Puma hits heights with iconic PG Clyde

Puma Golf has unveiled its PG Clyde – a nod to the brand’s iconic Clyde shoe – as part of its SS13 footwear collection.

The footwear, says Puma, is appropriate for a wide range of golfers from young up-and-comers to those who remember wearing the Clyde when it first gained notoriety back in the ‘70s. It can also be worn on and off the greens.

Originally designed as a basketball shoe and named after seven-time all-star Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier, Puma says its heritage shoe combines the perfect mix of performance and style.

The definition of cool, Frazier was known as a style maverick, often rocking wide-brimmed hats and custom suits, but he always finished off his look with a pair of PUMA Clyde’s. 

Today, Puma is taking the Clyde to new heights by equipping it for the course, with a soft full grain leather upper, complete with one-year waterproofing, that provides a stylish yet protective exterior.

The shoe boasts EverFoam cushioning - a special slow recovery foam strategically positioned for a fit that adjusts to the unique contour in the heel – and Evertrack technology, meaning the shoe is constructed with long lasting, high abrasion resistant rubber in the shoe’s outsole areas, preventing strong wear off.

A decoupled heel also combines with flex grooves for a smooth first impact and roll off from heel to toe and S2QuillTec spikes and deep flex grooves provide comfort, traction and flexibility. And of course, the shoe features the famous Clyde signature on the side.

The footwear will be available in black/white (top) and white/black (above) from November 15 at RRP £65.
