Updates to Puma Voltage Disc

  • The Puma Voltage Disc is a running shoe that has an appealing look that’s modern and sporty. The upper unit doesn’t include a traditional lacing system. Instead, the fit is adjusted by a twist-to-turn component in the area where the tongue of the shoe should be. Turning this unit immediately tightens or loosens the fit.
  • The upper has a smooth disposition because it doesn’t utilize stitched-on layers and other nuances. A breathable mesh with a conformable foam hugs the foot snugly and securely. Continued use allows the material to follow the exact shape of the wearer’s foot, thus giving a customized fit that’s tuned to the needs of the runner.
  • The underfoot experience is soft and responsive. Standard Ethylene vinyl acetate provides full-length cushioning. Beneath it are semi-circular pods that are filled with air. They function like pistons, compressing when weight is placed on them, then returning to shape when the pressure is removed. They’re meant to heighten the comfort felt by the runner.

Puma Voltage Disc size and fit

The Puma Voltage Disc has a standard running shoe length. The available width for both the men and women’s versions is medium. It accommodates those with medium sized feet. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe closely follows the natural curve of the human foot.


Outsole

Durable carbon rubber covers the uniquely-shaped cushioning unit of the Puma Voltage Disc. It protects the individual cushioning pods from wear and tear. The forefoot area even has a dedicated layer of this rubber to help in supporting the toe-off.


Midsole

Ethylene vinyl acetate serves as the platform on which the foot rests when wearing the Puma Voltage Disc. It’s comfortable against the underside of the foot and it doesn’t break down easily.

The Voltage Technology uses pods to serve as small cushioning pillars. They’re filled with air. They compress when weight is put upon them, and then return to their original shape when weight is removed. This system helps in making the heel-to-toe transitions smooth and comfortable.


Upper

A breathable mesh material makes up the main upper cover system of the Puma Voltage Disc. It allows air to maintain ventilation for the wearer’s foot.

A conformable foam is placed underneath the mesh material. It cushions the dimensions of the foot. It also follows the natural shape of the foot, thus making the coverage feel customized and attuned to the individual wearing it.

The Laceless Disc Fit System is a unit that replaces traditional shoelaces. Turing this circular component to the left loosens the fit, while turning it right tightens it.
