- The Puma Cell Regulate KRM is a men’s versatile workout shoe. It is created to perform at the gym while also being ready to complete a sporty outfit for a street walk.
- The shoe belongs to the brand’s Cell family as it features the 10CELL 1.0 cushioning unit. It protects the lower extremities and the back from the impact of intensive workouts.
- The trainer has a raised midfoot, supported by a TPU shank. It prevents the heel and the arch from excessive inward or outward rolling.
- The midfoot support in the upper unit is regulated by thick round laces. They run through the fabric eyelets which are placed close to the midsole for a more secure foothold. An elastic strap with the Puma branding reinforces the fit at the forefoot.
The Puma Cell Regulate KRM is available in a range of men’s full and half sizes between US 7.5 and 13. It tends to run true to size. The trainer accommodates people with a regular foot width as it comes in a standard D - Medium width profile.
The bottom of the Cell Regulate KRM is split into two parts due to the raised midfoot. Both the heel and the forefoot sections are lined with a durable EverTrack rubber to shield the platform.
A variety of textured pods are strategically placed throughout the unit. They ensure traction on both indoor and outdoor surfaces.
Geometrical flex grooves are placed between the pods. They help in keeping the sole pliable and adaptive to various foot movements.
The Puma Cell Regulate KRM relies on the 10CELL 1.0 midsole unit for cushioning. It is the brand’s own technology which attenuates impact while providing underfoot comfort and protection. Comprised of polyurethane (PU) elastomer cells, it is claimed to last longer than a traditional foam material.
The shoe employs a supporting shank in the midfoot section. It is made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), which is a lightweight yet extremely firm material. The shank helps people with overpronation in preventing an excessive inward rolling of the foot.
The upper unit of the shoe makes use of a sturdy mesh material. It has larger ventilation pores in the toe box for enhanced breathability and is tightly-woven in the rest of the shoe for structured support.
A thick synthetic leather overlay hugs the heel and the bottom of the unit. It contributes to the durability of the footwear and minimizes undesirable wobbling of the foot. Part of it extends up at the back to form a pull loop which assists in putting on the trainer.
The foothold is secured by a combination of laces and a strap. The rope-like laces run through the fabric eyelets which are placed at the bottom of the unit. They are thick and round and brace the midfoot securely once cinched. The fit in the forefoot section is retained by an elastic strap with the Puma sign.
The heel collar and the tongue are lightly padded to prevent chafing and accidental heel slippage. A soft inner lining also serves to supply a pleasant in-shoe experience.
