Puma’s latest trainers have gone viral as people have realised that they look like the leader of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler.

Looks more like Edgar Allan Poe to me. Which is appropriate because the best way to dispose of a pair of my shoes at the end of their lifecycle is to seal them inside an airtight brick wall forever.

I won't buy till they come out with a Donald Trump look alike shoe.

Whatever happened to "sneakers"?

It makes sense, sort of. Puma is a German company. And a substantial block of stock is owned by a French (collaborators!) company.

Looks more like McCartney on the Sergeant Pepper cover to me.

Probably smell like him too.

Got to agree with AmoebaStampede on this one. Those are Edgar Allan Poe shoes.

This analogy belongs in a Rorschach test. It makes me think of an overpriced, fancy pair of what we used to call tennis shoes or sneakers that someone had dropped chocolate syrup on.


Anyone remember when putting pennies in your Penny Loafers was banned by schools?

Didn't the Dead Kennedys song "California Über Alles" have the lyric "You will jog for the Master Race".... These would be perfect. Ship them to California.

In two days, April 30, it will be the 75th anniversary of his death. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/adolf-hilter-death-suicide-anniversary-nazi-germany-world-war-2-eva-braun-history-a9488061.html

Odd timing.

"What can you make of these shoes, johnny?"

"Why, I could make a brooch, a really great doorstop, shred them and duct tape them to the wall to make modern art. Why, the possibilities are ...are...nevermind the nurse is passing out our meds now."

I had no idea mountain lions could be trained. Maybe they just needed a trainer they could respect?

Wasn't the Puma trainer friends with the Tiger King?

"Heel, Hitler!"

Every time I put these things on I want to sprint into Poland.
