When it comes to sneaker releases, Black Friday is already one of the busiest days of the year, and now Puma’s sneaking in at the final hour with a head-turning rendition of one of its most iconic shoes.

Just a few months removed from September’s “Wraith” pack release, the Puma Clyde is back with a two-sneaker set known as the “Suits” pack. This group is inspired by basketball great Walt “Clyde” Frazier’s unmistakable fashion sense, specifically his extravagant suits — which are so famous, they even have their own Instagram page.

According to Puma, the “Suits” pack includes colorways covered in zebra and cow-printed leathers as a nod to Frazier’s custom designer suits and fur coats. Along with the spotted and striped patterns, these Puma Clydes also feature a Clyde logo and lace tips in metallic gold.
