    I don't see TWE carry the Puma line.

    When I check bay, all I see are retro style tennis shoes. They seem to be making performance running shoes and soccer shoes, but I don't really see tennis shoes.

    What's up with Puma?

    They've been out of the tennis shoe market for a LONG time.

    Serena used to wear Puma shoes, as did Boris.

    Wonder how Puma arrived at the decision to exit the tennis market altogether.

    Is Puma doing poorly overall?

    Puma has a re-issue of the G.Vilas shoe...looks pretty nice if you like retro fashion. I've seen 'em in a couple of different shoe mags recently.

    Those I have seen.

    But I don't consider them performance tennis shoes.

    They're like Stan Smith- or Converse-type of good-looking retro shoes that you can wear with a pair of jeans.
