Puma has announced new women's and junior shoes for 2017 that focus on bringing performance and fashion to the golf course.
Both categories of player are increasingly looking for shoes that will help their games coupled with looks that stand out on the course.
Grant Knudson, Puma Golf's Head of Footwear, explains the thinking behind the women's range:
Our 2017 women’s line demonstrates our commitment and increased focus on the female consumer segment as we truly believe that the future is female. Women are looking for golf shoes that are designed for their specific needs - with added style, comfort and versatility.
We focused on those elements when designing and developing our new ladies collection, and our women’s line up is the best it’s ever been. It’s never been easier to get fashion-forward golf styles without sacrificing comfort that can easily transition from the course to the clubhouse.
Puma Ignite Spikeless Sport Women's Golf Shoes
The Ignite Spikeless Sport delivers multi-directional traction thanks to 39 strategically placed hexagons on the sole that work with 24 chevron shaped lugs to give grip throughout the swing.
The outsole is made from a performance TPU giving long lasting abrasion resistance on all surfaces, while an ultra-stable platform in the midsole provides comfort and stability.
A four-way stretch, water-proof mesh integrates with a full-grain leather support saddle to keep the player dry and comfortable on the course with Puma's proprietary Ignite Foam in the sole providing energy return to the foot, stable cushioning and superior comfort.
The women's Spikeless Sport is available in two colourways: Grey Violet/Silver/Royal Purple and Peacoat/Silver/Knockout Pink.

The Puma Tustin Saddle shoe pairs a classic golf silhouette with a reptile inspired saddle for a distinctive look. Comfortable, lightweight and waterproof the shoes are set up to be worn either on or off the course.
Using GripZone traction on the outsole and a performance mesh upper that is breathable and durable the Tustin Saddle boasts a premium moulded insole to provide a great fit and long-lasting durability.

Puma TitanTour Ignite Hi-Top Junior Golf Shoes
For junior players Puma are releasing a version of the the popular TitanTour Ignite Hi-Top's to give the next generation of golfers all the style, comfort and performance stability needed to take their game to the next level.
The juniors' model features the same Tour-Performance specs found in the the shoes developed for Rickie Fowler:
The response to my hi-tops has been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m excited that Puma is introducing these shoes to junior golfers. Puma Golf’s Hi-Tops are my favourite shoes to wear on course – they allow me to bring my style and personality to the links yet still provide the stability and comfort I need to perform at my best.
Hi-Top's are distinguished by the support collar, lined with ultra-soft foam, which hugs the ankle to provide extreme stability and works with the lightweight Velcro strap to deliver locked-in ankle support.
Traction comes from strategically placed hexagons and traction lugs on the sole that work with the five K5 low-profile spikes that have long lasting abrasion resistance.
A lateral mid-foot stabiliser bar improves stability through the swig and the EVA foam used in the interior of the shoe delivers premium comfort levels allowing young players to stay on the course all day.
