Puma have launched their first womens only Mobium Elite. The fundamental principles of the Mobium are concerned with 'adaptive running' for a shoe which subtly modifies itself to your foot.
There are three elements to the shoe which Puma claim make this adaptation possible:
Expansion pods on the sole that flex in the same places as the foot.
Mobium band, an elasticized band on the outsole designed to work dynamically in the same way as the foot's tendons.
Windlass chassis, a midsole that changes in shape and length in sync with your foot.
These key characteristics of the Mobium remain, but what makes it female specific is a lighter midsole. During a quick lunchtime run, the shoes are notably light and un-bulky – a big plus for any training shoe. Despite their lightness, there is still a reassuring amount of support and the alignment of the shoe to the shape of the foot is almost glove like.
Although the aesthetics of a shoe should never have too great an impact on your choice of running shoe, for some, an attractive looking shoe is an incentive to hit the park - and on that these deliver. On initial test runs we are impressed, these made quite an impression in fit, comfort and style.
