The Speed Ignite NetFit is a fresh new concept for Puma that offers a myriad of lacing options to give the best upper fit possible. The upper consists of a soft, stretchy inner booty that wraps the foot just below the ankle.
Over the booty is a mesh net that’s covered with holes designed to offer free range to customize how you can lace the shoe. The lace throat only has holes at its top so the whole forefoot is available to customize the lacing pattern. The midsole is the effective Ignite blown TPU foam that Puma has been using for several years. Here they’ve used the same setup as seen in last season’s Speed 500. The outersole is a carbon rubber heel with a blown rubber strip down the center under the metatarsals for just a little softer feel at toe-off. The medial side is toughened foam, which is sufficient for the biomechanically efficient. The customizable fit, resilient midsole, and good durability earned the Speed Ignite NetFit our award for Best New Shoe.
Testers: ”Roomy forefoot fit, fine for the toes. Lacing options make the fit a non-issue for my foot. Really responsive midsole, good cushioned feel.”
