Bottom line

The Fierce Knit, from Puma lifestyle shoe collection, offers the perfect combination of robust materials and lightweight construction. While it works as a lifestyle sneaker, it has the technical aspects for enduring rigorous activities. It is a good value for the money considering its features. The only drawback, though, is its rubber material that can feel hot especially during the summer.

The Puma Fierce Knit is offered in women’s sizing only. It gives ample support, stability, and optimal lockdown through its mesh and caging overlays as well as its lace-up closure system.

The Puma Fierce Knit is a demi-cut, sporty sneaker. It fuses performance technology with stunning appeal. The material mix is heavy, but it has a lightweight construction and technical components which can take on extreme challenges. It goes well with active wear.

Most buyers were happy that the shoe is comfortable. The shoe was designed with demanding physical activities in mind. No wonder the designers of this shoe elevated its technical details to ensure that it can endure the challenges of training.

The Puma Fierce Knit is a version of the Fierce sneaker that has a lightweight knit upper. Dance movements were the inspiration behind this creation. Made for intense training, the shoe takes on design with touches of style and performance.

The original Fierce silhouette went available on April 1, 2016, with Kylie Jenner as its endorser. It features a mesh and Ariaprene cleatie for good ventilation and comfort for extreme activities. It also has an IMEVA midsole that makes the trainers lightweight. The tongue makes these kicks look higher.

Although its target market is gym goers, the shoe design appeals to fashionistas as well.

  • The tongue has the Puma No. 1 Logo and the lateral side has the Cat Logo.
  • An Instagram photo by Kylie Jenner promotes the original silhouette as “A lightweight trainer with zero excuses.”
  • While the shoe carries Kylie Jenner’s aesthetic, a Puma representative confirmed that she didn’t contribute design ideas for the creation of the shoe (unlike Rihanna who is hands-on with the designs of Puma’s Fenty collection).
