Last year PUMA Golf launched the Puma Golf IGNITE FASTEN8 golf shoes. Now PUMA Golf is launching its new IGNITE ARTICULATE golf shoes. At first glance, I see that they want to help us handle the swing better.
Some previous solutions/innovations can be found in the new PUMA Golf IGNITE ARTICULATE golf shoes, such as
- PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps).
- A strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, yields energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.
PUMA Golf IGNITE ARTICULATE golf shoes – innovations
These are the new or upgraded innovations in this new PUMA Golf shoe:
- ENGINEERED ARTICULATION – Strategically engineered grooves in the outsole, midsole, and upper, allow the shoe to flex with your foot while delivering the highest level of support.
- 8-CLEAT TRACTION PATTERN – A redesigned traction pattern features eight strategically placed Tornado cleats in high-force areas that provides increased traction.
- ARTICULATING PWRCAGE – A strong and lightweight saddle that is thinner across the midfoot allows the cage to wrap securely around any foot shape delivering support and stability throughout the swing. Also, the cage has a slight increase in thickness around the lacing to provide extra lock-down support.
- EXOShell – Upper material with engineered mesh to provide structure fused underneath TPU Film that provides support and a 1-year waterproof warranty.
- IGNITE FOAM – Revolutionary and proprietary midsole foam provides energy return, responsive ride, and superior step-in comfort.
- VERSATILE PERFORMANCE LAST – A new last shape delivers excellent fit, unrivaled comfort [me: how they can prove it?], and a stylish toe-down look.
Pricing & availability
The PUMA Golf IGNITE ARTICULATE shoes ($170) are available in two models, men’s laced and men’s disc, in five colorways in sizes 7-15 (wide options are available in the lace version in select colors).
In this price category, PUMA Golf’s new IGNITE ARTICULATE golf shoes are a good choice. It is good that they are not pretending to be premium golf shoes.
