The Beastie Boys, a New York rap group that got started back in the 1980s, was the source of inspiration for the Puma Clyde collection -- due to the fact that they were "one of the brand’s original ambassadors."

In order to honor the group, Puma includes a selection of retro sportswear -- speaking to some of the styles that were worn by members on their album covers. As HYPEBEAST reports, an example of this includes "a combination of off-white and green, a color scheme donned by Ad-Rock on the cover of the hip-hop group’s 'Check Your Head.'"

In a addition to the Beastie Boys-inspired apparel, the Puma Clyde collection also offers a branded sneaker design in the same off-white and green colorway.
