    laces out, velcro thing strapped?
    laces in, velcro thing strapped?
    or with the velcro thing just open and flapping around like the "cool" kids seem to be wearing them today..

    i cant tell which way is proper.

    Laces loose, velcro thing open. Wear them with narrower jeans and stuff them behind the tongue.

    I actually do like those. I completely agree with Max...that is the only way to wear them. I'd recommend Mihara for Puma though, they really put some details into their shoes that separate them from the normal Pumas.

    Um, only if you are stuck in the 2004... pretending to be riffing on 1985. Dude, aren't you the guy who is always raging against the ironic hipster look?

    Yes they are. I was just saying that I own a pair of Mihara's shoes (not that same model) and I'd suggest getting his shoes because they do have some awesome details.

    FYI the product link is: Mihara MY-25

    Yeah, but hypocrisy is way underrated.

    Anyway, It's not ironic if you actually like the way it looks and it's not hipster unless it's accessorized with atrocious too-tight t-shirts, asymmetric bangs, sweat bands, aviator sunglasses, and neon colors.

    Yea, I kind of like that model. Most Puma shoes are too "futuristic" or weird looking for me.

    I wouldn't spend $150 on them, but i do like them. It seems like i shouldn't like them but i really do.

    Dead Thread.

    I saw a chixx in the grocery store who was wearing nike hi tops (blazer mid or dunks) and the whole look did it for me. But I was so focused on the shoes I didn't absorb what about the outfit as a whole made the look work. Help me out? Photos, links, blogs, hit me, thanks.
