Updates to Puma Bravery
- The Puma Bravery is built for running, but it’s also created for many activities and for shoe enthusiasts who just want to have a comfortable shoe for their daily tasks. The components and technologies used in this shoe are all of high quality and they keep the foot performing in a natural way, but they do not limit how comfortable the foot feels while wearing it.
- The upper unit of the Bravery uses a performance mesh that’s flexible and breathable. It covers the foot responsibly, keeping it secure while inside the shoe. A heather graphic print enhances its visual appeal, as its color schemes follow the contemporary templates that cater to modern runners. A traditional lacing system locks the foot in and keeps it in place.
- The midsole unit of this running shoe makes use of a high quality injection molded foam that runs its entire length. It responsibly carries the foot and keeps it safe from impact and discomfort. Its plush nature lets the runner feel a springy underfoot sensation. It’s also flexible.
- A high quality, abrasion-resistant foam makes up the outsole unit of the Puma Bravery. It’s used liberally in the forefoot and heel areas, so it delivers long-lasting protection against the harmful effects of surface friction and exposure to road debris. Flex grooves allow the platform to move in accordance with the natural movements of the wearer’s foot.
Puma Bravery size and fit
The Puma Bravery has a regular running shoe length. The sizes that are available for it are adherent to the standard measurements, making it agreeable to the preferences of men and women. The heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections have medium widths. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curvature of the human foot.
The Puma Bravery utilizes a rubber compound in the outsole. It’s a high quality material that is capable of shielding the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear. Exposure to the abrasive nature of the asphalt won’t become a problem because of its durable nature.
Flex grooves are observed to be in the forefoot section. They help the runner when it comes to the toe-off phase because they cause the platform to bend in tandem with the wearer’s foot movements.
An injection molded Ethylene vinyl acetate mid-sole unit makes the platform more agreeable and comfortable to the underfoot. Running the entire length of the shoe, it delivers reliable cushioning to the whole foot. It is also able to attenuate shock during the impact phase of the gait cycle.
The upper unit of the Puma Bravery uses performance mesh. It’s a lightweight material that is able to bend and flex along with the foot. It doesn’t restrict the runner’s movements. It’s breathable, so it allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe to keep the foot cool and dry.
A heather graphic print makes the upper more visually endearing to modern runners. The many color schemes available for this model allow consumers more choices when it comes to the look of their shoe.
A traditional lacing system makes the upper snugger and more secure. As it is adjusted, the upper fabrics also follow suit, essentially keeping the coverage as customizable as possible.
