They still make puma cleats, I have two pairs lol.
I bought one pair two years ago, and one pair one year ago. Both were on sale at dicks (different times) for like $35.
Honestly best cleats I've ever worn. I played soccer for years and so they're the most comfortable type of cleats for me. That, and I'm used to every shoe I wear not having much ankle support, I have literally never worn a pair of shoes/cleats more than a couple times if they were mid/highs. They just feel too restricted for me, I'm used to making sharp cuts and sudden sprints and anything mid/high is too restrictive for me.
In the end though, it's all dependent upon what you feel most comfortable in when doing actions that are seen in your style of play (for example, front guys might want low ankles because of making last minute dives to the side in the snake or something, and back guys might prefer ankle support and they could deal with mid tips because they aren't really doing all the aggressive sprints and cuts and dives).
