PUMA really nailed it with the Clyde Hardwood. A nice blend of old school leather and modern performance with beastly traction and decent cushioning.

On every other court, I played on I never had to wipe the soles at all.

The bite on a clean court is amazing and stops on a dime with a nice little squeak. Picks up dust easily, but a quick wipe and you're good to go!

The cushioning is not horrible but it's as basic as it gets. ProFoam is a standard foam that offers a responsive ride that’s low to the ground.

Once the cushioning is broken in the foam is actually pretty soft even though the rubber is heavily caged. If you like a responsive and minimal cushioning setup, this is a great choice.

Textiles and synthetics in the forefoot and old-school genuine leather from the midfoot to the heel. I absolutely love the material setup.

The fully knitted material in the front is really soft and feels incredible. The leather and suede in the heel feel very premium.

The flat base and extensive TPU midsole cage provide all the stability and support you need.

The caging on the lateral side contains your feet nicely and the wide base gives you a ton of stability.
