- 25 years after its debut, the Disc Fit system is back with a vengeance. This time around, it has more durable and softer wire that allows the form-fitting fit for a very long time. Puma makes this revolutionary technology lighter and sleeker than ever. A run without the hassle of tying laces is there for the taking with the Ignite Disc.
- Besides the upper, the PU foam Ignite is utilized in the midsole. Puma uses this top of the line technology for incredible bounce and durable cushioning.
- Puma’s unique foam upper is another reason why the fit is so personalized and comfortable. The foam is indispensable in hugging the foot from the first stride to the last.
The fit of the Puma Ignite Disc is fairly standard. Runners with medium measurements will find the average heel, midfoot, and forefoot rooms as fantastic for their needs. Making the fit more appealing is the sufficient toe box for those who need even more wiggle room at the front. Medium is the available width of the shoe. Accurate sizing is there for options 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
The outsole is largely made of EverTrack carbon rubber for superb durability and traction. A large transition cut from the heel to the forefoot helps with faster and effortless transitions. The outsole is also significantly important for the flexibility of the Ignite Disc. There are numerous flex grooves in this shoe. Puma uses the midfoot flex grooves to help with the cushioning while the forefoot grooves enhance the transition from the heel to the toes. Overall, this shoe has a durable outsole like the Saucony Guide 10.
The innovative PU foam called the Ignite delivers the kind of responsiveness that the sleek Ignite Disc needs. Another proprietary technology is the ForEverFoam that is located in the heel to help with shock dispersal. The base of the groundbreaking Disc Fit starts in the midsole as well. Puma’s Disc Fit uses wires that are directly attached to the midsole for great hold and security.
The lace-less upper is made possible with the Disc Fit System. As mentioned, there are smooth and lightweight wires that are directly attached to the midsole. With an easy twist of the Disc, runners can find the best tension in the wires that will give them their most personalized fit. The upper also uses memory foam, which only enhances the wraparound feel. This no-sew construction is perfect for sockless running as it creates a blister-free environment.
