Do you feel that your gaming abilities could be improved by using the correct footwear? If so, Puma has a product you might find interesting:
Puma has announced a new line of gaming socks, or “Active Gaming Footwear,” designed to maximize your comfort and style on those 10-hour raids or your 40th battle royale loss of the day, as first reported by PC Gamer. One pair will you run you £80 in the UK and $160 in Australia, and it doesn’t look like Puma has made any official announcement about the product his U.S. shores. The UK and AU price suggests something in the ballpark of $100 USD or a little higher.
Puma’s official product page describes the socks as “designed for indoor and in-arena use, it delivers seamless comfort, support and grip so gamers can adapt to different active gaming modes and game their best.”
It’s not entirely clear if these gaming socks indeed have different “modes” or if that’s just marketing jargon, but it does also come with rubber grips on the bottom so you’re not slipping and sliding at your desk.
The socks does look comfortable, admittedly, and being able to wear them outside is a bonus, though you can buy shoe-like slippers that cost a lot less than $100. Still, some people will purchase anything that has the word “gamer” in the name.
