Finding the right shoe with the perfect fit and support can make all the difference when it comes to running. This is where the innovative PUMA DISC System comes in — putting a new spin on the way athletes run and train. The brand introduces the world’s first ever laceless closure system which features an innovative DISC technology. The system does away with laces and replaces them with an internal wire system that tightens at the spin of the disc dial to create a custom fit.

The PUMA DISC system is simple to use and makes it comfortable for both beginners and pro-level athletes to gear up and head out on their run. Over the years, this design has been refined and in turn embraced by legends like sprinter Colin Jackson and track and field star Heike Drechsler — both wearing the DISC Spike. PUMA further extended its application beyond running to tennis with the DISC System Indoor Pro II, and to the basketball court with the DISC System Weapon. As the PUMA shoes DISC System comes to celebrate 25 years of innovation, it has evolved into a lighter, sleeker and smoother version.

PUMA shoes

Guided by its mantra of ‘Forever Faster’, the new PUMA Ignite DISC Shoe features a range of new design elements. It is quicker to turn, faster to tighten and features smooth, durable steel wires that wrap and secure the upper, contouring to the foot. The IGNITE Foam midsole offers quick responsiveness and superior energy return with cushioning material that disperses impact. A PU foam formula provides high rebound and a comfortable finish. Midsole chevron grooves compress during landing and enhance energy return during rebound. ForEverFoam is integrated into the heel for durability, while guidance grooves on the outsole run from heel to toe and mimic the natural gait pattern for a smooth ride. Forefoot Flex Grooves work in tandem with the runner’s natural movement for smooth transitions and toe-offs.

When every second counts for a faster running performance, a turn of the DISC is all you need to turn up the speed. Find new ways to accelerate by checking out the latest range of PUMA shoes and performance wear at Sun & Sand Sports online.
