A Close Look at the ​Puma Uproar Hybrid Court

I’ve got a pair of ​Puma Uproar Hybrid Court by chance and after some testing, I feel it necessary to demonstrate you some more details about it.


In terms of the shoe’s appearance, it is quite special for my money. And since this kind of colorway is few and far between, it is striking and worth your purchasing for both playing and daily wearing. So as to pay tribute to the Charlotte All-Star Game, two different colors are used in the shoes. In the midsole, it also uses a gradient color. From my point of view, it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, thus making it not only particularly popular among we fans, but among other people of all ages.


For the shoe box, it is the regular pattern, which is the same as that of the Puma Clyde Court Disrupt (as is shown below).

If you take  a closer look at it, you will find that the combination of technology and tradition in the shoe is beyond our imagination. So some may observe that “I am astonished at such design” or “The combination is such that a large number of consumers are attracted and so am I.”

As you can see, there is a prominent mixture of textiles and synthetic leathers in the shoe. If you chance to be in for such combination ,then it would be your next target of purchase. But what good does it bring to the wearer? During my tests, I felt this setting allowed for less break-in time while still containing the foot at key areas and stress zones. But this does not mean that it doesn’t need any break-in time, it is still required. Some people even remarked that the shoes as a whole gave me a feeling of “old school”. Well, it just depends.


In the heel part, Puma’s HYBRID technology and TPU are used. But many a buyers commented that “the midsole doesn’t feel like IGNITE ” or “it’s much more firm with less rebound/energy return under-foot than any of the previous iterations of IGNITE”. As for the TPU , it covers a lager area in the heel but comparatively narrower on the sides. A bit hard as the cushion is, the court feel is pretty good. Therefore, it is of great benefit for heavier players.


In the forefoot, the mesh is made for ventilation. Hence, there is no point worrying about any limits in hot summer days. The lace also extends to the heel, making up for increasing overall comfort.


The material used on the midsole cushion are HYBRID, NRGY and IGNITE. It is certain that this setup will be a highlight. Besides, you can expect a full support  from the shoe. To tell you the truth, I had not intended to receive a full support in all directions. However, the outcome is far from satisfying. It just turned out to be super nice! At least for me, hardly ever did I run into any slippy and other problems.


Honestly speaking, for all its outstanding appearance and unique colorway, there is nothing appealing left. If anything, it must be the traction. When it comes  to the grip, what surges into my mind is that “it is super fantastic!” Not only is the blade traction awesome, but it also offers the wearer a prominent grip .  It may not be leaps and bounds better than the traction pattern found on the Clyde Court, but I bet it is more reliable on all kinds of courts . Made of rubber, on the other hand , the outsole can not last very long and may wear out in a short time if it is frequently used in rough floors. For me, this ​Puma Uproar Hybrid Court has become, as it were,  one of the necessities of my life.



As a rule, most newly released shoes sells out quickly. Only several days after the launch, the ​Puma Uproar Hybrid Court has, beyond question, gained much popularity. But making allowance for the price, many people are prone to turn their backs away decisively. Well, I won’t recommend it for anyone for the fact just stays there : The ​Puma Uproar Hybrid Court will turn out to be a reliable companion in the light of the settings mentioned before.

PUMA CLYDE COURT Performance Review

As a sneaker fan, I am most familiar with the famous brands such as Nike, Adidas and so on. As for the brand, Puma, surely, there are few people know of it. In the past few decades, it was the Nike, Adidas or any other brands that occupied the basketball field while Puma seemed to be so modest because its models were just countable with fingers. So it is no wonder that it is unknown for people. But, this time, it crops up and brings us a big surprise. After years’ accumulation of experience, it finally brings us this Clyde Court.


Well, now that it has been accumulating for many years, I am sure it can’t fail us. And after my testing it for several times, the fact proves to be satisfactory. Maybe some would claim that looking at these Puma basketball shoes in pictures alone can really make some doubt the shoes’ ability to deliver well on court. Well, to tell you the truth, the shoes just do a tremendous job: it has a outstanding appearance as well as some fantastic settings.


As you can see in the images, the green upper along with the pink logo and pink outsole makes the shoe very distinguished among the others. Making a glimpse at it, you’ll feel very cool, which matches the “South Coast” theme. Some potential buyers even comment that the Clyde Court Disrupt from Puma looks great. Aesthetically pleasing, isn’t it? Anyway, I have to own up to it that I’ve totally taken to it.


In terms of the cushion, from the rubber outsole, we can see that Puma installs its Hybrid cushioning system in this Clyde Court Disrupt. After playing with it, you’ll get startled by its super bouncy setting. Accordingly, some reviewers would say that they love so much the combination of NRGY beads and IGNITE foam which deliver great comfort and feedback. When the NRGY beads and IGNITE foam are blended together, you can expect a great deal of impact protection imposed by the shoe. Besides, as a basketball shoe, the court feel is hardly ever absent. You would just run into sufficient protection with superb court feel. Puma has just done its best without impairing any faculty of the shoe.


There is nothing special in the knits of a basketball since the knits are virtually seen in many sneakers. According to a number of testers, the knit material in the upper of the Puma Clyde Court Disrupt is well implemented. And the same goes true for me after my initial play on it. All this prove an excellent job done by Puma. Besides, apart form the upper’s great performance, it is also far more durable than other basketballs for even after many times’ striking, it remains intact and performs as well as usual.

Made of soft materials, your feet can lie comfortably in the shoe. When you are playing with great enthusiasm, there is no need worrying about any slipping because it also does a good job in wrapping. It won’t bother you at any time; hence, what you need to do is concentrating on your game.


Next let’s turn to the outsole. With respect to this aspect, I’ve first read many  testers’ reviews and  a handful of whom claim that there are a few aspects with the traction that could still use a little improvement. Despite the fact, I am still quite content with it. Some of you may identify that the pattern used underfoot is an inverted traction pattern of what can be found on the original Puma Clyde. However, this does not count much but what matters more important is the outsole’s performance. In most kinds of ground, concrete or wood, the grip isn’t a disappointment at all. I’ve play on it for months. And from an objective standpoint, the grip has somewhat declined. So if you care so much with this, you might as well go for other ones.

On the other hand, to keep the shoe’s good performance, I suggest you wipe it sometimes but not frequently, or it would attracts dust more quickly. But anyway, for most people, the grip is enough whether for playing or daily wearing.

As for the fit, a considerable number of buyers say that the comeback model of Puma basketball is not really true to size. Well ,this does not always true. This point isn’t true of everyone; it depends. For those who go in for this Clyde Court and concern about the fit, here I’d give you some advice. If you want to maximize the potential of a 1:1 fit then you’d better go down 1/2 size. For me, it just goes true to size. Anyway, if you are considering buying it and still have concern, you might as well go to stores and try them on because whether or not the shoes fit you, only you know.



A number of buyers mentions of how attractive these Puma shoes look, making them fit for casual  use as well. Well, if you think so, why not give it a chance? If you want something new, then this shoe would be a good choice.  Provided that you get along with it for a period of time, you will end up extremely satisfy with it.
