Puma Popcat Review
We all love summer! Hot days, chilling at the pool or lying on the beach drinking mojito’s – who says no to that? Enjoying the sun rays as they create a beautiful bronze tan? We are in! Everything seems ideal, and as you walk to the pool, your shoes slip, you lose balance and… it’s not that pleasant anymore.
For this reason, we all need to learn that shoes play a crucial role in our lives, whether it’s a sporty one, lifestyle design, slippers, heels or athletic styles. It is vital to have sandals you can rely on for such places, where the danger of slipping and injuring yourself is very high. Well, you are lucky if you are in need of such pair of slippers, since today, we are going to talk about the Puma Popcat – the famous slide sandals that every 10th person wears during summer. Not only do they keep you safe, but provide you with excellent comfort, and they keep you cool too.
Additionally, the Popcat features a lightweight EVA outsole and a premium synthetic-leather strap, making it the ideal pool slide summer sandal. Made in Vietnam, this easy slide design is an excellent blend of comfort and style for anyone looking for an easy ride.

Second, the material that keeps the Popcat amongst the top-ranked summer sandals is the EVA applied to the outsole. Unlike rubber, the EVA ( ethylene-vinyl acetate) material is more shock absorbent. In fact, it is one of the best shock absorbent materials nowadays. In addition to that, the EVA material is also lightweight, contributing to the lightness of the sandal. When compared to rubber, the EVA material is softer, allowing better flexibility. Although rubber provides better grip than EVA, the Popcat, according to some customers, delivers grips well to the surface, whether you are at the pool or in the bathroom. EVA has water and corrosion resistance properties, enabling you to wear your Popcat sandals without much worry.
Furthermore, EVA is one of the best shock absorbing materials available today. As a result of the materials used in the Popcat model, rest assured they are going to last you for many beach days on the Caribbean islands. Many customers who have had the Popcat sandals for over a year, said that they are in very good shape, and after every wash, they look brand new. The design also features the Puma cat logo on the bottom.
Also, if you get the right fit, you will prevent your feet from sliding forward. Have in mind when purchasing these sandals that even though they may be the perfect summer sandal, they are not meant for walking, or standing in them for hours. Be extra careful where you go with them outside the intended areas, because they also have an open toe design, which means your toes are exposed and left unprotected. On the other hand, when it comes to arch support, the specially contoured footbed will provide you with a moderate amount.
The Popcat is very easy to wear and customers agreed that it doesn't make your feet slip forward. They are also easy to clean and they don’t get dirty quick. Some customers recommended cleaning them with wet wipes, and most agreed that after they wash them, the Popcat looks brand new. On the inside, you can notice a chevron-textured footbed for added traction and slip-resistance which has enough padding, feels soft against the skin and keeps your feet in maximum comfort.
The model has a brand new injection-molded EVA outsole added to it that is water and corrosion resistant and works perfectly as an excellent shock absorbent. There is a chevron-patterned footbed, which is padded, feels soft and is also slip-resistant. As a result, the feet won’t slide forward when they get wet. The large brand logo and name are embellished on the strap, and on the outsole. Many customers said that the sizes run smaller, and they recommend getting half a size to a size bigger than your standard size. They are not designed for people with wide feet, although some said that the fit was perfect. The Popcat model is also very lightweight, which means it won’t slow you down and make it look like it’s a mission walking in it. Overall, this timeless classic is a favorite amongst Puma fans, and it’s an ideal staple for those hot days by the poolside.
