PUMA x Clyde CNY Pack
17.01.2017 | PUMA
At the end of the month, the Chinese New Year will officially get underway. 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, a critical one. The Chinese New Year special edition Clyde sneaker will be ushering in the annual spring festival in celebration of the Lunar New Year.
We’ve refreshed the kicks named after one of our cockiest ballers, Basketball legend Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier. Adding another collectable style for sneaker aficionados worldwide with the limited edition drop. This special Clyde iteration takes inspiration from the fine feathered bird.
Long heralded as one of the first signature sneakers in basketball, the Clyde emerges here in lush noir coated in sleek premium black leather upper, a crisp white outsole, stand-out features such as the lustrous Formstripe – to mimic the Rooster’s unique feathers, the tenth Chinese zodiac. Adding even more to the celebratory theme Gold Mandarin characters on each respective heel are embossed with gold, completing the look are the Gold hits on the branding and lace tips, reference to Frazier’s taste for his notoriously flagrant personal dress.
These festive kicks drop 19.01.17 at PUMA SELECT Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein, Johannesburg retailing at R2 299.
