The Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD is one of Puma’s top of the line sprint spikes. The shoe is a replica of Usain Bolt’s spikes when he won gold in a 100-meter event during the 2013 World Championships in Moscow. Hence the name of the shoe model.

The Puma Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD features a microfiber Clarino synthetic upper which provides a glove-like fit. This seamless upper construction minimizes irritations and allows for barefoot usage. It has an internally bonded suede and soft on-skin-feel microfiber that ensures optimum comfort, especially when worn barefoot.

The shoe uses the innovative Puma KMS-LITE midsole shoe technology. It is 30% lighter than standard EVA and reduces shoe weight up to 10%. The KMS-LITE  provides better cushioning and makes the show more lightweight for better performance.

The Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD from Puma is available in the market in men’s medium D sizing. These track spikes have been designed with microfiber synthetic upper. This gives the shoe its glove-like fit as it hugs and locks the wearer’s foot onto the plate for optimum support.

A microfiber suede lining on the inside offers a soft-skin feel for additional snug and comfort.

The shoe is finished off with asymmetrical lacing that helps customize the fit to the wearer’s liking.

The outsole of the Puma Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD features a Pebax spike plate. It holds the eight-pin configuration in the forefoot area for reliable grip and traction. This pin configuration has four in a line across the ball of the foot and another four surrounding the toes. Such pin set up helps propel the wearer quicker and with much speed.

Same as with the popular Adidas Distancestar, these track spikes use ¼ inch Pyramid spike pins. Thes spike pins dig into the track propelling the wearer forward with much speed and power.

The shoe’s outsole is also made to be very durable and robust, allowing it to take all the impact and traction.

One of the best features of the Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD is found in its midsole. It is equipped it one of Puma’s innovative midsole technology, the KMS-LITE. It reduces the shoe’s weight by being 30% lighter than the usual EVA midsoles. It is an advanced midsole material that enhances the shoe’s performance by being light on the feet.

A die-cut Eco Ortholite sockliner is also added in the underfoot for a more comfortable ride and feel. It is cemented to the Strobel boards, allowing the shoe to remain low in profile. It also acts as a shock absorption feature that spares the wearers’ joints as they strike down hard and fast.

The Puma Bolt Evospeed Sprint LTD’s upper is designed with a Clarino synthetic material that is very aerodynamic. It wraps the foot in its supple comfort while at the same time anchoring it to the plate to reduce in-shoe slippage.

A soft microfiber lining is also added to the shoe’s upper for that next to skin feel. It is very breathable and comfortable, allowing for a more enjoyable barefoot usage. 

The shoe does not only perform great, but it also looks that way with its iridescent finish for better visibility even when racing fast on the track. The iconic Puma logo is also present on the tongue, and an updated formstrip resembling a lightning bolt adds to the shoe’s flair and vibrance.

Finally, the shoe is fitted with an asymmetrical lace-closure system that offers both improved fit and comfort.
