Default Clowney signs deal with Puma

Yes, Puma. It defiantly wouldn't have been my choice but congrats to JD. I mean when's the last time you've seen a puma commercial or even bought a pair of Pumas?

Default Re: Clowney signs deal with Puma

I'm indifferent on his decision. On one hand, he'll be Puma's main guy and highlighted attraction which is great. On the other hand, I can't recall ever seeing a Puma commercial. I know I have, they're just not nearly as common as the other brands.

I do like the fact that he will wear Nike cleats because when this sponsorship was being discussed back at the combine, I wondered if Puma even made football cleats. I would have preferred him be Nike or UA.. Nike because of the reputation of the brand or Under Armour so he could rock those awesome super hero cleats.

If he becomes the star many expect, that will cause Puma sales to explode. No doubt that he a clause where he will get a big piece of that new money that his football celebrity created.

I have two pair. They are expensive, high end trainers. Very European.

More of a fashion statement than an athletic shoe.

You can't be serious, euro fashion & Puma?

European fashion shoes would be Balenciaga, Giuseppe, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada etc.

Puma is Euro, it's a German company and have been in athletics for decades.

Unless you were joking, then I guess I read it wrong.

Alexander McQueen designs for Puma and they are $400 a pair.

What I said was they are high end trainers. Like Prada, they are very Euro and not American at all.

Default Re: Clowney signs deal with Puma

Puma is huge internationally, because of its affiliation with soccer. The US market for Puma is mainly as a high end, "lifestyle" fashion brand. Puma is expensive. They have boutique stores in some major cities, and you see their product in high end retailers like Nordstrom, Sax 5th Avenue, and others.

Strange choice for Clowney, unless his marketing team want some international flavor, or Puma is paying out the nose for US brand recognition.

Take it easy there, Pierre. Pumas are athletic shoes worn for fashion purposes along the lines of Chuck Taylors and Adidas Shelltoes. They are techinically athletic shoes, but nobody wears them while playing sports. They do make shoes for actual sport, just not football, so I assume JD will be marketing shoes like the ones mentioned above. My wife has been wanting a pair of Puma Suedes for a month or so and she's totally into the trendy fashion crap. They're not Prada or Gucci, but they're not air Jodans either. Just like we aren't alabama, but we sure as heck aint clemPson.

Well yes, but only a very small percentage of people can actually afford those brands.

OMG it really is the off season.. we have devolved to talking about European fashion. Smh...

After he's been in the league a few years he'll sign with one of the bigger brands. Happens all the time. It's an odd choice but I'm glad to see he's keeping things interesting for the most part

I believe Adidas and Puma were founded by two German, and nazi, brothers. Adi Das being a shortened name of one of the brothers name and Puma being the German word for a cougar.


Just a random bit of trivia

Adolph(adi) dassler (das) and Rudolph dassler. They were both nazis but adolph was in name only. Rudolph fought and adolph produced shoes. Adi also told the americans that rudolph was SS. Puma original name was Ruda. They had a business before called dassler brothers. The Dassler brother shoe factory outfitted athletes starting in the 1928 Olympics they also supplied Jessie Owens his spikes in the 1936 Berlin summer Olympics. I watched a pretty cool show about them on the biography channel I believe
