    I used to have a pair of the Walter Payton ROO's when I was like seven or something. They were the coolest shoes out there.

    I miss my Walter Payton ROO's.

    (VKK3450 @ Mar. 30 2005,00:24) I got tired of the black and white speedcat thing a while ago. It's like the default; "I want some Pumas cuz I heard they're cool..." "Hey, get some black and white speedcats... Everyone has got em.." "Oooo, if everyone has them, they have to be great.."
    Happily I have only ever seen one other person wearing them. If they were more ubiquitous I would not have gotten mine. Everyone else seems obsessed with the 1000 colorways of the other Pumas, usually yellow, orange and blue etc.
    I have 5 pairs: Really light gray suede w/ blue leather stripe Tan / Coffee w/ brown leather stripe White leather w/ hazed-gold stripe Brown leather w/ chocolate chip leather stripe Black leather w/ gray leather stripe I am happy to say I have never seen another person wearing any of the above-mentioned Speedcats.

    I'm wearing some Adidas Daroga Suedes today. Â They have a soft back so you can stomp them down and wear them like mules, or wear them like normal (though lacking heel support) shoes. [​IMG]

    I saw those at Macy's a few months ago. Â Those are sweet.

    And comfortable as hell. But they look a little too much like real (i.e. functional) running shoes. Sometimes, I wear them, and it looks like I just forgot to bring my other shoes to the gym...

    What do the My5, 7, and 8s look like. I cannot find any images on the internet. Also, what do you think of the MY13s in coffee/green? Thank you.

    MY13's are decent - the line is getting back on track after a few subpar models (MY-10 to MY-12, imo).

    Ha, my friend just got back from a holiday in Thailand and he is rockin these sweet shoes... They are white leather and look like Puma Speedcats, but have a lace protector on top that has a Diesel logo and they say Diesel across the heel...

    Looks like the counterfeiters are being innovative. We were joking about their advertising slogans "Two Brands, One Shoe, Half Price..

    I think for a gag I am going to make a shirt with a big "Gianni Armani" logo on it. Maybe even have it say "designed by Hugo and Gabbana"

    Wow, you must not get out of the states then. Those speedcats and mostros were beyond exhausted by the time I was studying abroad in France damn near 3 years ago. I came back to college in Georgetown and everybody who was back from visiting Europe had them in D.C. as well.

    Well you can still see quite a few people in Europe still wearing them. Right now my 'favourite' sneaker is the Puma Rudy Dassler by Alexander van Slobbe... but if I intend to walk a lot, then I switch to my Nike Air Max '95s

    When ever I see them I think of those hole filled Jamaican tank tops, in spite of that I still like the Green 95 Air Max's.
