For Autumn-Winter’16, the Clyde and Suede Mid are getting a dose of street style attitude after teaming up with New York City son, world-renowned DJ and Clyde historian, Bobbito Garcia. PUMA found the perfect partner in Bobbito to tell the story of playground basketball and street culture. Working on two true classic PUMA shoes - the Clyde and the Suede Mid, the end result is a clean cut, sublime aesthetic that is both court savvy and stylish.
Bobbito Garcia is the critically acclaimed author of ‘Where’d You Get Those? New York City’s Sneaker Culture: 1960- 1987’. The Suede Mid takes inspiration from the book and Garcia’s basketball experiences with a certain gold touch etched on the mid upper when many people on the block would ask, “Where’d you get those?”
Typical outdoor b-ball slang has been applied to the innersole and upper quarter of the Clyde, continuing this theme.
The PUMA x Bobbito collaboration is due for release on at:
