To commemorate the 10th anniversary of its partnership with Scuderia Ferrari, Puma just dropped new”10 Years” collection of its Ferrari-branded shoes. I’ll be honest here—the majority of Puma’s Ferrari shoes are, in my opinion,aggressively ugly.
And I say that as a fan of Puma as a brand; my closet, to the eternal chagrin of my wife, is home to several pairs of their sneakers. But this week I need to change my tune on the Ferrari kicks, because the latest selection contains a clear winner: the Ferrari Suede.
The Puma Suede is one of the many classic designs that the company has not stopped producing, and the Ferrari edition manages to retain all of the coolness, even while adding the Scuderia shield to the heel.
Of course, adding that shield also adds to the price—a regular pair of Suedes will set you back $59. The Ferraris? $100.
Whatever. It’s to be expected. They’re still cheaper than the equally awesome, unlicensed, Ferrari-themed Jordans, and wearing the Pumas with a pair of jeanswon’t make you look like one of those lunatic fans who dresses like he’s part of the pit crew on race day.
If you have an itchy “Add To Cart” finger, you can scratch it here.
