PUMA x MITA Clyde

The PUMA x Mita Clyde trainer draws inspiration from Walt Frazier’s love for the paper stuff.

The PUMA Clyde was originally released way back in 1970’s as a signature sneaker for then New York Knick’s star player, Walt Frazier, who’s nickname was Clyde. The suede sneakers have since become a classic on basketball courts, projects and the streets with a strong connection to the original hip hop movement of the same decade.

This collaboration marks the second time the Japanese sneaker specialists have come together with the German sportswear brand on the Clyde silhouette. After its re-launch this summer the Clyde is now back on the sneaker addicts map with this latest re-iteration taking a completely different to approach to the traditional offerings.

Drawing inspiration from Walt Frazier’s lavish lifestyle this latest version features a dollar bill print with Frazier’s head appearing where you would usually find the likes of George Washington. The dollar bill print covers one side of the uppers whilst the other sees the orange and blue colours of the ‘Knicks’ with blue on the right and orange on the left.

The PUMA x Mita Clyde trainer launches from this coming Friday 23rd December 2016 from mita-sneakers.co.jp as well as selected stockists.
