Updates to Puma Burst
- The Puma Burst is a running shoe that’s created for those with neutral gaits. It features components and systems that make the running experience as agreeable as possible. It has a simple yet modern design that’s sure to be appealing for contemporary runners. It doesn’t have a lot of robust technologies, but the ones that are present in it are efficient.
- The breathable upper unit of this model features a two-layer mesh. It is able to accommodate the flow of air into the foot-chamber in order to keep the foot cool and dry. The Puma Formstrip that’s been fused directly to the upper acts as a thin overlay system that assists in making the coverage snug and secure.
- The platform of the Puma Burst has a straightforward set of technologies. The underfoot cushioning system features a full-length foam, which delivers a springy and responsive ride. It lightly attenuates impact shock, as well. Externally, carbon rubber covers the foam material, shielding it from wear and tear, while also providing reliable traction.
Puma Burst size and fit
The Puma Burst has a standard running shoe length. Regular measurements were used while it was made. The available width for the men and women’s versions is medium. It accommodates those with medium sized feet. The natural shape of the human foot is mimicked by its semi-curved shape.
Carbon rubber has been used for the outsole unit of this Puma running shoe. It protects the mid-sole foam from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers traction, which is important when it comes to achieving surface control.
The midsole unit of the Puma Burst features the SPRK, which is a full-length foam that’s responsive and springy. It gives the foot a soft and cushioned feel. As it cushions the foot, it also attenuates impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.
A cushioned footbed has been added right above the main mid-sole unit. It delivers additional cushioning to the foot. It’s not stiff, so it won’t make the underfoot experience unwieldy.
The upper unit of the Puma Burst makes use of two mono-mesh layers that have different colors. They provide an appealing look to the façade. But they also secure the foot and keep it in place. They’re also breathable, allowing environmental air to enter the foot-chamber in order to keep the foot well-ventilated.
Puma Formstrips have been fused directly to the upper fabric. Placed on both the lateral and medial sides, they make the coverage more secure by helping the mesh as it wraps around the foot.
