The beauty is in often in the eye of the beholder, but the whole and unmatched beauty of the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneaker is on full display. The entire structure of the sneaker radiates with elegance and simplicity, not just the clean and delicate outsole.
When you take a first look at the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit, you’ll instantly notice the gorgeous full-length rubber compound fused to protect the platform against the tearing.

Yes, part of it forms a very practical toe bumper at the front of the sneaker but it’s not just a stylish detail put for decorative reasons. There’s more than that In fact it’s put there to guard and protect the toe area and the front of the sneaker that often gets the most of the tearing and wearing. The rubber of the outsole is textured and highly durable, and it can provide a sticky grip on slippery surfaces without any problem. Oh, and we can’t forget the variety of lugs placed throughout the outsole for enhanced traction and overall longevity. The outsole of the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneaker features two sets of openings. One is triangular and can be found in the heel and there’s the second elongated one in the forefoot. Their different shape and positioning on the entire shoe ensure the platform is more flexible in the right areas. The heel in the back and the front toe areas of the feet.


The Nrgy part of the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneaker is there because of the NRGY cushioning inserted in the midsole. It’s one of Puma’s signature cushioning and it fits perfectly with the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneaker. Why? Because the entire cushion is made out of small TPU balls and the sockliner is made out of Softfoam. Yes, they’re fused together into a fantastic and very comfortable midsole, and the entire Nrgy cushioning is there to absorb the shock upon impact. The cushioning then transforms that shock into an explosive wave of energy, and your feet will be spoiled rotten. They’ll long for a sneaker that does that, and they’ll curse the shoes that don’t have that Nrgy cushioning


Fabric and textile can form a perfect match. And the phrase perfect match sums up the entire upper of the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneakers, but there’s so much more to be said about that gorgeous upper. It’s made from an almost seamless tightly woven synthetic fabric, that hugs the feet, and prevents any sense of discomfort during the long hours of wearing them. The PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneaker is designed as a slip-on trainer, so the pull tabs located at the heel and on the instep help the shoe to be put on and taken off much faster and easier. They make the job of wearing the sneakers much easier in every respect, and you’ll be able to feel that.

The PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneakers are designed with a stylish low-cut silhouette which allows a much freer ankle movement, and both the front and the back of the collar are extended to give a more tightly secured feel of the sneaker. But that’s not it. The lining of the upper is made with very soft and pleasant to the touch fabric, and you can basically wear the shoes without socks and you won’t get uncomfortable or itchy.

The added synthetic reinforcements on the sides and around the heel of the PUMA Women's Nrgy Neko Knit Sneakers are put there for extra support and protection of the feet. And those fantastic synthetic reinforcements on the sides not only carry the logo of the company, but they also have holes especially designed for the shoelaces to come through. The shoelaces can be adjusted to the preference of the person wearing them, and they do secure the fit of the shoe in the midfoot. It’s worthy to mention that the shaft measures approximately low-top from arches and that shoelaces match the color of the upper. Yup, together they make one stylish sneaker made for stylish ladies.
