Puma Magnify Nitro: Stable and springy 

Made with a two-part midsole — Nitro foam (on top) and Profoam Lite (underneath) — the Puma Magnify Nitro sure does magnify both support and energy return:

  • The Nitro foam is much softer and bouncier, cushioning the foot in each step while amping up responsiveness. 
  • Meanwhile, the Profoam Lite is much firmer, keeping the strides surefooted. 

Add in the shoe's full-coverage outsole, form-hugging upper, and raised midsole (in the midfoot), you can't get more stable than this!

Who and what is it for?

This shoe is for neutral runners looking for a daily trainer that's fantastic in eating up middle to long-distance efforts on the road. It's excellent in slow to medium paces, but also has some pop to go full tempo. 

And if you just want a shoe for daily mileage or recovery runs, this has got you covered.
