I am admittedly not very fashion forward, but I didn't even know that Puma still made shoes. Sure enough they do, and they've got themselves one hell of a spokeswoman in the form of the always gorgeous Selena Gomez. I thought Pumas went out of fashion around the time Selena's first co-star, Barney the Purple Dinosaur, did but apparently they're still hip and cool and the kids are all wearing them. Who knew?
I'm thinking that other sneaker companies from the 80s and 90s should try a revival featuring a hot starlet. Maybe Roos could round up Miley Cyrus to show how you can carry a spare condom in your sneaker with Roos. Or maybe Rihanna could do a line of ads for British Knights. I'd buy some of those if they ever came back. Hell, I'd definitely buy a pair of Roos too, those were my jam back in the day.
Anyway, this isn't going to convince me to buy some Pumas, but it's definitely a step in the right direction for the company. They've managed to grasp on to another shred of relevance. Here's hoping they ride it all the way to the bank.
