Facts

  • The grace and elegance of the New York City Ballet dancers are embodied in the Puma En Pointe Muse Satin. It features a satin-like upper with the elastic bands at the midfoot which are reminiscent of ballet shoes. But don’t let its dainty style fool you as this training shoe from Puma is built to support rigorous gym training.
  • The midsole is made of Puma’s IGNITE foam technology, which brings impact protection and steadiness. The underside is protected by a layer of rubber which also adds traction on most surfaces.

A rubber outsole protects the bottom of this workout trainer. It has grooves that promote natural foot flexibility during forward and side-to-side motions. The tread pattern on it provides traction, but also facilitates smooth twists and turns on studio floors.

The Puma En Pointe Muse Satin is equipped with the IGNITE foam technology. This platform is crafted from injection-molded EVA (IMEVA) foam which is lightweight and delivers a responsive cushioning that assists in explosive takeoffs and softens landings.

The upper of the Puma En Pointe Muse Satin emulates the design of ballet flats with its satin-like material and overall construction. The slip-on style facilitates a quick on-and-off action, but the tightness of the fit can be adjusted via the lace-up structure. The lacing system integrates with the elastic straps, enhancing lateral stability of the upper when the laces are cinched.

Another steadying component is the external heel counter. It cups the rearfoot to keep it steady and prevent heel slippage. There is also a padded collar that prevents chafing at the back of the ankle and helps in securely locking the foot down.

This iteration of the Puma Muse is part of Puma’s Do You collection that was launched in collaboration with brand ambassador, supermodel, and actress Cara Delevingne. The line was aimed to inspire, encourage, and empower women.
