PUMA is one of the world’s leading sport lifestyle companies that designs and develops footwear, apparel and accessories. PUMA starts in Sport and ends in Fashion. Personally I´m a fan of the PUMA sport shoes, they have stylish trainers with no laces, as the PUMA El Rey shows.

A great alternative for the PUMA El Rey is the Puma Osu trainer, one of the most popular slip on sneakers for a long time.
