Puma has announced another iteration to their Ignite NXT shoe with the new Crafted model, which are said to blend the NXT technology with the look and feel of handmade, premium footwear for practicality on and off the course.
The Ignite NXT Crafted provides a premium take on the NXT style thanks to a natural leather saddle which gives these a unique and sophisticated look.
Puma says that, because stability is so important, these shoes are developed 'from the ground up'. This is done via a Pro-Form TPU outsole with an organically-altered traction pattern, which features 100 hexagonal lugs to ensure that you get plenty of traction throughout the swing, and on a variety of lies.
A full length Ignite Foam midsole, which is wrapped in Soleshield for added durability, provides extra comfort and energy return to help golfers feel fresh and supported during the course of their round.
This Soleshield is a micro-thin TPU that is formed around the midsole, and also makes sure that cleaning off any dirt and debris is easier than ever.
The shoe's upper features a premium leather saddle, wrapped around Pwrframe reinforcement. The Pwrframe TPU is an ultra-thin frame that is placed in higher-stress areas of the shoe, promoting better stability.
Andrew Lawson, Product Line Manager for Footwear at Puma Golf, commented:
The Ignite NXT Crafted perfectly fuse the beauty of handcrafted shoemaking with modern development techniques to deliver optimum elegance and peak performance. With the combination of style and performance these shoes will appeal to a wide variety of golfers - those who appreciate the classic look of a leather saddle shoe and those who value modern comfort and stability technologies being a part of their game.
The Ignite NXT Crafted Shoes are available in four different colourways - White/Brown/Gold, Black/Brown/Gold, Peacoat/Brown/Gold and White/Hi-Rise/Gold - in sizes 7-12 at an RRP of £110. They are available online and at retail from 5th June.
