Who should buy the PUMA Mode XT
The PUMA Mode XT is perceived as a girly trainer that has both the appeal and the functionalities by being just as ready to hit the gym as it is to shine in the streets. It is a solid option if:
- You are looking for a shoe that could fully satisfy your fondness for fashion and at the same time offers exceptional comfort and support when worn for workouts.
- You have been sustaining ankle chafing recently and you need a pair that helps prevent such discomfort.
Multi-direction outsole traction
A zoned rubber outsole is found at the shoe’s underside. It features three separate sections of different shapes and sizes.
This design helps to provide effective traction in each part of the unit no matter what direction the foot takes.
This part of PUMA Mode XT catches the eye with its provocative construction. The unit is split into three puffed segments with deep flex grooves in between. That way the foot receives more freedom when bending forward.
The primary function of the midsole lies in its ability to absorb shock upon impact and restore its shape quickly in preparation for the next step. This is fulfilled by the combination of the full-length PROFOAM material and the HYBRID Foam. Both are described as lightweight and responsive components.
The Mode XT uses a soft and padded fabric to wrap the foot in a cozy yet supportive manner. This material has a lightweight characteristic to it and features ventilation pores to keep the interiors fresh.
The exaggerated heel collar at the back also contributes to the splendor. It is generously padded to keep the ankle comfortable and free of chafing throughout the workout session.
The PUMA Mode XT's lacing system
The lacing system secures the fit on the shoe’s instep. Even though it runs underneath the tongue, it still functions as a regular lace-up closure which can be adjusted and tightened. A different type of textile is used to accent the shoe’s tongue. With its silky gloss and pleated style, it adds an opulent vibe to the footwear.
Completing the ensemble is the proprietary TPU PUMA Formstrip on the outer side. It serves to represent the brand as well as adding a touch of lateral support.
