A few runner questioned weight

There you have it. Puma puts out a lot of products, but the models above have been rated the highest for their own particular uses and features. Their shoes tend to be versatile and easily move from the tracks to sports activities to daily training. Pumas tend to fall in the middle ground – they’re not too maximalist or minimalist. Because of this, they retain flexibility while being supportive and durable. Read on to see how we made our selections.


The Criteria Used When Choosing The Best Puma Running Shoes:


 A Little Background On The Puma Brand

Puma has an interesting origin story. Started by two brothers in a small German town with limited electricity, the brothers used the pedal power of stationary bicycles to run some of their early equipment. The sleepy, unknown brand exploded in 1936 when the brothers packed a suitcase full of running spikes and drove to the Olympics, which were taking place in Berlin. They convinced US sprinter Jesse Owens to wear their footwear, and he won four gold medals sporting Puma’s on his feet. Needless to say, this would set off a ripple in the running shoe world that is still around today. In fact, the two brothers broke business ties and one of them went off to start another running shoe company. Maybe you’ve heard of them, Adidas. That’s right, these two footwear powerhouses were started by two (almost unknown) brothers and they’ve been bitter rivals ever since.

 Performance, Not Lifestyle Footwear

We know there are a ton of Puma footwear options on the market. In fact, test runners report that they come across so many Puma models in retail and running shops that they stopped paying attention. This is because Puma has split into a lifestyle company, creating suede wrapped shoes that look pretty, but should never be taken out on a run. In fact, they can’t even be taken out in the rain. We have wadded through these shoes and made sure that only their performance driven options are on our buying guide. There are numerous advantages to the Puma running shoe brand, as long as you make an educated selection.



 Added Value With Performance

One the biggest advantages of selecting Puma footwear is the solid value that they provide runners. You are able to select a running shoe that is constructed with premium materials and quality design at a lower price than their big name counterparts. We made sure to cross reference all models with what real world user had to say about them in terms of performance and durability to make sure that our readers get the most value from their selections.


According to runner feedback, finding a running shoe with adequate support can sometimes be a troubling affair. We at Runnerclick are avid runners and know that achieving the right amount of support and cushioning can be tricky. However when you’re going long distances, getting the support levels right isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. So we took a close look at what user feedback had to say about the support levels of the Puma models tested. We know it’s crucial to get the support you need.


Another advantage of the Puma brand is the breathability of their footwear. We have a solid variety of selections, which earn high marks on their ability to keep runner’s feet nice and cool throughout their runs. Whether it’s woven, tightly knit fabric or synthetic mesh, the materials found on the uppers of the running shoes is the first thing we inspected when determining the breathability of the available options. It doesn’t matter if you live in a hotter climate or not, a light and breezy running shoe is always a welcomed companion on any run.

 The Latest Looks And Styles

Ok, we admit it. These are great looking running shoes. While we focus on performance, fit, and technology, we know that runners like to express themselves and have an aesthetically pleasing shoe on their feet. We’re the same way. That’s why Puma brings in what it learns from its “lifestyle” brands and translates that into their performance line. What you are left with is great looking designs and awesome color options. No matter which model you choose, you’re going to get a great shoe that has that on-trend look that everyone’s looking for.



Other Important Things to Consider When Selecting Your Puma Running Shoes.

Puma has a rich history and they take the construction of their performance running shoes very seriously. We have narrowed down the selection to the very best. However, after you take a look at the wide range of feedback and data we went through when compiling our selections, it’s good to have a little more guidance for a custom choice. This will help you choose a running shoe that’s right for you. It’s important that you make a selection that makes sense for your purposes and what you plan to do with them. Below you will find some personal factors to take into consideration when making your choice.

Don’t Fall For Sponsorships Or Celebrity Endorsements

It may be tempting to slip into the latest footwear that is being used in professional soccer, football, or even Olympic events. Puma has plenty of athletes and celebraties that sport their brand both on and off the field. Resist the urge to walk into a department store, or even worse, a fashion boutique, and select a high fashion running shoe. We have vetted our choice based on fit, protection, comfort, durability, and performance to name just a few checkboxes. Selecting the best match for you should always be the top priority.

Make A Selection Based On Activity

We listed models that are a great fit for a wide variety of activates such as training, short runs, and long runs. It’s a good idea to make a selection based on what type of activity you plan on logging the most time of in your Puma’s. If you’re going to run long distances, there’s nothing like a lightweight, breathable running shoe to keep your focus on endurance and stride. For gym training that has you switching between multiple workouts in short spurts, our training selections are the best fit for the job. Trust us, you’ll notice the difference once you make a footwear selection that matches your activity.


Remember The Width Of Your Foot When Making A Selection

Puma running shoe models can really be divided into two categories: narrow and less narrow. Maybe it’s a German engineering thing (like those smaller German cars). We know that happy feet make for a great run, so it’s important to let our readers know about specific sizing properties that may or may not work for them. If you have had issues with the narrowness of running shoes in the past, make sure you look for the options that we have noted for their width. We have options for runners with wider feet, but keep in mind the Puma as a whole tends to manufacture a more narrow shoe.

Keep The Clean For More Than Just Looks

Here’s another factor to consider: maintenance. Puma running shoes have awesome, runner friendly materials that make for a lightweight and breathable running shoe. If you’re going to go with a knitted, formed fabric model, keep in mind that keeping those materials clean is essential to keeping their integrity levels high. So if you’re not the type of runner that doesn’t like to be hands on or proactive with the care of you running shoes, you might want to make a selection that is more “lace up and go” with a less breathable construction and design. Needless to say, never machine wash or machine dry your Puma’s.




We’re confident that by taking some of these factors into consideration when making your choice, you’ll find a solid Puma running shoe that is perfect for you. Before you get out there, we’ve also compiled some frequently asked questions that commonly arise when searching for a new running shoe.


Q: What are Puma’s best known for? What can I expect from the brand?

A: Depends on whom you ask. Track runners know the name for solid Olympic events Gold Medal wins. Soccer players know Puma for being the most trusted name in International play. Football players know then for being extra sticky on the field. We can go on, however, what they mean for runners and what you can expect from them is quality materials with attention to details for an incredible value. Count on the brand to give you a durable and dependable running shoe with a trendy style all of their own.

Q: I’ve heard that most people run without socks in Puma’s; what’s the consensus?

A: It’s really a personal preference. It’s a possibility that since Puma’s are used for a lot of track and field events, most of which are ran without socks, perhaps this stuck with the brand along the way. Regardless of why, running without socks is a choice that each individual runner has to make, there’s no real right or wrong answer.

Q: Do Puma’s run true to size?

A: Yes. The majority of Puma footwear runs true to size, and a lot more consistent than most running shoe brands. The particular models that run a little small, we have made sure to make note about it on our guide so that our readers have the most information available to them.

Q: I’m planning on working to increase my times, are Puma’s a good selection for that?

A: They are a great selection for speed. Puma’s are literarily built for short distances and high speed. Their traction is high to give runners more torque off of the starting line, and they are lightweight and very flexible. If speed is something you’re after, Puma’s are a good selection to make.


This was our approach when selecting the right pair of Puma running shoes. Remember that selecting the right pair of running shoes is an investment and making a selection that is based on personal use and needs is crucial. We hope this guide provided you with all the information you need when making you choice between form and function. Thanks for following along with us.
