Puma Vega Review
It’s easy to find a sport flat nowadays; the hard part is choosing one for yourself. Most brands create a line and stick to it, constantly adding new and improved models to their collection. With such competition on the market, we are left with thousands of shoes to choose from. The bigger the selection, the harder the choice; well, at least some will agree. Puma is one of the brands that successfully delivers sport-lifestyle footwear, regularly creating innovations and revolutionary designs. For the past 70 years, Puma has been dealing with fashion athletic footwear that feels like walking on clouds.
Today we are going to be taking a closer look at a model that is a sporty sister to the ballet flat. Unlike standard ballet flats, the Vega mesh design not only gives cushion and comfort, but it creates a fabulous athleisure look for every day, with almost everything. There are few iterations of this model, such as the Vega ballet SL flat and the Vega Flume. There are differences between the three, and some of them include the material used for the upper and the price. If you want to know more about the whys and wherefores of the Puma Vega mesh model, stay tuned as we delve into details of this awesome slip-on ballerina flat.
- Easy Slip-on Design
- SoftFoam Comfort Insole
- Rubber Outsole
- Breathable Mesh Upper
- Versatile model
- Lack of support
- Makes squeaky noise
In addition to the fantastic mesh upper, the SoftFoam comfort footbed not only surrounds your feet in a cushioned comfort, but it also helps create a healthy foot environment. Basically, the SoftFoam comfort insert is a memory-hybrid foam made to inhibit any type of bacteria growth, maintaining a fresh home for your feet. Furthermore, the breathable mesh upper, together with the lightly padded lining makes it possible for you to wear the Vega style without socks. Moreover, with or without socks, this flat ballerina will maintain the same level of airflow and keep your feet dry, cool and fresh throughout all day wear.
The reason behind the softness and cushioned comfort is the use of SoftFoam comfort footbed. However, despite that, the Vega ballet flats don’t offer much support for athletic activities. But that is still ok since we really like them for the fashion and comfort combined. On the other hand, customers had noticed that the Vega flats by Puma were a bit squeaky when they walked. That is a noise no one wants to hear, nor make, especially in a quiet area. Besides that, this pair of ballet style slipper sneakers is praised by many for the incredible comfort they provide. Perfect for a night out after your ten hours shift.
The Vega model also features a rubber outsole for excellent grip. It is known as the sporty sister of the ballet flat, offering a bit more support than a regular flat. However, it doesn’t provide the best support for athletic activities or if you are walking and standing in them for hours. As per many, another downside of the Vega sport flat was the squeaky noise it made sometimes. This ballerina is also designed with a SoftFoam comfort insole to keep your feet cool, fresh and odor-free.
The Vega ballet can be found in a variety of colors, including black, grey and navy. It is available in medium width, whole, and half sizes. Overall, the Vega ballet is a great flat that deserves a space in your cupboard this season.
