Updates to Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2

  • The Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2 is an update to a fledgling series of road shoes that are meant for neutral pronators. It makes use of an updated design to provide modern aesthetics to those who desire it. Contrary to the stitched-on strap that’s on the original Mega NRGY Turbo, the 2nd iteration features a seamless side cage for lateral steadiness.
  • The midsole unit of this running shoes from Puma features amalgamated e-thermoplastic polyurethane pellets which are meant to provide invigorated cushioning throughout the running session. A rubber exterior acts as a shield against the abrasive nature of the roads.

Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2 size and fit

The Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2 has a standard running shoe length. Runners are expected to choose one that adheres to their usual sizing choices. When it comes to width, the options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of this shoe accommodates the natural shape of the human foot.

Outsole

Rubber serves as the outsole unit of the Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2. This material covers the entire underside of the platform, shielding it from abrasion. It also doles out traction for surface control.

A ridged pattern allows the rubber to provide more grip on the surfaces. Such a design helps in the manipulation of movement over the paths.

Midsole

The NGRY cushioning in the Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2 involves amalgamated e-thermoplastic polyurethane pellets. The full-length sole unit that is born out of the merging process aims to provide a springy performance on the roads.

A soft sock liner is added and placed on top of the primary midsole material. The purpose of this add-on is to add a bit more cushioning while preserving foot flexibility.

Upper

The upper unit of the Puma Mega NRGY Turbo 2 features a lightweight mesh for support and flexibility. There are ventilation pores all over it that permit air into the foot-chamber.

The EverFit lacing system is comprised of semi-flat laces, two pairs of fabric eyelets for added midfoot security, and a net-like cage on the lateral and medial sides. These elements work together to ensure a snug yet unhindered experience.

The padded tongue and collar provide cushioning to the ankles, the heel, and the instep. These parts of the façade also prevent in-shoe wobbling.
