Updates to Puma Ignite Dual Shift

  • The Puma Ignite Dual Shift is a road running shoe that is intended for wearers who have neutral foot motion. It uses the Shift Mesh upper. This technology aims to provide a more breathable coverage as well as a fresher look and design.
  • Featured on the shoe is the carbon rubber outsole. The material's primary purpose is for additional durability on a wide variety of paved surfaces.
  • The midsole utilizes the Ignite Foam which is essential in delivering energy return throughout the road running sessions.

Puma Ignite Dual Shift size and fit

The special version of the Ignite Dual follows the standard shoe measurements when it comes to size. The shoe is best for those who want to excel in short and extended distance road running activities. The available widths are D - Medium for the men's version.

Outsole

The carbon rubber outsole is integrated into the Puma Ignite Dual Shift. This component of the shoe aims to deliver the right amount of traction that is needed on different paved surfaces. This material also provides durability that lasts for a long time.

Added flexibility is encouraged by the deep forefoot flex grooves. These groves are strategically placed in the forefoot area to allow the runner's foot to move freely as well.

Midsole

The Guidance Line is described as a vertically-placed flex groove in the midsole section which is essential in guiding the runner's foot to mimic the gait pattern naturally. It creates a smoother and more balanced heel-to-toe transition.

Utilized in the midsole area is the Ignite foam. This material lies in the forefoot and heel section. Puma made this component of the shoe to deliver high rebound cushioning. It also provides a more durable underfoot protection.

Along with the Ignite foam is the articulated Chevron grooves. It is strategically designed to improve the rebound properties of the shoe and to increase energy return.

For enhanced underfoot comfort, the moulded EVA sockliner is utilized into the Puma Ignite Dual Shift. This technology is significant in giving the wearer a better and comfortable running experience.

Upper

Integrated into the shoe is the Shift mesh upper. This breathable material has a fresh and great-looking design that is versatile enough to go on the roads.

The Shift mesh upper comes with the heel clip. It eliminates the possibility of heel slip. It also provides a more secure fit.
