PUMA Uproar Performance Review

Here is today’s protagonist —  the spanking new Puma Uproar, which was released during NBA All-Star Weekend after the Puma  Clyde Court. Made to celebrate Charlotte’s basketball history, this Puma Uproar aims at paying homage to the Bobcats and the Hornets. For the record, having tested several times the Puma Uproar before this review, the comeback is real mighty and versatile.  And it seems that this Puma Uproar looks more like a basketball shoe than the previous version did.  Anyway, let’s check it next.

 

I’ve copped one pair of this PUMA Uproar, and to tell you the truth, upon opening the shoe box, staggeringly, I found its appearance quite delighted my eyes. It simply features the red, blue and white though. And simple and moderate as it looks, its performance is just out of imagination. “Remarkable” is the only word that surged into my mind. Go on checking then.

 

Respective of the upper, as you can see, the shoe equips with a rather traditional synthetic leather & mesh set-up covering the whole upper. For me, I like this aspect very much because it offers me enough support and wrapping on the heel, making it less bothering for me to restrict my movements. For the texture, according to some consumers, it feels solid in-hand but splendidly nice on feet; hence, you  can expect a wonderful experience on court.

 

In terms of the cushion, the shoe features a mixture of Ignite foam and its new Hybrid. Besides, the heel part is also installed with a very thick sponge. Well, you  can also see from the images below the prominent NRGY cushion tech. Regarding to court feel which is crazily looked forward to by many experienced players, it is super nice or maybe I should say it is fantastic. It was not until the other day I wore them out that I found it worked quite well for me.

According to  some other reviewers,  the midsole “doesn’t feel like IGNITE” or “it’s much more firm with less rebound/energy return under-foot than any of the previous iterations of IGNITE I’ve tried before”. Anyway, “There are a thousand Hamlet in the eyes of a thousand people.” For me, the midsole does no worse than previous versions. In some way, it can still meet my needs. So the experiences vary.

 

Since softness in the inner part has been guaranteed, it’s time to the next respect: the wrapping. For the aspect, it is not bad. Along with the eminent performance the upper brought, the laces also play an important part in wrapping. So long as you lace up your shoes tightly, you won’t run into any slipping problems. During combats, what you need to do is do concentrate on your match. On the other hand, some might complain about the lack of ventilation in the shoe. Anyway, I don’t suggest it to you who exercise a lot in summer days.

 

Seeing the pattern of outsole below, many people will say, “Well, it is the traditional herringbone again and the grip can’t be bad.” I just can’t agree more. Though the  leaps and bounds are not better than the traction pattern found on the Clyde Court, it is still satisfactory. When there are start-ups or emergency stops, the grip should do a tremendous job for you. So PUMA Uproar can be nice option if you are an outdoor player.

 

As a leather composite sneaker, objectively speaking, you can’t expect it to be super light. If you mind too much about this, you might as well look for something else.

The first I got PUMA Uproar, it impressed me a lot that it didn’t bother me in grinding my feet. It fits me snug well. For wide footers, you may pick a bigger size if you’ve considered copping one PUMA Uproar.

 

Overall:

Every time I find a practical object, I just can’t help sharing it with others and it goes the same for this PUMA Uproar. Despite the shortcomings which are not “fatal” and do not bother too much, PUMA Uproar can be a decent choice and is still worth buying. It fits average people in most cases and it fits heavier one to boot. Anyway, there are still many merits of the shoe waiting for you to uncover. Why not experience it in flesh? It should not fail you.

PUMA Hybrid Rocket Netfit Performance Review

 

Over the last few years,PUMA has made major splashes to position themselves as a true force in the industry. They recently launched PUMA Hoops with top-flight NBA rookies while naming Jay-Z as Creative Director for that category. On the style side, they’ve collaborated with famous faces such as Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Kylie Jenner to name a few. Now, the brand is ready to engage the running world with the new Hybrid technology and the Puma Hybrid Rocket.

