SHOE REVIEW no 2: PUMA’s HYBRID RUNNER DESERT

 

The new HYBRID Runner Desert is a game changer for everyday cushioned running shoes. The HYBRID FOAM is a mix of our two most innovative midsole foams: IGNITE FOAM and NRGY. The NRGY beads provide instant cushioning, while the IGNITE FOAM provides fantastic energy return to propel you faster. The shoe is lightweight and fuses street style with technology.

TECH CALLOUTS

When running, our IGNITE FOAM reacts on impact, providing energy return. The NRGY beads then provide the ultimate cushioning, giving back to the IGNITE FOAM, absorbing the energy, and creating a rebound effect during the toe off phase. The result is maximum cushioning and energy return for longer runs.

The HYBRID Runner fuses our most innovative technologies. The HYBRID FOAM is a mix of IGNITE FOAM and NRGY beads. The NRGY beads provide instant cushioning while the IGNITE FOAM provides energy return to propel you forward faster.

HYBRID is an entirely new technology. The combination of NRGY beads and IGNITE FOAM, make for our most supportive running shoe yet. This means better cushioning, better energy return, and better runs.
