Who should buy the Puma Fusion Nitro Spectra

The Fusion Nitro Spectra from Puma is going to be great for people who love plush cushions under their feet. This shoe is so comfortable and soft that it's suitable for all-day off-court use.

Those who love a snug one-to-one fit will also find this shoe perfectly made for their feet.

Who should NOT buy the Fusion Nitro Spectra

If you fit any or all of the following descriptions, then the Puma Fusion Nitro Spectra is not for you:

  • Loves court feel. The midsole is soft and nice, but they say it's been stacked a little too high, putting responsiveness and court feel in jeopardy.
  • Frequently plays outdoors. The Fusion Nitro Spectra has a really nice bite, but the rubber just isn't built for rough surfaces.

Outdoor hoopers who also prefer court feel will find the Puma Clyde All Pro a more suitable basketball shoe for them.

One-to-one fit

The shoe's knit upper is reinforced with Puma's proprietary FUZIONFIT compression band, which makes sure that the fit is as secure as possible.

Dependable impact protection

To ensure comfort and protection from fatigue, the midsole is equipped with NITRO foam, a technology more commonly used in running shoes. This material feels really soft and provides such a pleasant experience straight out of the box.

Multidirectional grip

A durable rubber outsole is covered in a unique map-like pattern to ensure grip in all directions.
