Puma Is the Preferred Sneaker Brand of Rikers Island Prison?!?!*~

According to Ratter, the sneakers are (unofficially) the only sneakers allowed to be worn by inmates at Rikers Island. Other brands including New Balance, Nike, adidas, and Converse Chuck Taylors are forbidden by the Department of Corrections because they follow the regulations of not having metal supports that could be used at weapons, hallow cavities where things could be stashed, or have gang affiliated colorways (DOC policy only allows black, gray, or white).
