Updates to Puma Enzo
- The Puma Enzo is designed as a lightweight workout shoe that delivers a comfortable ride for extended periods of use. It employs a breathable mesh upper with an exaggerated tongue and collar to provide ankle support and style. It has midfoot straps that keep the foot secured by delivering a snug fit.
- The sole unit of this model uses the ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam. It is engineered to be lightweight to deliver a comfortable experience. A SoftFoam sock liner can be found inside the footwear. It is claimed to provide a soft, plush feel to the sole.
- The carbon rubber is used as a protective element at the bottom of the shoe. This material is meant to be durable and grippy.
Puma Enzo size and fit
The Puma Enzo is offered in both men’s and women’s versions and generally runs true to size. It comes in D - Medium for men and B - Medium width for women. The bootie construction of the shoe provides a snug fit which should be kept in mind when ordering a pair.
The outsole of the Puma Enzo is made of rubber. This compound is durable and slip-resistant on most surfaces. Reinforcing the heel and toe sections is a layer of carbon rubber which is similar in composition as car tires to enhance its durability and traction.
The underside features lugs that offer traction on different types of surfaces. The forefoot utilizes flex grooves to facilitate natural foot flexion.
Like most training shoes from Puma, the Enzo model employs the EVA foam. It is a lightweight cushioning uint that keeps the foot comfortable and protected by absorbing the shock caused by the foot making contact with the ground. The foam also does not easily compress to keep the foot steady during workouts.
Inside is a SoftFoam sock liner. This material provides soft, plush cushioning under the foot that keeps it comfortable at all times.
A breathable mesh gives the upper of the Puma Enzo its foot-conforming fit. It keeps the foot chamber well-ventilated. It is designed to provide adequate support during cross-training.
The exaggerated collar aims to keep the ankle supported. It features an elastic band on both sides that allow the mouth of the trainer to stretch, making it easier to put on the shoe. It is also lightly padded at the back area to help keep the foot locked down and prevent accidental removal while the user is in motion.
It uses a lacing system that is integrated with the medial and lateral side panels. This setup works to improve the lateral support when the laces are tightened.
The rear section features a synthetic material that works as an external heel counter. It holds the foot steady during dynamic routines. The extra material up top creates a pull loop which acts as leverage when the person is putting on the footwear.
