which has endured several revamping over the years. This model has been used as the base iteration for various collaborations and upgrading that effectively fused lifestyle, fashion, and high-performance look.

One face-lifted version of the Puma Suede is the Puma Suede Bow that displays an oversized satin bow on the heel of its chunky, round toe kick. This model also flaunts the signature Formstrip in silky satin that sits atop a rubber sole with grippy traction.

Additional Info

  • The thick white rubber sole has waffle-pattern tread that delivers reliable grip on various surfaces.
  • Puma used mesh inner lining for better comfort and breathability.
  • Puma branding is printed on its cushy insole.
