- The Puma Prowl Alt Weave is a workout shoe designed to be fashionable and serviceable whether on the streets or at the gym. This version retains the silhouette of the original model, but the material used in the upper has been replaced with woven textile. This fabric is stretchy to accommodate foot expansion during workouts. It is also breathable to keep the inside cool.
- It has the same technologies for the midsole and outsole as the Puma Prowl Alt Mesh. The midsole utilizes the injection molded ethylene-vinyl acetate EVA which delivers a soft and responsive cushioning. As for the outsole, the hard-wearing areas are lined with rubber pods that add traction and durability.
The Puma Prowl Alt Weave is fashioned to accommodate women’s foot shape and is only available in female sizes. It comes in a B - Medium width profile. The alternative lacing system on this model is created to deliver a snugger fit at the midfoot when the laces are tightened.
The midsole of the Puma Prowl Alt Weave also doubles as the outsole. This lightweight material is crafted to be durable to endure the wear and tear associated with cross-training.
High-wear areas such as the forefoot and the heel are reinforced with rubber pods. These components also enhance traction of the underside. The rubber at the forefoot extends to the front, protecting the toes during burpees and sled pushes.
The midsole employs the IMEVA foam technology. This cushioning platform is engineered to be soft and pliable to attenuate shock and accommodate natural foot movements. It is also made to be responsive to prevent foot fatigue when used for extended periods.
Inside is a soft foam sockliner. This additional layer of cushioning heightens the shock absorption of the midsole for amplified comfortability.
The Puma Prowl Alt Weave utilizes a one-piece woven textile upper. This material is lightweight and breathable to keep the foot chamber well-ventilated. It is also stretchy to allow the natural expansion of the foot during workouts.
The dynamic lacing system features webbed eyelets that are sandwiched between the upper and the sole unit. This construction makes for a tighter fit as the laces are able to fully hug the sides of the foot when they are cinched.
The collar and the tongue are both lightly padded to prevent irritation to the instep and ankle areas. They also provide a snug and comfortable fit.
