Are these trainers nice or naff??

Coming up to winter here (Aus). Puma suede trainers with 100% leather upper. They also come with normal laces that can be swapped out.

I’m not much of a trainery person and don’t trust my own judgement!

Hideous!

100% naff

The ribbons make them hideous, but they'd be inoffensive/bland with normal laces...although the huge eyelets would then look odd, imho.

They are okay if you have the rest of outfit that goes with them. Not for everyday use. Did you see Selena Gomez campaign for Puma when she wears the blush colour shoes similar to this. Looked good. So if you have the style to carry them off I think they are cool but they are definitely a lifestyle shoe and not a true trainer.

Naff, sorry

HuskyMcClusky Tue 20-Mar-18 04:54:26

Okay, thanks, good to know. grin

DXB, unfortunately I’m pretty sure the answer to that is ‘no, I haven’t!’

I've just bought a pair of Axel Arigato. Try a pair of those or stan smith's

I think they are very cute on kids but wouldn't wear them as an adult

IWouldLikeToKnow Tue 20-Mar-18 06:03:56

I don't like them but they are quite popular with younger adults.

HuskyMcClusky Tue 20-Mar-18 06:09:08

Value, they’re lovely but I tend to get white shoes so filthy blush

Love the Alex trainers but circa $300aud is maybe a bit of an extravagance for some who is a self admittedly - not into trainers !
Are you looking for grey @HuskyMcClusky

Fairylea Tue 20-Mar-18 06:39:46

With normal laces I’d quite like them, the ribbons look a bit shockconfusedgrin

HuskyMcClusky Tue 20-Mar-18 06:40:21

Howdo, oh gosh, hadn’t even looked at the price - yeah, I’m hoping for about half that! Grey or maybe navy or something? (I don’t realky know what I’m doing...)

smallpatrol Tue 20-Mar-18 06:41:13

Not my cup of tea.

Chimchar Tue 20-Mar-18 06:45:22

Sticking my neck out here, but I love them!
My style has been described as 'quirky' though. grin

WeAreGerbil Tue 20-Mar-18 06:47:34

Yeah I like them too and I'd wear them though I am middle aged! In the first colour though not the pink.

Rudgie47 Tue 20-Mar-18 06:48:17

I dont like them personally, I htink they are more for a teenager. Are you a teen OP?

HuskyMcClusky Tue 20-Mar-18 06:49:08

God no, early 40s!

HuskyMcClusky Tue 20-Mar-18 06:50:36

I just wanted something a bit different. I’m sick of all the Stan Smiths and Converse that the Instagrammers wear.

Howdoyoudressforthisweather Tue 20-Mar-18 08:04:39

@HuskyMcClusky I know you said no white, but you can keep these clean with baby wipes and remove the laces when they get a bit grubby - plus they are not the usual cons/stans. I love a white runner !

Found these in grey .... but can't find them in stock. What's your usual style OP ?
