Puma’s Storm Adrenaline is garnering attention for its aesthetic, but not in the way the brand envisioned. Social media users said that when looking at the shoe from above , the shoe bears a resemblance to Adolf Hitler. Purveyors of this comparison say the toe overlay is similar to Hitler’s hairstyle and the mid foot tongue a likening to his toothbrush mustache.
But it gets better.
There has been pushback against the Hitler resemblance, but not in the way one might think.
Others countered that the shoes did not look like Hitler, but rather poet Edgar Allen Poe.
Puma has not commented on the shoes and as of yet, responded to our requests for comments on the matter.
