Summary of 8 Expert Reviews:

The Puma Clyde Court Disrupt is Puma's first basketball sneaker in 20 years and it's a real eye-catcher! The traction is inspired by the original Clyde sneaker and takes a while to break in and could offer more consistency. The foam-based cushioning is very comfortable and provides a nice mix of responsiveness and impact protection. The most outstanding feature of this hoops shoe is the good-looking, comfortable, and very supportive knit upper. Overall, the Puma Clyde Court Disrupt is a very solid shoe that brings a breath of fresh air into the world of performance basketball shoes.

The Puma Clyde Court Disrupt wound up being one of the more fun models to play in this year (so far). Not in the Top 5 discussion but you receive solid performance and cushion for the price.

It's really impressive what Puma was able to do in their first basketball sneaker in a long time. The materials and fit are absolutely A1, the support and traction, however, could use a little tweaking.

The performance is middle of the road. They won't stay in my rotation but they might work well as a big-man shoe or as an outdoor shoe.

I am very impressed by the first hoops shoe by Puma after their comeback to basketball. The cushioning and traction could be a little better, but everything else was great!

Welcome back Puma! This is a strong shoe that is only let down by the lacking ankle support and bad traction on dusty courts.

The traction was super solid on clean courts, but on dusty courts, you will need to wipe a bit more than you would want to.

On dusty courts, you will need to wipe a lot, other than that, traction is pretty good.

The throwback design of the outsole looks nice but didn't get the job done on dusty courts. I had to wipe every time I transitioned from defense to offense.

A ton of impact protection with good court feel. I would have liked a little more feedback.

Very responsive and bouncy feel, but a lot less court feel than other shoes. The heel-to-toe transition is surprisingly good.

The cushioning reminded me of Adidas Bounce technology with a little less responsiveness and court feel. The impact protection is outstanding.

I was not expecting so much court feel from this cushioning setup. I would have loved a little more bounce-back.

The foam in the cushioning is caged by a super thick rubber which leads to a clunky heel-to-toe transition. Impact protection is decent, but the court feel is not great because you are very high-off-the-ground.

I liked the cushioning a lot! Feels like something in-between Adidas Boost and Adidas Bounce cushioning with a nice mixture of responsiveness and comfort. Unfortunately, it started bottoming out quickly.

The cushioning doesn’t feel fast, dynamic, or responsive at game speed. On the bright side - the court feel is top-notch!

The cushioning was very comfortable and plush, I would have liked a little more court feel though.

Support was solid because of the wide base, heel counter and, the supportive rubber in the midsole.

Puma sacrificed some support in exchange for comfort which will probably not work for some more explosive players.

I would not recommend them outdoors. My pair had some fraying around the toe box from only playing indoors.

The rubber is really hard, so the outdoor use should be good.

Go down half a size if you have narrow feet, stay true to size with wide or regular feet.
