I swore off Nike shoes after the Michael Vick debacle, even though they were the ones I found most stylish and comfortable. I looked around and found PUMA, which I also loved, and have been wearing for years now. I recently decided to replace my walking shoes, so I bought a pair of Pumas online, and I have to say I'm very disappointed. Not only are they very uncomfortable, but they're not the quality I was used to in the past. The shoes just aren't as well made as they used to be. I might have been able to look past that and give them a shot, but since they're so uncomfortable, I'm going to have to return them.
