Review: Puma Ignite Spikeless Shoes
Honestly though, the real story of these shoes is the Puma Ignite foam on the inside of this shoe. It is a high density foam that offers extreme cushion. This is their first spikeless shoe with Ignite foam and it is awesome. It is soft enough to really reduce impact on the bottom of my feet. If you have firm ground conditions these will be one of the most comfortable shoe you can wear because of the soft midsole. Even on soft ground they will feel good, just maybe not at noticeable. While the Ignite foam is really soft, it doesn’t squish too much so that your shoes feel sloppy or you lose connection with the ground.
The out of the box comfort of these shoes comes from the Ignite foam, but also from the uppers which have a neoprene sock liner around the heel. This is huge in offering 18 hole walking comfort instantly. There is no heel rub or slip because of this design feature. The rest of the uppers is a supple water-proof leather. It is mostly void of seams, which creates comfort with fear of weird rub spots on your foot. Their sizing is pretty much the same as others, 9.5 works in these like most other brands do for me. I do like the additional width in the toe box area that Puma has added over the last couple seasons.
The look is a perfect blend of classic and trendy. If you see the shoe in black and white, it looks like a classic golf shoe, but then when you add the splash of Puma colors you see how this will appeal to a wide audience, both young and old. I got the white, blue and green shoes which are one of Puma’s “go-to” color schemes for this year.
If you are looking for an incredibly comfortable spikeless shoe right out of the box, the Puma Ignite shoes are as good as they come. They blend together all the best work Puma has done in the last couple years; Ignite foam, Gripzone traction, soft heel collar and classic/trendy look all at the same time.
