It is not surprising that many WWE fans also happen to be avid sneakerheads, considering that most of their favorite wrestlers are usually laced up in popular sneakers while performing. Moreover, WWE fans who particularly happen to love Puma sneakers will be quite delighted to learn that Footlocker, Puma and WWE are collaborating for Wrestlemania 33, which is WWE’s biggest pay-per-view of the year. Peter Rosenberg, a frequent guest WWE commentator and Hot 97 radio host, shared a photo on his Instagram account (@rosenbergradio) a week or so ago, hinting at this upcoming collaboration. This collaboration will reportedly include colorways of the Puma Blaze of Glory, Clyde and Suede.
A special capsule that revolves around the Clyde is a part of this larger WWE x Puma x Foot Locker collection. All of the Clyde colorways from this capsule may appear identical, but it is the subtle features of the iterations like their custom laces and insoles that make the stand out from the others. The custom insoles of each Clyde iteration was designed Alexander John and they feature some very iconic WWE legends, such as Andre The Giant, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Stone Cold, the Undertaker and several others. Even the custom laces feature the wrestler’s names.
Additionally, WWE branding can be spotted on the heels, and Gold-colored branding is visible over the sides of the heels, the side panels and the tongues. One thing that nearly all of these colorways have in common is the fact that they all have clean White-colored uppers. The only exception is Undertake-inspired version, which understandably has ominous-looking Black-colored uppers and it will actually be contained in a special shoe box that will be shaped like a casket.
Apart from the Undertaker version, all of the Puma Clyde colorways from the WWE x Puma x Foot Locker are scheduled to make their retail debut on April Fool’s Day, i.e. April 1st. The Undertaker iteration is actually a special edition sneaker so it will retail at a price of $499 rather than $199 and will hit the shelves exclusively at Foot Locker’s stores in Orlando. This year’s Wrestlemania is taking place in Orlando. Additionally, exclusive t-shirts that are limited editions will be a part of this capsule too, which will retail at a price of $44.99.
