Good to know

  • The Puma Persist XT is a pair of workout shoes for men. Its cleatie style makes it easy to wear, but a lacing system allows users to tighten the fit if needed. Its mesh upper ensures that the foot chamber remains fresh throughout the training session.
  • The midsole is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam which cushions foot landings while the SoftFoam+ insole enhances underfoot comfort. As for the outsole, the forefoot and the heel are protected by a layer of rubber.

Made to accommodate the unique shape of men’s feet, the Puma Persist XT comes in US sizes 7 to 14, including half and full sizes. The width is only available in a D - Medium profile while the laces and the stretchy strap enhance the snugness at the midfoot.

The outsole of the Puma Persist XT is crafted from rubber. This compound is durable and features a tread pattern that facilitates multi-directional flexibility and traction.

A full-length EVA foam serves as the midsole of the Puma Persist XT. This lightweight platform attenuates shock.

Inside the trainer is the SoftFoam+ insole. This sockliner amplifies underfoot cushioning for long-lasting comfort.

The Puma Persist XT features a cleatie construction. Though it is a slip-on footwear, a lacing system allows users to tighten the midfoot fit. An elastic midfoot strap also helps with the snug fit.

The seamless mesh upper keeps the foot locked in place. It also facilitates aeration of the interior.

A similar model to consider is the Puma Enzo. It shares the same cleatie style and sole construction.
