Rupture Rapture


Puma just announced that the company has reinvested itself in basketball, and as proof revealed a new performance shoe, the Clyde Court Disrupt, and signed a number of NBA players, Raptors’ Danny Green among them. The news should have caused us to mull over Puma’s reentry into the sport, but the sad fact was we couldn’t get past the new shoe’s name.

Did he say Deerupt?

No. Disrupt!

Once that unfortunate connection was made – between the adidas Deerupt and Puma Disrupt – we were like a dog with a bone. The two sneakers have absolutely nothing in common – other than a shaky similarity in their names –  so it made perfect sense to us that we should introduce the new Puma by placing it side-by-side with the Deerupt.

“With its aggressive colorway and sleek silhouette, the Clyde Court Disrupt embodies the spirit and style set down by Walt Clyde Frazier. It’s our step back onto the court and our stamp on culture. We’ll take inspiration from the past, but we won’t be tied down by it. The future of the game is a fusion of performance and style, and the moves we make off the court have to be as impactful as the ones we make on it. We’ll make those moves in the Clyde Court Disrupt. Don’t flinch.”“A packable modern running style wrapped in a web overlay. Lightweight and collapsible, the Deerupt features a stretchy mesh that hugs the foot. Flexible netting wraps the upper and midsole to provide light compression for snug comfort.”
