The PUMA Clyde Hardwood is the brand’s newest and latest basketball shoe, and has been worn by NBA stars like Kyle Kuzma and Danny Green on the hardwood. The shoe itself being a low top, J.Cole has debuted an unseen high top PUMA basketball shoe, reminiscent of the Clyde Hardwood, but with new features.
J.Cole, one of the greatest rappers in the game, is endorsed by PUMA, and has debuted what appears to be a high top version of the Clyde Hardwood tonight when in attendance at the Lakers vs Grizzlies game. This new PUMA model incorporates significant changes from its low top predecessor. The shoe features a new tooling and build. It appears as if the ProFoam is now exposed, and the textile upper from the lows is now a full-fledged mesh. A midfoot strap tightens around the ankle, while a new beefy heel clip is intact as well.
