PUMA & Packer Shoes have come together to pay tribute to Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s signature flamboyant style by way of a ‘Cow Suits Pack’. Clyde’s love for animal prints carries on today through his custom tailored suits which he is seen wearing frequently on air for Knicks home games and thats exactly where Packer and PUMA channeled this latest rendition of the Clyde.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to pay tribute to Clyde in our own special way. Aside from being a bona fide New York City legend both on and off the court, he is also a rare example of someone who can walk into a room wearing a red or brown cow print suit and have no one bat an eyelash. That unwavering swagger and confidence in all he does is something we wanted to bring to life through our special renditions of his iconic signature model” – Mike Packer.
Dropping in two tonal color ways -Black & Red, both are constructed with plush suede uppers and complimented with a faux fur cow print Formstripe inspired by two of Clydes most iconic suits. The cow print appears again on the sicklier with Packer branding in a gold print. A premiumm leather tongue label, milky white outsole and gold branding throughout put the final touches on this top notch collaboration.
The blue color way is a special friends and family pair that will drop exclusively at Packer in very limited numbers. All three color way’s will release exclusively at Packer both in store and online Friday March 31st followed by a global release in selected stores on April 7th
