Gaming success could all be in your shoes

At least the marketing people at PUMA want you to think that

Professional gamers are being held back from true success by their shoes, according to the marketing people at PUMA.

I know what you are thinking - if you have a hobby which requires you to sit down for long periods of time, pausing only to go to the loo, how can shoes help your gaming performance.

Puma, after “extensive talks with professional gamers”, developed active gaming footwear. For just $160, you can buy sock-like shoes that “deliver seamless comfort, support and grip” so you can frag like never before, both in your home and at the arena.

The shoe provides  Medial wrap-up grip in SEEK mode,  Lateral wrap-up support in ATTACK mode and heel wrap-up stability in CRUISE and DEFENSE mode.  This is a little odd because it is unclear how to change mode. 

A lack of this ability in your feet is probably what has been holding you back in Counterstrike for years.

Puma hopes you’ll not only buy these but also wear them while training on your Playseat active gaming chair, which launched last month and costs some $255.
