The PUMA Ignite Running Shoe Reviews Are In!


The PUMA Ignite Running Shoes first catch eyes with their noticeably cool, sleek style. But can they perform when practicing fast sprints and long rungs? Their new, cushy foam midsole boasts that it gives energy back after each stride. They call it “IGNITE”. We sent out a few pairs to our running and style community to get some feedback on the tech, fit, and overall look. Here’s what they had to say – and show!

“The PUMA Ignite has easily become my go-to runner/training shoe. When you have a co-sign athlete like Usain, you know the shoe is going to perform well. It looks great on-foot and is extremely comfortable when laced up. Excited to see new colorways and performance models from PUMA in the future.”

“I dig the new PUMA Ignites! Aesthetically in all of their colorways, they look dope. But even more importantly, they feel amazing! They charge your feet up, giving a energized feel to the run!

“PUMA has never caught my attention until I tried on the Ignites. They give you the soft support you need for running and the stylish appearance for a casual hangout. I’m surprised they don’t cost more. I’ll definitely be adding another pair to my closet.”

“The PUMA Ignite. The name itself defines what you feel when you slip these on. It sparks a fire in you to defeat all obstacles. Run across country with an intense purpose. The perfect combination between lightweight and comfort.”

“The PUMA Ignite running shoe is very unique. While it looks like a street-sneaker, you would never guess it’s PUMA’s most responsive running shoe ever. This shoe is perfect for everyday, transitioning easily from running to grocery shopping, gym to errands.”

“I used to hold PUMA in my head next to motor sports or the shoes my pops rocked back in his high school days. My mind has now be turned! Sure I’m a sucker for purple, so these kicks already had a one-up there … Then there’s the super cute low-profile design that I’ll still be able to rock into the colder months later this year. I’ll be able to rely on these sweets all summer from music festivals to 10ks and and all the brunch dates in between!” – Shelby

“The Ignite foam midsole coupled with the ForEver foam in the heel, and chevron flex grooves, provide a high energy return cushion setup that caters to the runner who likes to feel their cushion. The PUMA Ignite provides value in its durability; it will last you a long time…” – JAHRONMON
