  • 68 / 100 | Aravind Memana

    Ignite to Blaze

    I paid a visit to all the leading brand showrooms in town before finalizing on the the FAAS series to be better performer than this model. Weighing around 320 gms, this shoe is heavy mostly due to its heavy padding (one of the best I have ever used).

    Fluorescent green was offered under 40% discount for around 5000 INR($80). It was the only shoe available for my size. The retail price is above 10000($140), a high price point for the features offered.

    It is highly recommended to Puma to conduct bench marking of its competitors. Will be awaiting for better products and better lineup in the near future.

Updates to Puma Speed 600 Ignite

  • Puma’s fast line of shoes gets more muscle in the Speed 600 Ignite. The slightly larger chunk of midsole delivers sufficient cushioning for the rigors of daily training while the Ignite foam remains to be as responsive as ever.
  • The Everfit technology is included in the shoe, which greatly helps with the lockdown. Without using any kind of fancy lacing techniques, the upper hugs the foot in comfort and security despite the very minimal overlay.
  • An incredibly breathable run is there for the runner as the upper uses a mesh with very large holes. As the mesh covers almost the entire upper, a sweat-free and very cool ride happens every time out.

Puma Speed 600 Ignite size and fit

The fit of the Puma 600 Ignite is very similar to most trainers. It is standard from the heel to the forefoot with more than enough wiggle room for the toes to splay. The shoe is designed to pile on the miles so the toe box gets enough space to accommodate mid-run swelling with ease. Medium is the available width of this shoe. Sizes are accurate in options 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.


Outsole

The outsole is very similar to racing flat version of this series. It has several forefoot grooves for flexibility. Puma covers the outsole with durable Evertrack+ with some blown rubber in the middle of the forefoot for added traction. A decoupled heel helps with the transition from the back to the front and isolates shock.


Midsole

A dual-layer midsole with Ignite foam in the heel offers excellent cushioning with great responsiveness. The slightly larger midsole provides the plush feel that does not take away the shoe’s responsiveness or excellent ground feedback. It also helps with the durability for miles upon miles of training.


Upper

The seamless upper is mostly knitted mesh and hugs the foot really well. As the mesh is made of very large holes, there is maximum breathability in this shoe. Puma’s reliance on its patented logo as the main midfoot hold continues in the 600. Reflective materials are also found on the overlays for nighttime or early dawn running. A molded Ortholite Sockliner greets runners with enhanced comfort and fit.
