Puma Ignite Dual
Like the genus of big cats that they derive their name from, Puma has been putting out slick, aggressive lines of trainers that have built a reputation for both style and performance for a long time. From moderately priced but still solid trainers to high-end, expensive lines that people looking for style as much as a comfortable, well-made pair that go the extra mile on the road. Continuing with the company’s tradition for producing excellent running shoes that provide outstanding performance without necessarily breaking the bank, the Puma Ignite Deal is a trainer loaded with features, comfort, and style that will satisfy a wide range of runners and sneaker fans alike.
This lightweight, flexible trainer provides great cushioning and comfort while also remaining responsive on a run. The Ignite Dual can handle both uptempo runs and long distance rides, and its lightness will be appreciated in both cases. Although this shoe has been well-received and reviewed, one critique the Ignite Dual has encountered is that runners with wider feet haven’t found the fit ideal, so this is a trainer that’s best for narrow and medium sized feet. Besides this critique, however, the overall quality, comfort, affordable price, and style of the Ignite Dual outweighs any of its (minor) potential downsides.
With Ignite foam placed in the forefoot and heel of the midsole that provides great cushioning and response while also protecting the foot from impact, a breathable and flexible upper that fits the foot snugly after lace-up, and deep grooves on the forefoot of the outsole for additional flexibility that lets the foot move freely, the Puma Ignite Dual is a dynamic, comfortable, and stylish overall running shoe that both casual and experienced runners will appreciate at a price that won’t break the bank.

For a new pair of running shoes that won’t break the bank or let you down in performance, comfort, and style, your next go-to pair may just be the Puma Ignite Dual.
