The Magnus Carlsen x PUMA Clyde Chess sneakers are the perfect way for chess enthusiasts to express their passion for the game in a stylish and iconic way. With a design that captures the essence of chess, these sneakers are sure to become a staple in any chess player's wardrobe.

“It’s an incredible honor to be part of the first chess-inspired sneaker that PUMA has ever made. I’m glad that with the Clyde, we chose a style with a rich culture and basketball heritage. It shows off my personality, combining my love of chess with my passion for basketball”, says Carlsen.
To further showcase their chess-inspired design, the sneakers come with a woven tongue label with PUMA branding and a chess figure. The shoes also feature chess figures as lace jewels in black and white colors. Additionally, the synthetic leather sock liner boasts a chess-themed design, with the king piece showcased on the right shoe and the queen piece on the left shoe. A second set of laces is included for added customization.
