    I recently bought a puma shoe model: Puma men black mesh mid top running shoes talion idp. from myntra that i ordered on 24th dec 2017 and received on 30th dec 2017. The upper surface of the shoe is in a very bad condition. The upper surface of the shoe has tear up. I am a student and thus does not have enough money to buy another pair of such costly shoes. I bought Puma shoes only because i had faith in their brand. Please either get this shoe replaced or be kind enough to return the money. Yours kindly.
