Updates to Puma Speed 300 Ignite 2

  • The Puma Speed 300 Ignite 2 is a road-running shoe classified under the brand’s Speed Series. The design of this shoe is geared towards competitive running, similar to the original version. The Speed 300 Ignite 2 is ideal for runners who have a medium to high arch.
  • The shoe retains its minimalist appearance and heel-to-toe drop, but its overall structure allows it to have a lighter weight than the first Speed 300 Ignite. Regarding looks, the outsole has the most noticeable update.
  • Made from lightweight mesh, the upper provides a seamless and precise fit. It also has a lace-up design that brings a more secure fit compared to its predecessor.
  • The midsole consists of IGNITE, Puma’s PU foam cushioning. It works by dispersing impact forces while ensuring responsiveness at an optimum level. It sits on an injection-molded rubber compound that enhances the cushioning and durability, as well as enabling efficient traction for a smoother toe-off.

Puma Speed 300 Ignite 2 size and fit

The Speed 300 Ignite 2 has a standard running shoe length. The construction of the shoe permits runners with narrow-to-medium foot volumes. The width profiles are available in D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

The outsole consists of a blown rubber compound that is injection-molded, making the shoe lightweight, but not at the expense of efficient traction. The outsole also gives a bounciness that equals a responsive ride.

The EverTrack material that wraps the outsole makes for a durable shoe, especially in the high-wear areas.

Midsole

Featuring Puma’s signature IGNITE foam, the top side of the dual-layer midsole lends a dynamic fit. IGNITE works by dispersing the impact generated from the foot-strike, producing an energized stride.

The forefoot includes Propulsion Zone+, a nylon-engineered element that propels the runner forward, resulting in a reflexive toe-off and a faster running speed.

With the molded DSC Supreme sock liner, there is an instant comfort upon step-in. This insole also provides a smoother underfoot feel.

Upper

The 2nd version of the Speed 300 Ignite has a seamless upper that’s made from lightweight mesh, implementing a breathable and relaxed sensation all around the foot.

Similar to its predecessor, there are synthetic overlays on the midfoot area to supply a supportive structure for the foot. The overlays are covered with reflective materials to encourage visibility while running in low-light conditions.

The traditional lace-up closure involves a lace-leverage that goes around the foot, serving as a lining of the heel collar. This implement is meant to give an even more secure fit as the runner tightens the laces.
