PUMA Ignite PWRADAPT shoe review

PUMA Golf has once again risen the bar where footwear innovation is concerned in 2018 with its brand new IGNITE PWRADAPT golf shoes.

Worn by Cobra Puma staffer Rickie Fowler, the "game-changing" PWRADAPT technology is an all-new traction system that makes use of seven 3-dimensional traction pods, each designed to move with you and respond to pressure during the swing. These cleats really are something else! 

The cleats provide vastly improved ground-grabbing traction regardless of the lie you find yourself with, all thanks to the independent nature of them. This is something never before seen in the golf footwear market.

Having tested the IGNITE PWRADAPT golf shoe on both hard and soft playing surfaces out at Streamsong Resort in Orlando and back home at Hadley Wood Golf Club, we can assure you while this product provides you the cleated benefits of both traction and stability, it also exudes the feel, comfort and lightness of a spikeless offering.

It really is a remarkably soft shoe, but one with bags of performance. 

PUMA IGNITE PWRADAPT Golf Shoes for 2018.mp4

For 2018, however, the ultra-responsive IGNITE foam cushioning runs along the entire length of the midsole for the very first time, further enhancing the comfort factor for which PUMA has become renowned for.

The shoe is also perfect for the British weather right now with a fully waterproof mesh upper with a two-way stretch for the ultimate lightweight comfort.

Unlike previous mesh versions from the brand, this top-of-the-range shoe also features PWRFRAME technology; an ultra-thin TPU frame which reinforces the high stress areas of the foot when you swing.

Stability is greatly improved as a result, all without impacting upon the lightweight and breathable comfort on offer.
