Puma Sprint Technical Coolmax Sneaker Sock 2 Pk - &hellip Puma

I purchased these for an urban walking holiday (I don't know... I just made that phrase up). Three weeks walking in the concrete jungle. I was very, very apprehensive that this would be a terrible 'rotating bowtie' style gimmick, but I'd read somewhere that getting coolmax socks might help avoid blisters etc.

What a very pleasant surprise! The coolmax material fully worked and the fact that they were seamless was extremely effectve. In fact, I'd scheduled laundry for every third evening, meaning that I was wearing ordinary sports socks on every third day. These actually proved to be very uncomfortable after wearing the Puma socks. They really work! Kudos to Puma.

I loved the avengers movie and purchased this blu ray. In fact, I pre-ordered from Amazon. But what a rip off compared with the blu ray released in the US. I was very disappointed indeed when I found out.

SPOILER ALERT (DON'T read further if you haven't seen the movie)

There are two major differences between the two:

1) you won't see the same Coulson-Loki scene that appeared in the theatrical release in the UK version - Disney say this is because their production messed up with the rules on censorship and applied a different country's censorship rules to the UK/ European version. They even (wehich really winds me up) "thank our fans for their vigilance in… Read more
