The Puma Ignite Limitless is a street-ready design launched to cater to the growing demand for fresh pairs and running-inspired kicks being dropped today. The clam-shell construction of the upper is comprised of a four-way stretch Ariaprene material that hugs the feet comfortable yet maintaining a breathable feel.

The sock-like fit at the collar comes with a pull tab for easy on and off while the Thermoplastic polyurethane cage and a forefoot strap offer extra support at the back and front of this sneaker that is provided in medium width. The low-top shoe, however, is issued only in men’s sizes 6 to 16 with half-sizes available for an accurate fit. Ladies may opt to go 1.5 sizes down to purchase a shoe in men’s sizing.

With its luxurious detailing, the Puma Ignite Limitless Swirl offers more than the usual performance running features as it combines the athletic qualities, bold detailing, and aesthetics of the Puma lifestyle sneaker. With Puma designers experimenting on new silhouettes and modern Puma streetwear elements, the result is a street-style lifestyle runner that does not scrimp on technical features much more on the design elements.

The sock-like fit of the clamshell construction comprised of the Ariaprene upper gives this design enough styling chops. With its white and black colorway options, the ability to pair this design with a lot of casual clothing allows one to experiment with that is being embraced wholeheartedly by the millennial generation. Pair these cool kicks with solid colors of track pants, or a jogger, or loose-fitting shorts for that casual swag.

The technology of a performance runner is applied in this lifestyle sneaker released in 2018 by Puma. The Puma Ignite Limitless Swirl provides premium cushioning and energy return with full-length Ignite Foam technology embedded in the midsole.

Regarding support, the low-top kick has a TPU Kurim midfoot cage and a TPU heel clip that is supported by a gore forefoot strap for a complete lockdown and durability. An injection-molded EVA midsole keeps the entire sneaker lightweight with the wearer feeling less fatigue even after spending a long time while wearing the shoe.

Combining elements of modern streetwear and a performance runner, the Puma Ignite Limitless Swirl offers advanced sneaker technology in a street-style fashion. The use of new technologies in Puma sneakers has been in the pipeline for the German brand which already has more than 70 years history of shoemaking that resulted to several iconic silhouettes in running, soccer, basketball as well as kicks that have shaped modern hip-hop, punk, and rock culture.

With new technology and designs rolled out in the past years, many sneaker critics have welcomed Puma’s aggressive drops of sneakers and performance running sneakers that took years of development and product design.  The brand first launched the Puma Ignite Limitless silhouette in January 2017 as part of their “Run the Streets” campaign which rolled out street-style designs for their performance running shoes.  The modern trainers were endorsed by Canadian singer and songwriter Weeknd further helped give the low-top shoe a boost in sales.

With superior track-ready technology, the Puma Ignite Limitless Swirl is a fitting follow-up a year later in January 2018 to the successful Puma Ignite Limitless sneaker endorsed by the Weeknd. The silhouette comes in a fresh white or black colorway and differs by having a trendy outsole design and a neoprene material used in the upper.

  • The Thermoplastic Polyurethane or TPU Kurim midfoot cage comes with a heel clip for added durability while a gore forefoot strap adds support to the forefoot.
  • A high-shine full-length TPU jewel piece runs above the tooling for extra support and sleek
  • Crystal rubber pods at the bottom with a swirl-like design at the outsole makes this design aesthetically enhanced with a fresh, trendy, and modern look compared to the Puma Ignite Limitless launched a year earlier.
  • An injection-molded Ethylene Vinyl Acetate midsole assures lightweight performance and preventing fatigue.
  • A heel pull tab at the back and sock-like attached collar and tongue for quick on and off.
  • Puma branding details can be found at the attached tongue and forefoot strap while a Cat logo can be seen at the TPU heel cage.
