Puma Hybrid Runner v2: Basic, not boring
The exceptional performance of the original Hybrid Runner goes up a notch in the second iteration of this Puma running shoe. This version retains the “hybrid” midsole that combines two of their well-known technologies: the NRGY beads and the IGNITE foam.
Who should buy the Hybrid Runner v2 from Puma
The Hybrid Runner v2 works best with neutral pronators, as well as runners with moderate to high arches. Despite being available only in men’s sizes, the Puma Hybrid Runner v2 is versatile enough to suit both men and women.
What it's for
This running shoe is perfect for everyday use. Its plush, comfortable cushioning also makes it suitable for marathons. In addition, the functionality of the Hybrid Runner v2 extends beyond running, as it is a remarkable casual wear.
Puma Hybrid Runner v2 vs. Puma Hybrid Rocket Runner
One of the most popular shoe models in the Hybrid collection of Puma is the Hybrid Rocket Runner. While both running shoes feature the unique composition of NRGY and IGNITE in the midsole, they do have significant contrasts:
- While the Hybrid Runner v2 comes in a traditional shoe structure, the Hybrid Rocket Runner features a deconstructed platform. This might be more appealing to wearers who want more flexibility in their step.
- The Hybrid Rocket Runner is a slip-on shoe, but it has two sets of laces that run across each side of the shoe, aiming for a more secure hold. Meanwhile, the Hybrid Runner v2 retains the classic lacing system to support the foot from the upper.
