Editor's Pros & Cons

  • Decent traction
  • Breathable mesh upper
  • Supportive design
  • Stylish and functional
Cons
  • Limited color options
  • Rubs around the ankles
Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of the Puma Zenvo high top sneakers is made out of EVA foam with some rubber pods at the toes and heels. The foam of the outsole is going to provide you with a decent amount of underfoot cushioning that is going to give you a rather comfortable ride, keeping your feet happy, even after wearing these sneakers all day long.

The strategically placed rubber pods that are located at the heels and the toes on the bottoms of the shoes help give you a little bit of extra durability in these high wear areas, as well as help increase your traction. You have to make sure that your feet are not going to slip out from underneath you causing you to potentially fall and injure yourself. You will not have to worry about that with the Puma Zenvo sneakers, they can hold quite the grip on many surfaces.

The combination of the EVA foam and the rubber pods keeps the weight down on the sneakers, giving an amazing lightweight feel while you are out and about.
Insole

Insole

As mentioned above, the outsole of these sneakers are made mostly of soft, cushioned EVA foam and as such, there is not much in the way of a midsole. There is, however, an extremely comfortable Soft Foam insole. The soft insole will sit on top of the already comfortable foam to give you an even more comfortable and bouncy underfoot feel. If you are going to be working all day on your feet or you are hitting the gym, you are going to want to make sure that you have a pair of comfortable shoes so your feet will not hate you at the end of the day.

The combination of the EVA foam and the Soft Foam insole will give you a responsive ride that many customers can appreciate, especially those who are going to be using these to do any kind of running. With each step you take your heel is going to sink into that padded sole, the cushioning will then bounce back to its original shape propelling you into your next step, saving you a little bit of energy that you can then use to keep you moving.
Uppers

Uppers

The Puma Zenvo high top sneakers have a mesh fabric and synthetic upper to help give you a decent amount of support and a well-ventilated pair of shoes. They feature a lace-up closure to make sure you get a snug and secure fit. There are easy pull tabs on the heel and the tongue so you can have an easier time getting your shoes on and off. The cushioned tongue and collar help give you even more comfort. Inside of the sneakers is a soft fabric lining to help prevent chaffing and blisters that can be caused by the shoes rubbing against your feet.
Comfort

Comfort

One of the best features of these shoes, according to most customers, is the amount of comfort that they can offer. Some reviewers mentioned that they did not expect them to be so comfortable, after all, they are a stylish and good looking shoe, they should not be comfortable too, right? Wrong. They have both the looks and the comfort that customers love. No need to sacrifice one for the other when you can have both.

The outsole is made out of a soft EVA foam that provides a decent amount of cushioning, and on top of there is a Soft Foam insole that provides some additional padding. It is not just all the cushioning underfoot that provides you with great comfort, there is also the additional padding in the collar and tongue of the shoes. Additionally, the materials that make up the uppers are breathable and flexible giving you great running experience.

The uppers themselves help increase your comfort level. The soft fabric liner inside the shoe helps prevent your feet from rubbing which can cause uncomfortable blisters and sores. Whereas these shoes can help prevent your feet from rubbing inside of the shoe, it does little to prevent uncomfortable chafing around the ankles. Since these sneakers are a bit of a high top and they sit higher than your typical running shoe, the collar tends to rub around your ankles causing some discomfort. This can generally be prevented by wearing longer socks, but most customers prefer wearing short socks, or not at all.
Style

Style

The Puma Zenvo high top sneakers have a great style and design that customers adore. There are a couple of color options to choose from, you can pick between cameo brown and Puma white (pink and white); elderberry and Puma white (light purple and white); or Puma black on Puma black. A few customers commented that they were not exactly the most pleased on the color options that were available to them but they gave the shoes a try anyway. One reviewer mentioned that she was not the biggest fan of the cameo brown, which is actually pink, color but after a while, it grew on her and she fell in love with them.

