- Crafted for women who do not want to sacrifice style while working out, Puma combines sportiness and daintiness in the Prowl Alt Satin model. This iteration of the Puma Prowl Alt retains the overall silhouette, but the material used in the upper has been updated. The entire upper is now made of satin, a soft and smooth fabric that gives the shoe its unique look.
- Though the lacing system remains the same, the laces have been replaced with satin as well. The wide-set eyelets ensure that the laces properly wrap the sides of the midfoot for a secure lockdown.
- As for the sole unit, the midsole keeps the injection molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (IMEVA) foam technology for superior underfoot cushioning. The high-wear areas of the outsole are still lined with rubber pods that add traction and durability to the unit.
The Puma Prowl Alt Satin caters to the shape of women’s feet and only comes in female sizes. Like most workout shoes from Puma, it is only available in a B - Medium width profile. The dynamic lacing system is designed to deliver wrapping support for the steadiness of the foot during explosive workouts.
The midsole of the Puma Prowl Alt Satin also doubles as the outsole. This compound is created to be durable to endure the wear and tear of cross-training. It is also flexible to promote natural foot flexion.
Hard-wearing areas such as the forefoot and the heel are reinforced with rubber pods. They protect the midsole and amplify the traction of the underside. The rubber at the forefoot extends to the front, protecting the toes from bumps during sled pushes and burpees.
The IMEVA foam is utilized for the midsole of the Puma Prowl Alt Satin. This cushioning platform is engineered to be soft to attenuate shock and prevent discomfort or injuries to the foot and lower extremities. It is flexible to accommodate natural foot movements. The unit is also devised to be responsive to thwart foot fatigue when training for long periods.
Inside is a soft foam sockliner. This component adds another layer of protection to the underfoot for heightened comfort.
The Puma Prowl Alt Satin employs a satin upper. This material is smooth and soft and provides the trainer with a delicate vibe. The inside is lined with soft foam which gives the façade its form and imparts a snug and comfortable fit.
The alternative lacing system features webbed eyelets that are spaced wide apart. The eyelets stem from in between the base of the upper and the midsole. This construction allows the laces to hug the sides of the foot when they are cinched, enhancing the lateral support.
The tongue and the collar are both lightly padded to avoid irritation to the instep and ankle areas, respectively. They also enhance the locked-down feel of the upper to avert accidental footwear removal.
