Notable elements of the Puma Ignite Limitless Initiate

- The Puma Ignite Limitless Initiate is a trail running shoe that offers a combination of style and performance. This neutral running shoe brings a new flavor to the Puma Limitless shoe series. 

- The shoe features the rugged trail-inspired outsole that offers maximum gripping ability and traction on various surfaces. 

- Injection-molded EVA foam (IMEVA) is integrated into the midsole unit to provide a firm yet flexible ride. The IMEVA cushioning is lightweight and very responsive to the foot. 

- The upper section utilizes a ripstop fabric material that is highly resistant to tearing and reaping. This material is also lightweight and breathable.

Size and fit

Puma Ignite Limitless Initiate utilizes stretchable shoelaces that allow the runner to conveniently customize the looseness or tightness of the shoe. Another component affecting the fit of the shoe is the gusseted tongue, which provides additional comfort and protection. 

This running gear uses the standard shoe measurement to accommodate the usual choice of consumers when it comes to size. However, it is recommended for runners to try on the shoe first or check the general feedback to have a picture of what to expect when it comes to size options.

Outsole

The Ignite Limitless Initiate running shoe utilizes a rugged trail-inspired outsole. This component provides optimal gripping performance for all types of weather conditions. This outsole material is also designed to protect the platform from rocks and rugged terrain. It is easy to maintain even in wet conditions. 

Midsole

For a lighter and more comfortable running experience, the designers incorporated the IMEVA midsole cushioning into the Puma Ignite Limitless Initiate. The IMEVA foam provides exceptional shock absorption and responsive ride without sacrificing durability. 

The midsole unit also features PUMA’s IGNITE foam technology. This proprietary foam is strategically placed in the heel section to provide responsive cushioning. It also offers excellent rebound and comfort to the wearer. 

Upper

Puma Ignite Limitless Initiate uses the rugged ripstop upper material which is responsible for providing a highly durable and lightweight foot covering. This material is also breathable and resistant to tear and wear. 

The upper has synthetic overlays that are made out of PU skin. PU stands for polyurethane, a material that imitates the leather. These overlays offer lasting protection and added durability. 

To provide additional protection during night runs, the shoe designers integrated a reflective detailing for visibility at night. Another shoe that incorporates reflective detailing is Adidas Solar Drive

The shoe’s gusseted tongue is designed to protect the foot from the elements of the rugged ripstop upper while stretchable shoelaces offer a customized in-shoe feel.
