PUMA is known for taking its sportswear designs to the next level. Last month saw the release of the PUMA Spectra range, for its running shoes. This was followed by the PUMA Art of Sport collection. Now, PUMA is mixing it up with its first trail sneaker, the PUMA Voyage NITRO.
Already well-established in the workout and running communities, PUMA has branched out to the hiking community. The PUMA Voyage NITRO features a mix of the brand’s latest technologies, along with its futuristic design ethos.
The Voyage NITRO includes a two-part midsole. This is the NITRO cushioning underfoot, split into the cushioning and responsiveness elements. It was designed from the ground up to tackle those any-terrain trails. Its advanced NITRO technology is infused with nitrogen, as with its running silhouettes, to benefit in three key aspects. This includes the runner—responsiveness, cushioning, while still keeping it extremely lightweight for a more effortless movement.
With the cushioning taken care of, the PUMAGRIP outsole provides impressive traction. Additionally, PUMA analysed various shapes, which resulted in this being the best-fitting in the industry. As a result, the PUMA Voyage NITRO will fit a variety of foot shapes to provide the best fit across the board.
Switching to the upper, it features the new OPTIFIT technology. This wraps around the foot to give it a secure fit, especially for uneven terrain. Wearers can feel free to venture off without having to worry about dirt, debris other any other obstacles on the outsole. It also features a specialised draining system to easily drain the water you collect as you walk.
It features stack heights of 24.5mm at the forefoot and 34.5mm at the heel. This also includes HTD at 10mm. A size 4.5UK weighs 254g. And 8UK just 304g.
Take the road less travelled with the PUMA Voyage NITRO. The shoe will be available this September.
It will be available online at PUMA.com, as well as in-store at PUMA stores across the country. Additionally, stores also include Totalsports, Cape Union Mart and select retailers. It will retail for R2,799.
