[quote]Interesting...my friend walked all over (and I mean ALL OVER) Manhattan for three months wearing Speed Cats and they look perfect. I think regarding the whole nubuck / driving shoe controversy, it really depends on a few variables: how hard the person is on shoes, what kind of surfaces they usually walk on, how often do they use the same pair of shoes, etc...this reminds me off the Tod's Driving shoe thread, some people hated the shoes and said that they don't last, while others were happy with their purchases. Now, obviously the Puma's will last a lot longer than Tod's Driving shoes, but the best way to make sure they last is to buy several pairs of Pumas and rotate them. Why buy one pair at $70, when you can buy 3 pairs for $210? Edit: plus they make Speed Cats in leather, if you prefer. Jon.

CT Guy, Since I mentioned before my latest obsession with Speed Cats, I have become pretty familiar with the line and the different variants. So, if you have any questions, I should be able to help you out. My latest purchase (ok, so I am wearing them as I type this): Jon.
Quote:I do not like these one because of : - leather in "nubuck" = looks 1 year old after a few wearing - no rubber soled on the front but just leather = scratches on leather when you walk = looks 2 years old after a few wearings. = very short life.
