Abrasion-resistant outsole

The outsole of this PUMA training shoe uses ground contact EVA. Though it is the same compound which is used for the midsole, the bottom structure is crafted to withstand abrasion associated with training on various surfaces.

Flex grooves are present at the forefoot to promote natural movements while the heel is designed to be relatively flat to help keep the rearfoot steady. The tread pattern on the underside provides traction on and off gym floors.

Lightweight stabilized footbed

A full-length EVA foam makes up the midsole of the PUMA Emergence. This platform is lightweight, resilient, and protects the foot against impact. The broad heel construction provides rearfoot stability.

Anti-slip sockliner

Inside the trainer is the SoftFoam+ sockliner. This element delivers an extra layer of comfort and prevents the foot from slipping inside the shoe.

The PUMA Emergence's rearfoot section

The PUMA Emergence sports a slip-on construction with a modern cleatie collar that hugs the ankle for a sock-like fit. It features a lacing system that allows users to tighten the fit if needed.

Fabric loops are attached on the tongue and back of the collar. These components make it easier for wearers to pull on the shoe.

Enhanced midfoot support

A rubber lace-through is found at the midfoot which aims to enhance lateral support when the laces are cinched. The structures connect to the synthetic overlay that wraps the heel for steadiness.

Breathable upper
