Updates to Puma Ignite Ultimate Multi
- Right out of the box, the most obvious innovation in the shoe is the 3-layered mesh. The mesh is very wide and light, which guarantees an ultra-cool run. Puma designs the upper in layers to keep the support lightweight and extremely well-ventilated. Plus, the holes in the mesh make the multi-colored upper more unique and visible.
- A very plush cushioning is available in the Ignite Ultimate Multi. Puma delivers the required responsiveness by using its proprietary Ignite Foam. Runners can experience a luxurious run with enough zip in the midsole to last the miles.
- The right flexibility is ensured as Puma also uses a very innovative outsole. Covering the entire outsole are flex grooves that provide the shoe some flex when moving from the heel to the forefoot. These flex grooves also help the transition from landing to take off.
Puma Ignite Ultimate Multi size and fit
The fit of the Ignite Ultimate Multi is generous. Puma secures the spacious fit by offering a nice hold coming from the upper. Most runners will love this fit, particularly those who want more width and volume in their shoe. Medium is the available width of the shoe. Sizes are standard in options 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
Flex grooves dominate the outsole from the heel to the forefoot. These are more articulated in the midfoot to add even more cushioning. The ever-present transition cut enhances both flexibility and transitions. Puma uses the EverTrack rubber compound for better durability.
Running from the heel to the forefoot is a large foam in the midsole called the Ignite. This gives the shoe the plush ride that is not energy-sapping because of the noticeable responsiveness. The full-length midsole works with the transition line and the midfoot grooves to deliver effortless movements from the back to the front of the foot.
The main difference between this shoe and the regular version is the multi-colored upper. Puma makes the difference more evident as it is seen through the ultra-breathable 3-layered mesh. Based on Puma’s concept, the layering of the mesh adds lightweight structure and support in an ultra-breathable design. The metallic Puma logo functions as the main overlay that deliver midfoot hold. This logo is directly connected to the heel and the other side of the shoe for almost 360 degrees of support.
