PUMA has unveiled two capsule collections inspired by the David T. Howard School in Atlanta Georgia, in honour of Black History Month in the USA. The school, founded in 1923 by a former slave, became a game changer in education, playing a significant role in the civil rights movement and producing prominent alumni including basketball and PUMA legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier.
The first drop includes two premium iterations of the iconic PUMA Clyde. The Clyde Bball has a leather textured upper, inspired by an actual basketball design, and the gold eyelets are a nod to Clyde’s basketball trophies. While the Clyde Wool bears the school’s colours of blue and gold and features a mix of wool and chenille to mimic the school jackets.
