With design cues taken from a millennial, tech-forward runner, the Puma Ignite evoKNIT, comes the street-appropriate Puma Avid evoKNIT version that covers the basic comfort needs of the foot for non-performance activities. Its sock-like ankle collar grants an easy on-off. 

Get pumped up with the clean, hip, and street-ready composition of the Puma Avid evoKNIT in low-top profile. Its angular silhouette, wrapped with Puma’s most advanced knitting technology, offers a sock-like contour in decent colorways. Whether you’re off to hit the gym or go strolling along the high street, this seamlessly knit sneaker won’t make you look out of place. Even more when you pair it with neatly rolled-up denim, slim-fit pants, or tight joggers that expose those ankles.

Puma’s attempt to dress the feet in a foot gear loaded with functional, comfortable, and trend-forward features materialized with the release of the Puma Avid evoKNIT. This running-inspired footwear covers the feet with a breathable, foot-hugging knitted membrane. The midsole is engineered using a cushioned Ignite foam that delivers unmatched energy return. The injection-molded EVA foam offers smooth heel-to-toe transition on different urban ground surfaces.

Puma is known for its game-changing collection of sports footwear that embodies style and outstanding quality. Since way back 1920s, this German label has been pouring out uniquely-crafted silhouettes like the classic low-top Clyde, and pioneering technologies never before seen in the sports shoe world such as the laceless Puma Discs during the 1990s.

In 2015, Puma turned heads when it challenged other running shoe manufacturers with the drop of the Puma Ignite evoKNIT, a street-ready and tech-forward runner that featured for the first time the dynamic evoKNIT.

Consumers readily embraced this millennial foot gear for its lightweight, breathable, and form-fitting elements which upped the ante for the brand to come up with more design options that take in the same knockout features.

A couple of years later, Puma came up with an ankle-revealing, urban-fitting silhouette suitable for everyday wear, aptly called the Avid evoKNIT. This time it won the liking of fashion-savvy enthusiasts as it was fabricated with sophisticated color patterns and foot-hugging evoKNIT construction.

A creative play of colors, cuts, and textures came out from the floodgates of Puma in 2018, creating a pool of Avid evoKNIT variations, from subdued and toned down varieties to dip-dyed options under the Avid evoKNIT Haze concept. The brand also joined up with Diamond Supply Co. in putting forth classy renditions in black-turquoise and heather grey. Other styles came out such as the Puma Avid evoKNIT Diamond and Mosaic Evolution.

  • Puma Avid evoKNIT’s slip-on, cleatie construction is lightweight.
  • It comes with a lace closure that enhances a secure and snug fit.
  • The leaping Puma cat logo is embroidered on the heel.
  • The removable footbed delivers a cushiony feel.
