PUMA Men's Whirlwind Classic Sneaker
I purchased the Puma Whirlwinds for a number of reasons. I had never run before and I was very interested in trying the sport and hopefully whipping myself into shape for the last two thirds of my life. I chose this shoe because it had a classic stylish look unlike the other 99% of running shoes. You know, the ones that look like an amusement park was magically condensed and formed into a sneaker. The Puma Whirlwind was also about $80 dollars cheaper than those competitors. I figured that since I may not be into this whole running idea after my first go at it, I better stick to something less than a car payment. And with this shoe, if the running didn't pan out, I knew I could grab a boom-box and a piece of cardboard and become a break-dance champion. Well, here I am a month later still running, and wheezing, my way toward a more healthy me. I believe this shoe has made all the difference. It's lightweight yet feels very stable on my feet. The traction is wonderful on all types of terrain that I have run through... pavement, mud, puddles, and some wooded areas. I would definitely recommend the Puma to anybody starting out with this insane idea of exercise because if it can do the trick for me, it will certainly do it for you. And if it doesn't work out for you, I'll see you on the cardboard!
