Over the years PUMA’s had their fair share of ups and downs, and they’ve recently seemed to slump a bit in success, shadowed by the other brands, but can these XT1s mark a comeback for the cat company?
Over here at eatmoreshoes we’re so concerned with vintage that we can’t catch every retro release. Despite this fact, we do always have our ears to the ground (and our eyes on it too), watching what everyone is wearing from event to event. Whether it’s at the recent Solemart at the Mercedes Benz Niederlassung in Berlin or the Sneakerness show-down in Köln, we’re right in stride with each step of the scene.
And as of recent we’ve been ecstatic to spot the leaping cat company on our colleagues’ and comrades’ feet, because to be a hundred percent honest the PUMA pairs worn in public have gotten scarcer as of late, even with the wonderfully lush and completely on point releases from the Shadow Society.
But we feel all that has changed with the drop of the new XT1s and XT2s. Not only have they been the talk of the town, but everywhere we go runner lovers can be spotted wearing a pair, and a large majority of consumers couldn’t simply choose a single colorway to go home with, opting to purchase multiple pairs in a full spectrum of PUMA pride.
If it wasn’t the Shadow Society’s great retro rival help, or those funky Hypebeast joints and the elusive and expensively-resold Staple shoes, then it may very well be the XT models that put PUMA back on the map.
