Criteria Used to Evaluate the Best Puma Shoes

Cushion and Comfort


No matter what type of movements you make throughout your day, you want to make sure that your feet stay comfortable. Wearing shoes with proper cushion and support is proven to prevent injuries and health concerns like blisters, athlete’s foot, sprained ankles and calluses.

Having cushioned insoles built in your shoes is a great way to keep the pressure off the ball and heel areas of your foot, helping to evenly distribute weight as you move. Puma makes sure to create all their shoes with just the right amount of cushion to provide you with all these features. If you’re someone who spends long days on their feet, you’ll be very thankful for this.

Arch support is a feature you should always look for when purchasing a pair of shoes. Flat feet can create other severe health concerns in the future, so now that we have the proper knowledge it’s best to just prevent these issues from happening altogether. Puma shoes are all created with cushioned arch support built into the insoles. This feature also goes back to helping evenly distribute the weight in your feet and keeps your feet more relaxed so you can stay active for longer periods of time.

While the bottom of your foot is being protected it’s also important that the areas around the shoe are cushioned as well. One big problem people commonly have with shoes is that they rub against their ankles and create blisters. This is why Puma creates their shoes with padding around the insides of the ankle areas. They also give the tongue of the shoe some extra padding as well so all around your feet can feel at ease and less constricted.

The type of cushion used in the shoe is very important. While some shoes may feel plush and comfortable during the first wear, you may tend to find that your feet sweat more and because of this, they smell. Puma makes sure to create their cushioned insoles and inside linings with materials that do just the opposite.


Moisture Control

Puma uses a special brand of cushioned insoles called Eco OrthoLite. This is currently one of the best insoles on the market that really works all around to keep your foot comfortable, dry and cool.

You may have heard of OrthoLite insoles before as many popular shoes companies are starting to use this type of material. Eco OrthoLite is a more environmentally friendly version of the original insole. If your someone who cares for the environment and wants to reduce your carbon footprint, Puma shoes is something you can feel good about wearing.

Using the same open cell foam technology as the original, these insoles are created to allow the foot to breathe inside the shoe. Proper air flow and circulation allows the foot to cool down and helps keeps moisture from staying stagnant in your shoes.

When sweat encompasses the foot like that, more problems can occur than just smelly feet. Wet feet makes your skin softer and therefore more vulnerable to blisters and other injuries. Not only that, but your sweat contains bacteria and when your feet aren’t able to breathe the bacteria starts the spread and trust us, nobody wants that.

The breathability features go hand in hand with the moisture controlling technology. The materials used in the insoles help to absorb the moisture away from the foot while the air circulation helps to filter it out and keep it dry. This creates an overall comfortable feel inside the shoe and allows for you to work harder and keep reaching your goals.




Everyone wants the shoes they love to last forever, or at least a really long time right? It’s always frustrating or sad when you’ve only worn a pair of shoes a couple times before they start showing wear or damage. Then you have to spend more money on new shoes and the cycle just seems to repeat itself.

Puma truly understands the value of a quality shoe and works hard to create shoes with durable materials. From inside to out, these shoes were made to last a long time and continuously provide support and comfort throughout their use.

The Eco OrthoLite insoles used on the inside of the shoes are made to keep their form and shape so they won’t wear down to the shape of your foot. While on the outside, special rubber material is used to create the bottom base and heel of the shoe. The rubber is resilient and helps to absorb shock from heavy movements on hard surfaces.

Puma shoes that are made specifically for running and soccer, which are both hard sports on the feet, seem to have the most durability of them all. The materials used on the outside are expected to get dirty which is why Puma uses materials that won’t get ruined from a little dirt or mud and can also be cleaned

Even the stitching is done well on these shoes. The seams are very clean cut with no loose ends and the materials are able to stay fully intact because of this. Overall the durability of Puma shoes is a top reason why the brand is so successful. You can truly get your money’s worth when you’re buying from this brand.


Trending Styles

Puma creates a wide variety of styles which makes them a great brand for all genders and a large group of ages. If you’re looking for classic, retro, minimalist or modern styles, you can expect to find them all here.

The original shoes that helped the launch the brand over 65 years ago are still being used as models to create newer updates of your favorite classics. If your heart is set on those original styles you’ll be happy to know that Puma still keeps them alive.

If you’re more into current colorful retro styles, Puma has those too. You can find styles like these mostly in their specific running section. Puma is constantly using innovative technology to keep styles current. The mesh layers they use in their shoes are a great example of a newer fabric that adds color and is a highly trendy style.

While Puma has some wonderful color selections, you can also find simple, sleek styles great for the everyday minimalist. Most of the classic designs stay in neutral color options which allows them to be easily paired with many different styles of clothing.

Puma is constantly creating new styles and updating their originals. No matter what type of shoe you’re looking for, you can always expect Puma to have all the latest in trending styles.
