Puma Fierce Knit History

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 bootie 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.
