Who should buy the Puma Fierce Strap
What distinguishes the Fierce Strap from other versions, as the name implies, is the presence of straps. The shoe also utilizes full-length cushioning to resist impact. This workout footwear from Puma is a solid option if:
- You are after a pair that can be used all day long but are still comfortable to wear.
- You have a wide forefoot profile.
The Fierce Strap features solid rubber outsole pods that are designed to be virtually flat to keep the foot grounded, especially during weight training. The rubber is inherently durable and resilient and has anti-slip properties which deliver adequate traction.
It has pivot points located in the big toe and heel areas. They help the wearer perform smooth turns and direction changes.
Flex grooves allow the sole to accommodate fast and dynamic movements. They also follow the natural bending of the foot as it moves throughout the activity.
The Puma Fierce Strap employs a full-length foam midsole. The compound is designed to be lightweight and durable. Its springy characteristic creates rebound and allows the unit to return to its original form if it gets bent. The foam also absorbs impact to prevent foot, ankle and knee injuries.
Part of the midsole extends upwards, in the medial and lateral sides of the heel to enclose the back of the foot. The cradle-like structure keeps the back of the foot anchored to the midsole and prevents heel slippage while the user is in motion.
Snug ventilated upper
A combination of synthetic and mesh materials make up the upper unit. The mesh fabric keeps the foot ventilated while the synthetic material wraps the toe box and part of the midfoot. This design embraces the foot and keeps it locked in while the shoe is in use.
Unique lacing system
It doesn’t have a traditional lacing system, but it does feature two straps. One of the straps anchors the tongue to the back of the shoe while the other locks the synthetic material on the forefoot in place.
The Puma Fierce Strap features a high-top cleatie construction with pull tabs on the exaggerated tongue and collar to make it easier to put on.
