Updates to Puma Ignite Limitless SR

  • The Puma Ignite Limitless SR is a budget-friendly running shoe that’s designed for those who want to have stylish apparel for their athletic activities. It features a street-ready façade that caters to fashionistas and casual shoe enthusiasts.
  • A slip-on construction allows the foot to have a smooth and seamless in-shoe experience. Shoelaces help in making the fit more secure.
  • The underfoot platform makes use of the IGNITE foam. This full-length material offers responsive cushioning, shock attenuation and energized forefoot lifts. A rubber sole with a waffle pattern gives traction and protection against abrasion.

Puma Ignite Limitless SR size and fit

The Puma Ignite Limitless SR was designed using the standard measurements. It can welcome the usual choices of runners when it comes to size. The width profile of the women’s version is B – Medium while the men’s iteration has the D – Medium option. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe mimics the natural curvature of the human foot.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Puma Ignite Limitless SR utilizes a rubber compound to protect the midsole foam from the debilitating effects of surface contact and continued use. It’s also responsible for doling out traction, which is an essential aspect of performance footwear.

A waffle pattern allows the outsole to provide extra traction through mildly protruding gridlines. The depressed spaces between the crisscross outline make the platform more adherent to the natural bending capacity of the wearer’s foot.

The Puma cat logo graces the medial side of the external pad.

Midsole

The IGNITE foam makes up the Puma Ignite Limitless SR’s midsole unit. It runs the entire length of the shoe, providing support for the whole underfoot. It’s designed to be steady, comfortable and long-lasting. Moreover, it absorbs impact shock and converts the energy to kinetic force that the runner can use to propel the foot forward.

A sock liner is placed above the primary foam layer. It adds some more cushioning. It can be removed or replaced with a custom insert.

Upper

A form-fitting textile makes up the upper unit of the Puma Ignite Limitless SR. It wraps around the foot securely, but it’s not made to restrict movement. It accommodates the inherent flexing capacity of the muscles, tendons, and joints.

A slip-on configuration allows the runner to wear this running shoe quickly. The smooth and stretchy collar easily opens up to accommodate the foot.

Though it doesn’t have a traditional tongue unit, the Limitless SR still has a lacing system. The shoelaces manipulate the upper to deliver a snug in-shoe experience.

Panels are stitched onto the sides of the upper. These prominent synthetic layers are there to hold the midfoot and prevent it from wobbling.

An external counter clamps the heel and prevents it from accidentally or involuntarily exiting the foot-chamber.

Two pull tabs are added to the silhouette. One is placed on the instep while the other is located on the back portion of the collar. These two loops make it easier for the runner to wear or remove the shoe.

Some sections of the upper—such as the collar, the instep, and the sides—are reinforced with stitches. Such an arrangement staves off early material breakdown or sagging.
