At what point along the way does an extended collaboration become a full-on merger? We’ve come to expect ongoing team efforts from individual designers in concert with sneaker brands (think adidas Originals by Originals), but the connection between West Coast streetwear beheamoths UNDFTD and Puma has gone beyond any co-branded efforts on record. Most recent high profile Puma Clydes have carried the Five Strikes logo, something of a mathematical necessity when you consider that this is now the tenth pack of UNDFTD Clydes in under a year. This new set goes with pastel ballistic nylon uppers, tonal suede overlays and white leather Formstripes, a formula slightly altered on the RS hightop that uses a grey or purple stripe depending on the rest of its body. Check out all six pairs after the jump and look for these at select Puma stores like SNKRS.
