Excellent flexibility of the Puma Flexracer outsole

The outsole is the signature Puma in a running shoe. It has full-contact rubber with several grooves stretching from the heel to the forefoot for excellent flexibility. Much of the shoe’s flexibility is because of the pliable sole and outsole.

Puma covers the underfoot with a mix of blown rubber for traction and carbon rubber for better durability. The outsole of this shoe is not far from the Nike Revolution 4 when it comes to durability and flexibility.

Improved transitions with the Puma Flexracer midsole

An industry-grade injection-molded EVA spans the length of the midsole. It is quite durable and delivers enough responsive cushioning to pick up speed. It is full length so there are improved transitions from the heel to the forefoot.
