Shoes: IGNITE NXT LACE, DISC AND SOLELACE
What they're saying: Lacing options. That's the biggest takeaway from Puma Golf's latest IGNITE spikless golf shoe. The IGNITE NXT comes in three upper styles – the LACE, DISC and SOLELACE – with each model featuring more stability and comfort than their IGNITE spikeless predecessors.
Each model is built from the ground up, starting with the Pro-Form TPU outsole, which features an organically-altered traction pattern that includes over 100 strategically placed directional hexagon lugs in proper zones for maximum stability and traction. Next, is the full-length IGNITE midsole with SOLESHIELD, a new micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole for easy cleaning. The performance-mesh upper is reinforced by PWRFRAME, an ultra-thin TPU frame that is strategically placed in areas that endure high stress during the golf swing.
Then there's the lacing. The LACE and DISC models feature a traditional lacing system and Disc lacing technology, respectively. The SOLELACE is the one that stands out, though. Using PWRCAGE technology and a strong, lightweight TPU saddle that is decoupled from the upper, this new way of lacing provides increased support and stability throughout the swing
“The popularity of our IGNITE SPIKELESS footwear surpassed our early expectations, as golfers of all ages and skill levels have recognized the comfort and convenience benefits PUMA’s spikeless performance footwear can provide,” said Andrew Lawson, Product Line Manager of Puma Golf. “As well-received as our current offerings of spikeless footwear have been, we’ve taken our game to a new level with the NXT collection that blends incredibly stylish silhouettes, rooted in PUMA’s performance heritage, with three distinct closure options, to ensure the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.”
There is also an NXT PRO version that features a microfiber upper instead of the performance mesh.
Price and specs: $120 for all models; Four colorways in each model.
