Besides the fact that Puma’s Sneakerinas include almost all of the syllables of one of my all-time favorite words (sneaky!), I’m way smitten with these new kicks. They’re bright, they’re comfortable, and they allow me to go from a yoga or Pilates class right on to the grocery store or out for a walk with the dog without a costume change (or looking like a dirty gym rat in public—besides the hair).
With a nice mix of synthetic leather and mesh that allows your tootsies to breathe, the Sneakerina (love the word-play on sneaker and ballerina flat for the name—genius!) has a moisture-wicking lining and an antimicrobial footbed that leaves your foot feeling totally cushiony without trying to beat your husband’s record for smelliest-foot-ever. (Ew.) With no tying required, I loved slipping mine on to grab the mail, and with little nubbers on the bottom of the shoe, even if you decided to dart outside in an ice storm (which we don’t recommend, for the record), you’d have decent traction. My only small complaint is that sometimes the elastic band over the top of your foot gets too tight, but over the week or so that I’ve been wearing them, it’s loosened up. In a nutshell, they’re cute and allow you to go all fashionably Sporty Spice whenever you so choose.
Now that you know a little about this piece of Sneakerina heaven, we wanted to share another fun fact with you: The FIFA Women’s World Cup is coming in just a few weeks! To get you totally psyched for the girl-power soccer event, the makers of the Sneakerina are giving one lucky reader a Puma women’s soccer training prize pack with a bag full of sport and lifestyle gear from the new line (If you haven’t seen it yet, check it. SO. CUTE.) and a pair of Sneakerinas. To win, just leave a comment with what your favorite combo word is—real or totally made up (and let’s get more creative than Bennifer, ya’ll!)—and we’ll select one random U.S. commenter to win.
Seriously, this giveaway is so good we feel like we’re turning three all over again! —Jenn
