For gym-goers looking for training shoes that come in a wider option, the PUMA Riaze Prowl is a better option. For runners who are PUMA fans, checking out the wide option of the PUMA Cell Regulate Woven could be a better fit for wide feet. Also, for those with flat feet that need support, the PUMA Eternity Nitro is a solid alternative.
