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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
