Foot Patrol x Pro-Keds collab just came in...

 

London’s Foot Patrol takes on a true old-school classic in the Pro-Keds Royal Hi. The effortless, simple style of the Pro-Keds basketball silhouette was one of the earliest modern examples of a shoe developing a dedicated street following. The asphalt, outdoor basketball courts and nascent hip-hop culture may be the most commonly cited example of Pro-Keds’ influence, but the Royal’s timeless look transcended associations with one, specific scene.

From the countless fabric houses in the city to the world-famous Saville Row (where the term ‘bespoke’ was coined,) London is no stranger to the cloth trade. Foot Patrol’s interpretation of the Royal Hi pays tribute to this long and influential history.

The ‘Patchwork’ Royal Hi brings together a mix of different patterns, colors, and textiles to give this basketball court classic an offhandedly-elegant makeover. While the Patchwork design serves as a tribute to the creative energies of London’s clothiers, but the diversity of materials and stitched together look also harken back to the Royal’s enduring popularity through so many places and through so much time.

New Puma Clyde Away just arrived...

 

For such a basic and iconic shoe, the Puma Clyde/Suede/State has been the subject of some historical confusion regarding its name. The Suede is the shoe’s original moniker. The import models sent to Europe were given the state designation. The ‘Clyde’ comes in thanks to 1970s NBA legend Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier. The basic Suede was customized to Frazier’s specifications, his signature was affixed to the side of the shoe, and the Clyde was born.

 

The confusion around this shoe’s name is somewhat ironic, given that there was no mistaking Clyde on or off the court. Frazier’s sense of style set him apart even by the standards of the 1970s. His penchant for wearing wide brimmed hats is what earned him the nickname Clyde, after Bonnie and Clyde, in the first place.

 

For the first time in five years, Puma is bringing the Clyde back to store shelves.

 

Available in true blue/white and white/black colorways, the Home and Away Clyde combines the timeless, athletic style of the hardwood with Walt Frazier’s impeccable fashion sense. The old-school looks are presented here in premium materials, with Italian construction to commemorate this legend’s return.

This is not correct. Puma Clydes were only suede. The name Clyde did not appear on the leather versions. The leather (non-suede) models were called Puma Basket. I would never buy that black on white leather model with the word "Clyde" written on it. And to make matters worse, it is a cursive "Clyde" and not the original all caps block letters. Horrible.
