Imagine Clowney and Usain Bolt in a commercial together.

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.

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

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.

Upper class isn't what I mean to say. I mean they are more of a "classic" style rather than being super high tech. At least that's what I think of.

I do not mean they are dress shoes by any means.

More of a fashion statement than an athletic shoe.

I would have really preferred to see him sign with Kangaroo because I think some new pouch styles are do.


However, Puma is a decent consolation.

My question is, did he sign today? after wearing Puma gear on the tonight show? Or did he wear that because he already had a deal. Because he could of just held off and probably got a deal with Nike or Adidas or whoever today/later this week.
