PUMA recently made some major announcements in regards to the relaunching of their Basketball division. The German sneaker empire revealed that hip-hop mogul and cultural icon, Jay Z, now holds the title of Creative Director for the brand. Not to mention, the athletic apparel company signed some of the most elite talent coming out of the 2018 NBA Draft including Marvin Bagley III, Michael Porter Jr., Zhaire Smith, and DeAndre Ayton. And now, PUMA Basketball has unveiled their performance sneaker reintroduction to the world in the form of the PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt.
The PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt takes many design elements from the PUMA Clyde worn by the legendary basketball phenom in Walt Frasier. The brand new silhouette features a bright red, perforated knit-woven base constructed to allow maximum maneuverability, a form-fitting sock-esque ankle collar comes in a highlighter yellow hue while a stabilizing synthetic heel counter provides its wearers with much-needed support.
The sneaker also features a uniquely complex lacing system, black embroidered PUMA logo stripes while foam cushioning technology is cased in the sneaker’s translucent sole unit and closed out with the year ‘1973’ embroidered at the heel of the sneaker.
For those of you who might be on the fence about the overall aesthetic appeal of the kicks, a more simplistic black and white colorway was recently unveiled which could possibly sway your opinion on the performance silhouette. And for those of you who believe joints are a must cop, you’ll be able to get your hands on a pair of PUMA Clyde Court Disrupts right before the NBA season kicks off come October 1st.
