I just saw these videos online about Puma's new "Mobium" shoes and was intrigued. They wax lyrical on what they're calling "adaptology" or "adaptive running". This looks quite a bit different from all the other offerings on the market at the moment. What do you guys think of the tech behind these shoes? Worth investigating or not?

Am very curious myself too!

The only thing that worries me about these are the contact areas of the shoe - looks very bias toward heel strikers?!

Daniel, it's "biased" not "bias" and I think you are right; these are designed for heel-strikers by the look of those videos.  Remember, the vast majority of runners are heel-strikers, despite the current trend to move forwards to mid/fore-foot striking.

They also look pretty minimal - I don't think there's going to be a support version!

Thanks for the english lesson DiscountRunner! 

I guess you're right about the majority of runners are heel-strikers. I'm naturally a mid-foot striker, so it's a shame that this shoe isn't for me as I'm liking the technology! ....quickly reads back to check spelling!

 I'm also curious about these shoes - the technology is a bit different from others.  Unfortunately, I need support shoes, so they're not for me either.  Thinking about it, I've never considered Puma for running shoes before.