 

The pair of shoes and Nike’s Zoom Pegasus Turbo were released almost simultaneously, and both pairs of shoes used some of the moments of cars. Nike uses Turbo, turbocharged with T, and in fact Peg Turbo is also very powerful, really like the turbocharged can be very effective to improve the performance. Puma’s Hybrid represents hybrid power in the car. Of course, it is definitely not possible to use hybrid electric power in the sports shoes. Hybrid refers to the new midsole of Puma’s two major technologies, Ignite and NRGY.

For the box , it is normal with red PUMA .

There are some details of the  shoe .

For the fitting , US10 code = UK9 code = Euro code 43 code = 28CM, it should be noted that the general US10 code corresponding to other brands of running shoes European code are 44 yards, and PUMA and MIZUNO are the corresponding European code 43 yards. When purchasing PUMA, you must purchase it according to the internal length.

The NESFIT is a lacing method for several different foot types on the shoe box.

 

What is Netfit Technology? This is PUMA’s newly developed custom shoelace adjustment technology, which makes the shoelace an important part of the performance of the shoe and an original with more personality. PUMA covers the middle of the upper with a mesh fabric, and the different positions of the lace perforation can more independently adjust the wearing comfort and the strength of the upper support.

Here is the pictures as below :

For the material

The shoe is a conversation starter with its bead-embedded sole. The soft knit upper gives the impression of running in a cushioned sock. While the shoe can feel loose in the forefoot on a run, the lacing system somewhat alleviates this problem, making the shoe a little snugger when tightened.

 

 

 

The hybrid foam midsole makes for a bouncy ride, which compelled one tester to run faster. However, runners may want to turn down the speed over slick roads, as traction was rated especially low.

 

The Hybrid Runner is for neutral runners who prefer minimal cushioning and little stability. It’s an everyday trainer best suited for short road runs and cross-training

 

 

 

The midsole is comprised of two foams for cushioning and energy return, hence the “hybrid” in the sneaker’s moniker. The trippy, bumpy texture on the exterior of the Hybrid Runner is Puma’s NRGY midsole, composed of beads for cushion and comfort. Ignite foam also assists with propulsion and responsiveness.

 

The midsole part of the fore and aft are Hybrid mixed midsole. In the figure below, the green and white phases are very easy to identify. The green base is IGNITE material, and the white embellishment is similar to BOOST NRGY material.

 

 

The middle part is white EVA, mainly for the purpose of stability.With a focus on cushioning, this latest Puma runner is much more interesting than many initially thought. Debuted in mid-July, the Hybrid Rocket sports a segmented three-piece midsole and three-piece EvoKNIT upper.

 

The Hybrid Foam in the heel absorbs the heel strike, the Energy Foam in the middle propels the foot forward with the right amount of support, while the Hybrid Foam under the forefoot creates a soft and gentle toe off for the runner. Feels natural.

 

 

If you cut the shoe in half length wise you will see a unique “wing” construction which allows the shoe to flex while keeping cushion under the foot. No TPU plate! TPU shank pressed up against the foot. Pain! The Hybrid Rocket is flexible and comfortable. We were pretty proud of this solution.

TPU shank pressed up against the foot can give more supporting .

For the traction : the traction actually just so so .Runners found wet roads to be slippery and turns difficult to maneuver.

 

The front and rear palms are all crystal bottoms, and the white EVA part is rubberized.The texture of the entire crystal bottom is not very clear, so the grip actually not bad.

 

Material information for the whole pair of shoes on the insole

The logo on the tongue should be placed on the inside of the shoe because the tongue cannot fit. Place of origin Vietnam

The shoes are too heavy. This feeling was not obvious at first, but it was the first time to experience the NETFIT upper. When the distance is long, there will be a heavy sense of weight.

Every step taken by the new PUMA HYBRID technology running shoes will be provided by IGNITE Technology to provide real-time energy feedback. Then NRGY Technology will continue to support the buffer with the suspension particles, and then return the energy to the IGNITE midsole for absorption and transfer to The toe has a rebounding power and provides the next forward momentum. In this cycle mode, PUMA HYBRID successfully blends NRGY and IGNITE two innovative midsole technologies, just like the equation of the formula “&” Bringing the advantages of superior suspension and multiplication energy feedback
