    After running for an extended period of time – maybe about an hour, I could feel the impact on the balls of my feet.

    Taking it onto the road, the Ignite Dual shoes make for a comfortable run. The heel is wide and not too soft, allowing for a decent heel strike. The sole at the front remains flexible and while running it felt as if these Pumas forced me to jog more on the front of my feet, allowing for a slightly straighter posture.

    It’s the type of shoe that you will keep you on the move during your training and that you won’t even want to take off at afterwards.

    As much as it gives a comfortable feel, it plays a more important role in keeping my feet running strong.
