Puma’s First Round Boot – sneakers for superheroes

Puma_boots

Does anyone else think of Wonder Woman when they look at Puma’s First Round Boots? Or do you just think of … fashion criminals? Whatever your thoughts on these, we’re thinking it would take super-powers to get these babies laced up quickly in the morning, but then, given that it would take super-powers to get us to wear them, that’s not a problem we’re likely to be facing anytime soon. 

Of course, not being sneaker-wearers in any case, we’re clearly heavily biased against these, but if you love them, you can buy them for $125 at Karmaloop. Will you be buying them, though? And if so, what will you be wearing them with?

[Thanks to Carol for the report!]

    isn’t it obvious what I’ll be wearing them with?
    A red basque top, blue knickers and red cape.
    *Only kidding*

    It reminds me more of The Greatest American Hero

    Wonder Woman would never wear something so hideous that doesn’t even have a little heel to it!

    That might be the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen.

    I kinda of love them. Not in the ‘want to wear’ sense, but I love that they exist. Basically I smile every time I look at the photo.
    I also wish I had those last Halloween when I was a superhero, in my blue outfit and red cape.
