Who should buy the Puma Ignite evoKnit Lo
The Puma Ignite evoKnit Lo comes in both men’s and women’s sizes. The men’s version is true to size while the women’s version runs large. That said, female wearers are advised to get a half or full size smaller than their usual size. It is also recommended to try the shoe in person to get a secure and comfortable fit. This footwear from Puma is a solid choice if:
- You are into intense fitness activities that you need a shoe that can endure multisurface settings.
- Heel stability has been a problem lately that you prefer a shoe that prevents the foot to wobble during workouts.
Updates to the Puma Ignite evoKnit Lo
- Instead of a high-cut design, the upper of this model comes up below the ankle. This low-cut silhouette gives the ankles more freedom to move.
Outsole for multidirectional maneuvers
The bottom of the Ignite evoKNIT Lo makes use of a rubber material. This compound is designed to be hard-wearing and flexible.
The shoe features Chevron flex grooves throughout the entire bottom to compensate for the relatively thick platform, and to support multi-directional movements, as well as natural forefoot bending. A transition line that goes from the heel to the forefoot mimics the natural gait, potentially giving a smooth ride.
The EverTrack+ reinforces the heel and forefoot areas. This technology is made of a high abrasion rubber that can withstand the grueling demands of indoor or outdoor training.
The Ignite foam comprises the midsole of this Puma trainer. This polyurethane (PU) compound is lightweight, durable and firm. It absorbs shock by compressing lightly and quickly returning to its original form, resulting in a quick push off from the ground.
The trainer employs a molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (IMEVA) insole. This foam adds another layer of comfort and shock absorption.
The Puma Ignite evoKnit Lo's upper
The Puma Ignite evoKNIT Lo features a three-colored knitted upper that stretches and conforms to the shape of the foot. This type of material is breathable and capable of keeping the foot-chamber well-ventilated. It also keeps the foot adequately supported during workouts.
Seen in the forefoot area are bonded overlays. They protect the knitted material from abrasion while also maintaining the shape of the toe box.
Straps against wobble
A TPU piece and a midfoot support strap serve as an external heel counter. It locks the back of the foot to the midsole and prevents it from slipping or wobbling inside the shoe.
Snug lacing system
Flat laces pass through the eyelets on the midfoot strap. Pulling the laces draws in the TPU unit at the back and delivers a more secure fit.
Quick slip-on action
At the back of the collar is a pull tab that allows the wearer to put on the shoe quickly.
