Not for serious athletes
on October 21, 2013
These are not cross-training shoes. They are heavy (about 65 grams heavier than other cross-trainers like Asics, Reebok, and Nike), too tight/narrow in the toe (even with ordering a half-size bigger), and uncomfortable because they do not offer enough cushion/support. Also, the inside sole of the shoe says "running"-although being a runner myself, I can tell there would not be enough cushion nor support for long-distance runs.
The style makes it an attractive shoe,but it fails in the performance department. If you are looking for standard sneakers for everyday use, these are fine. However, if you are looking for a shoe that provides serious stability, comfort, and speed in your workout (e.g., crossfit, HIT, etc.) Puma shoes are NOT the right choice for you-stick with proven performance brands for athletes (e.g., Nike or Reebok).
Should go without saying, but I will be returning these shoes.
