Puma Clyde Hardwood Review

Pros:
Premium leather and knit materials
Beastly traction
Cons:
Slightly heavy
Basic foam cushioning

Performance of the Puma Clyde Hardwood:

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.

The Puma Clyde Hardwood is a great shoe. It's low to the ground, responsive, and has amazing traction. The materials are nice, and they help to create a solid fit. The only thing I wished Puma did was uncage the foam a little more.

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 traction is multidirectional herringbone, and I love it. It's very tacky and really grips the court.

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.

I'm really impressed with the cushion. Impact protection becomes softer the more you play in them.

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

There is a good amount of space in the forefoot, and the shoe fits great once you tighten the laces slightly.
