The key technology feature in the new Ignite line of shoes from Puma Golf is Ignite foam, and it is employed in spiked and spikeless models in an effort to provide what company officials describe as “responsive cushioning, optimal rebound and superior step-in comfort.”
In other words, they are designed to be stable and comfortable as they also release energy more efficiently throughout the swing.
Rickie Fowler has been wearing the TitanTour Ignite in competition since last year’s Presidents Cup. They are made in a proprietary process in which a liquid polyurethane blend is poured into a mold to form a cushioned midsole. The shoes also utilize so-called PwrCool technology to regulate foot temperature by utilizing materials that absorb, store and release heat. A dual-density PU sock liner enhances fit and feel, while the outsole boasts anatomically positioned flex grooves that allow the feet to move more naturally while still providing support with low-profile cleats.
The TitanTour comes with a full-grain leather upper, and it is also available in a Premium model with full-grain leather uppers and a pigskin lining.
Shortly after releasing its TitanTour line, Puma rolled out the Ignite Spikeless. It, too, employs Ignite foam. A performance TPU outsole encases the midsole for lightweight strength and durability, and the sole of the shoes has 39 strategically placed hexagon pods and 24 chevron lugs to improve grip and traction.
