I've been wearing Puma shoes for years, mainly for walking on the local nature trails, in the woods, and on the beach. I usually buy two pairs at a time, that way I can alternate them and extend their life. I've been looking around for replacements and looked at many different brands, because I didn't see the same style of Pumas that I've been wearing. I ultimately found what appeared to be the same style online and when they arrived, they looked at first glance to be very similar. However, when I actually removed them from the box, took a closer look and tried them on, they are very different. The quality seems to have gone downhill. The stitching wasn't finished as well as in the past, and they have added some sort of bump inside that made the shoes very uncomfortable. I ended up having to return them, and the experience has tainted my opinion of the company.
