I have moments when I buy Pumas because I love how they look. I think we all do that – we see a shoe and it speaks to us. Or we decide we need a shoe in navy because, well, we don’t have one in that color. I often browse shoes with that in mind. Then there are those times when you just need a comfortable shoe. Granted, it helps a whole lot if that shoe also looks good.
One day I was wandering DSW as I often do. I walk around the store dreaming of all the shoes I’d like to own but can never afford to buy. I try on the outrageous heels. I try on the flats that just are boring to me. And sometimes I make it to the back where the sneakers are kept. I don’t go back there that often because it isn’t like they are going to have Clydes or suedes. They focus mostly on athletic shoes. However, I walked back there just to see what Pumas they might have and I saw these brown Pumas. First, I didn’t have any dark brown Pumas. I figured that’s a good color to have. Second, I liked the fuschia accents on the shoes. I love pink so that’s cool. Third, I turned them over and saw that the soles were smooth. I actually thought that perhaps they might work for dancing because of the soles. So I tried them on. Wow. Total comfort.
I walked around a bit in the shoes and went back and forth on if I should buy them. They were fairly cheap so price wasn’t the issue. I don’t buy just to buy. Money is precious – I don’t want to part with it just on a whim. I took off the shoes and left the store. Needless to say I was back the next day buying the shoes. I couldn’t pass up the comfort. As it turned out, they aren’t ready for the dance floor. The sole is the type of rubber that grips. I can’t spin in the shoes so until I wear them around a bit and smooth out the sole, I can’t dance in them. I would say they are the most comfortable Pumas I have ever owned. I don’t wear them too much because I want them to stay comfortable. Kudos Puma for a very fine shoe!!
