The Puma 'Clyde' model was reportedly named after "New York Knicks icon Walt "Clyde" Frazier" originally -- however now the brand is back with a new remodel, making for a pair of luxurious sneakers that honor the time it was first popular.

According to HYPEBEAST, the simple silhouette was a prominent footwear staple for many during the 1980s, especially in the city's hip hop scene. For the updated release, the luxurious sneakers are covered in tanned ostrich leather.

The uppers are given some variance with the inclusion of slight rises in the material and careful stitching to mark Puma's branding. In addition to this, the white laces are finished off with gold tips and the sole is colored the same tone of cream to match.
