“PUMA launches on Sept 5th an exclusive collection of PUMA Clydes designed in collaboration with hip-hop star, actor and Co-CEO of Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP) Records, Ludacris. Ludacris, who has long been a fan of style icon Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier, chose the Clyde sneaker from PUMA’s Archives because of its classic look and feel.
The Clyde x Luda collection features three PUMA Clydes in the color scheme of Black, White and Red, inspired by the Atlanta Falcons colors, and designed to coordinate. Only 300 pairs of each colorway will be sold worldwide in select sneaker boutiques (150 in the US, 150 in Europe/Asia). Each shoe features the artist’s face on the footbed and the DTP logo on the back of the heel. The white PUMA Clyde x Luda version pays respect to Ludacris’s hometown of Atlanta by featuring the city’s skyline on the heel. The toe cap is made of soft goat skin leather and the PUMA formstripe and the back quarter of the sneaker is in premium leather with an ostrich texture. Each style comes with three sets of interchangeable gold tipped laces and retails for $100. The shoes can be bought at on the west coast at Shoe Biz, Conveyor, Sportie LA, Blends, Fresh, Lions Den, and BLU 82. In Atlanta they can be bought at Walters and Wish.”
