Puma Velocity Nitro: Versatile performance trainer

As Puma reemerges on the scene, the brand gives athletes a new running shoe to like. The Velocity Nitro is a lightweight, "jack-of-all-trades" shoe that can handle any distance. It has the responsiveness, cushioning, and grip needed for an enjoyable ride.

Best for:

  • daily, long-distance runs
  • quick-paced training
  • recovery days

What makes the Velocity Nitro likable?

  • Responsive ride - The Puma Nitro midsole foam provides a bouncy feel and lasting underfoot cushioning in a lightweight package.
  • Reliable grip - The PumaGrip material delivers all-surface traction and durability.
  • Breathable, secure coverage - The mesh upper keeps the feet sweat-free and offers a customized fit.
  • Reflectivity: Reflective elements are strategically placed for added visibility on low-light conditions.

Velocity Nitro vs. Deviate Nitro

The Deviate Nitro is another model in the Puma Nitro collection. It is a carbon-plated, race-ready counterpart of the Velocity. It also has a much thicker midsole, making it more suitable for marathon and ultra running.
