Updates to Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh

  • The Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh shares the same silhouette and most of its features with the Prowl Alt Mesh. However, the difference between these two iterations lies in the type of fabric used. The original Prowl Alt Mesh has an open-engineered mesh top with a transparent underlay while the Prowl Alt Knit Mesh employs a tightly woven fabric instead.
  • As for the cushioning unit, an ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam serves as both the outsole and the midsole of this trainer. There are rubber pods in some sections for added traction and durability.

Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh size and fit

The Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh comes in women’s US sizes 5.5 to 11, including half and full sizes in between. It accommodates a standard foot profile as it is available in a B - Medium width. It generally runs true to size and fit.

Outsole

Making up the outsole of the Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh is the EVA foam. Hardwearing areas like the toe and the heel are protected with a layer of rubber to prevent early deterioration of these sections due to abrasion.

Midsole

The Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh employs a full-length EVA midsole. This compound is lightweight and flexible, facilitating the natural heel-to-toe transition of the foot. It also absorbs impact to protect the foot.A SoftFoam insole lines the inside of this workout shoe. This component enhances underfoot comfort and prevents the foot from sliding forward while training.

Upper

A mesh textile makes up the upper of the Puma Prowl Alt Knit Mesh. The tightly knitted fabric is designed to deliver more support.

This trainer features a dynamic lacing system that uses webbed eyelets sandwiched between the upper and the sole unit. Cinching the laces not only securely locks the foot down but also enhances lateral support. Stitched at the back of the collar and the top of the tongue are fabric tabs that can be used to pull up the shoe quickly.
