Updates to Puma Phenom Lo

  • Puma launched a low-cut version of its Phenom cross-training shoe. It is aptly named as the Puma Phenom Lo because it abandoned a high-cut profile. Its design is reminiscent of its predecessor, but a number of changes have been made.
  • The upper on this model is made mostly of neoprene whereas the original one had mesh on the vamp. The neoprene collar also sits lower on the Phenom Lo and no longer has the mesh windows at the ankle area.
  • Another update is the fit adjustment system. The older variant used a hook-and-loop strap and laces, while the Phenom Lo uses laces that integrate with the mesh panel for enhanced lateral support.
  • The Phenom Lo retains the technologies used in the sole unit. It features an injection molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (IMEVA) foam for shock absorption while the underside is protected by a layer of a rubber compound which adds grip and durability to the trainer.

Puma Phenom Lo size and fit

The Puma Phenom Lo is only available in women’s sizes. Lengthwise, it follows the standard measurement of ladies’ shoes. It comes in a B - Medium width profile. The material used in the upper is designed to provide a snug fit without becoming constricted. The lace-up system connects with the side panels to offer enhanced lateral support.

Outsole

Made of a full-length rubber, the outsole of the Puma Phenom Lo is crafted to be hard-wearing and flexible. It features cutouts that form zones at the forefoot to facilitate quick direction changes. The central groove provides the outsole with side-to-side flexibility.

The herringbone tread pattern amplifies the traction offered by the rubber. It is able to grip most indoor and outdoor surfaces and keeps the foot grounded for stability.

Midsole

Similar to the original model, it employs the IMEVA foam technology. This cushioning platform is lightweight, durable, and flexible. It attenuates shock and prepares the foot for the next step. It extends upwards in the medial and lateral section of the midfoot to bring steadiness during side-to-side motions.

An extra layer of the IGNITE foam is added in the heel. This proprietary technology was engineered to be responsive and maximize energy return. The extra padding is a welcome feature during plyometric exercises and quick runs.

Upper

Similar to the original model, the Puma Phenom Lo sports a slip-on construction. It has pull tabs attached to the tongue and the collar which makes on-and-off wear easy.

Though the footwear does not have a movable tongue, it still utilizes a lacing system for fit adjustment. The laces integrate with mesh panels on either side of the midfoot to deliver a locked-down fit and enhanced lateral support.
