Puma is still relatively new back in the basketball shoe game, but the Clyde Hardwood is a hit!
The traction is great (and squeaky) on clean courts and with an occasional wipe, you're good to go on dusty courts too.
The ProFoam cushioning feels rather basic and minimal but gets softer after a while. Overall the setup is more catered to players looking for court feel and response.
The genuine leather in the heel and the textiles and synthetics in the forefoot are soft, comfortable, and feel very premium.
The support is excellent thanks to a wide and flat base and heavy caging on the lateral side.
Overall, the Puma Clyde Hardwood is a great mix of old-school leather and modern performance with beastly traction and decent cushioning.
