About time!

The design of the shoe box as well as many other
products was/is a gimmick to begin with.
Madison Ave realized a long time ago people just
fell in love with the nifty design of the box which
was of course a means of getting people to buy
the shoe inside.
Opening a box is like a game if you really think
about it. It is a game with ones self as well as to
other people in "look what I bought today."

Afterall, you do not put the shoe box on your feet.
Do you!!

Although I never threw out any shoe box (they are great for storing stuff), this is much better and I'm proud of Puma. They will be my next sneakers to buy.
