35 euros instead of 85 euros Do people wear this brand in your country? Do you like them?

P.S. I know this is not the same color but it is the last fashion in Paris to wear different one on each foot.

Yes, a lot of people (high school - college age in particular) like to wear Puma in the USA. Not sure what else you're asking.

No, they are not the Jil Sander ones. Those retail for a lot more than 85 euros.

Used to wear them as a kid, while the cool kids wore Adidas. Seems as though the situation has reversed and now Puma is cool again, at least for 15 minutes or so.

BTW, did you know Puma was started by the brother of Adi Dasler, the owner of Adidas?

You can get these in NYC for $39.99 in quite a few places.

Puma = second name of Adi(das) for cheaper shoes in the past It is like Rolex and Tudor Theses are not the most expensive Puma endeed. But Quality is better than many expensive one's ( i have 2 pairs of a 110 euros models on which soles get unfused after a few uses&#33
The most expensive are theses ones which looks like F1 shoes but it is crap because is gets used very quick if you walk with them. Puma are very fashionable in France and UK. Same for 40 USD? Good price but ALL sneakers are cheaper in US... In France, good label sneaker are arround 100 euros. Nike's sharks are more than 150 euros.

I was with my wife at DSW, and I saw several pairs of Pony's. Wow did that bring back memories.

Ernest, nice shoes. I love Puma. I did not know the little tidbit about the Puma-Adidas connection, but I like Adidas too, so... I did not know these existed (very cool): Puma Jil Saner, very cool Currently I'm all crazy for the Puma Speed Cat, are these the "˜F1' shoes of which you are writing about? The shoes you posted pics of is that model the Mojito? 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.

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.
