He was the perfect mix of performance and style. On the court, Clyde was dominant – seven-time allstar, two-time champion, named one of the 50 greatest players in league history. Off the court, he was a fashion renegade. He redefined street style with wide-brimmed hats, custom suits and PUMAs. He was the definition of cool – a pillar of confidence and creativity.

In 1973 PUMA customised a shoe for Walt Frazer, and the world’s first signature basketball shoe the Clyde was born. Built on performance and style, it immediately became a mainstay on the court and on the street. As a statement shoe, it was part of the uniform for cultural artists – DJs, b-boys, musicians and graffiti artists. The colors, the formstrip and the gold signature on the side of every shoe were the symbols of credibility.

To celebrate this iconic silhouette Footasylum are releasing a collection of exclusive colour ways in a brilliant summery canvas make up over the Easter weekend.