More than just the color options, customers appreciate the actual style of them. They are made beautifully, with a high top and lace-up design. The Puma logo is printed on the shoes in a couple of places on the sneakers which just adds to the overall great look of them. Reviewers mentioned that they look great with many different clothing options. Whether you are at the gym or running errands, wearing workout clothes, jeans, or slacks, these shoes are going to fit right in.
Breathability

Breathability

The mesh uppers of the Puma Zenvo sneakers are designed to allow a decent amount of air flow into the foot chamber which is always an added bonus. Ensuring that you have a pair of well-ventilated shoes is essential, especially if you are going to be doing any kind of running or exercising in them. You need to make sure that your feet can stay both dry and cool, while you are wearing them, and you will absolutely get that with these sneakers. You need to make sure that your feet stay healthy inside of your shoes. The mesh materials will allow air to flow into your shoe cooling down your feet so they do not start to feel like they are suffocating or overheating inside of them. The ventilation is also going to help keep your feet dry by allowing the sweat from your feet to evaporate more quickly and then escape your shoes just as fast.
Durability

Durability

Durability is super important when purchasing a pair of shoes. You do not want to spend your hard earned money on a product only to find out that is will not last you as long as you had hoped. You will not have to worry about durability when it comes to the Puma Zenvo sneakers. They are made out of good quality materials that are not going to rip or wear down prematurely.

The rubber pads on the outsole are strategically placed on the high wear and tear areas of the outsole to give you long-lasting traction that will not fall apart any time soon. The EVA outsole and the padded insole are also meant to last. The cushioning is designed to take your repeated pounding with each step you take, mile after mile, day after day, without wearing down and losing their padding that gives you the bounce in your step that you will grow to love.

Customers have had no complaints about premature wear and tear, showing that they are a durable and reliable pair of shoes. They have about an average price tag for similar shoes so ensuring that they are going to last makes them a pretty decent deal that customers are happy about.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility is important when it comes to your shoes, especially if you are going to be using them for working out and/or running. You are going to want to make sure that your feet have the freedom to move as freely and naturally as possible while still getting the protection and support that they need from a great pair of sneakers. The Puma Zenvo shoes offer you a good amount of flexibility, making them great for those with an active lifestyle.

The soft EVA foam that makes up the outsole allows for the shoes to bend and flex easily in all the right spots, whether you are walking or running. Unlike some other fitness shoes, these do not have flex lines or grooves that allow them to flex only in certain spots, these are going to flex where you need them to for whatever activity you are participating in. Customers will love that their movements will not be restricted by the shoes on their feet while they are wearing these Pumas.
Support

Support

When looking into purchasing a pair of shoes that you are going to be wearing daily, whether for casual wear or to hit the gym, you are going to want to make sure that you get the proper support that you will need. That being said, the Puma Zenvo sneakers offer you a decent amount of support whether you are hitting the weight room, running the track, or simply running errands.

The lace-up closure and high top design work together to ensure that your feet stay snug and secure inside of your shoe. You do not want to have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside of your shoes, or potentially falling out, while you are in the middle of your daily routines. There was one customer who mentioned that she did not feel that they were tight or secure enough and stated that she was afraid to run in them, but that comment seems to be the exception, not the rule when it comes to the support of these sneakers.

The Pumas also feature durable overlays across the uppers to help keep your feet locked into place within the shoes. Additionally, there are some stretchy panels located around the collar of the shoes to help you slip them on easier while still giving your shoes a snug fit.
Weight

Weight

When purchasing your running shoes you are going to want something that weighs as little as possible. You do not want to be hitting the track or participating in a race and feel like your shoes are holding you back and weighing you down. You will not have that problem with the Puma Zenvo sneakers. They are designed to keep off any additional weight so they will not slow you down while you are on the go. There, unfortunately, is not a lot of information on the exact weight of the sneakers, but customers can agree that they are super lightweight!
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

The perfect balance of great style and amazing comfort has customers falling in love with these. The decent price tag and amazing durability have customers recommending these shoes to their friends, family, and fellow runners.
