PUMA Launches IGNITE, Its Most Energized Running Shoe
HERZOGENAURACH, Germany, Feb. 11, 2015 -- PUMA is proud to introduce IGNITE, a performance running shoe featuring innovative foam technology that maximizes energy return to keep you running longer. Worn by The World's Fastest Man Usain Bolt, IGNITE is PUMA's most responsive running shoe, optimizing comfort and durability. Designed for a wide range of runners, if you put the energy in then PUMA IGNITE gives it back.
Powering every stride is IGNITE foam, proprietary foam that provides responsive cushioning, optimal rebound and comfort. Strategically placed in the heel of the shoe is ForEverFoam—a compound used heavily in the automotive industry. This material creates long-lasting durability and is entirely new to the market.
"Training every day is pretty tough," said Usain Bolt. "I start out with a running shoe to warm up before going into a spike, and I need a shoe that is comfortable and keeps my energy up. I love IGNITE for that, and can feel it make a real difference. It's a pretty good looking shoe as well."
PUMA IGNITE will be available in Men's and Women's styles from March 2015. In subsequent seasons, additional styles will be introduced and the IGNITE line will be expanded further within the Running and Training categories.
