Puma Riaze Prowl: Stability in motion
This trainer is designed after Puma's running shoe line. Thus, you can expect that the Riaze Prowl uses some of the same technologies like the Cell cushioning. The Puma Cell uses interlocked hexagonal cells under the heel, which works in two ways: it absorbs impact when you land on your heel, and steadies the feet by spreading wearer's weight evenly.
Because of the split-sole construction of this workout shoe, it is flexible in the forefoot. This design is suitable for running, plyometrics, lunges, or planks. Meanwhile, the flat and slightly elevated heel keeps the user steady during weight training.
The unique lacing design of the Puma Riaze Prowl contributes to the foothold. The webbed eyelets are set lower, so the laces encompass a broader area. When the shoestrings are tightened, they amplify the lateral support, which is helpful when you're performing dynamic workouts.
Puma Riaze Prowl versions
The Puma Riaze Prowl comes in two other versions:
- The Riaze Prowl SL features the same construction and technologies, but instead of knit, it uses synthetic leather for the upper.
- The other variant, the Puma Riaze Prowl Graphic, is almost identical to the SL, but with a print at the back panel resembling a lotus flower.
