PUMA Support Black History Month With The Clyde
PUMA have announced the release of a capsule collection in honour of Black History Month, continuing the work they do with the David T. Howard School Alumni Association and Atlanta Public Schools to fund community growth in Atlanta.
The first drop reworks the PUMA Clyde, the silhouette of basketball and PUMA legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier who studied at David T. Howard School, famous for its significant role in the civil rights movement. The Clyde BBall silhouette takes inspiration from basketballs through a textured leather upper, with gold eyelets nodding to Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s many basketball trophies. The Clyde Wool takes inspiration from the David T. Howard School itself featuring an upper made from wool and chenille as high school jackets do, as well as coming in the school’s colours, blue and gold.
The second drop in the collection features a wider range of apparel including the Clyde T7 Jacket and Pant and assorted T-Shirts, again in the school’s blue and gold colours. The Sky II Hi is also basketball inspired, featuring a blue leather upper and dual lacing. A ‘his and hers’ Clyde is the final instalment in the collection, featuring a white leather upper, blue leather formstripe and the David T. Howard School emblem on the tongue.
The Clyde BBall and Clyde Wool both drop on 13th January, with the following pieces releasing on 2nd February over at PUMA.
