Puma unveils TITANTOUR shoes
Puma’s new TITANTOUR golf shoes are cool in every sense of the word.
The shoes are designed to regulate temperature with what Puma is calling Outlast Certified Space Technology. It was originally developed for NASA to maintain comfortable temperatures in spacesuits, and it has been placed in the sockliner of the new shoes. The technology works by preventing moisture before it happens, and uses phase-change materials that absorb, store and release heat from the shoe for improved comfort.
Plus, the shoes look pretty cool, too.
For better performance, the TITANTOUR’s have what’s called PowerFrame technology, an ultra-thin TPU midsole that’s light, flexible, stable and provides increased traction. External TPU Heel support helps increase stability for the foot throughout the swing.
The upper of the shoes is made of full-grain leather giving it a softer feel, and a “PowerVamp” across the forefoot reduces stretch as the shoe wears. The upper and insole have ShapeLock memory foam that customizes the fit to your foot and adds cushion and comfort.
The low-profile cleats use K5 to enhance durability, helping the spikes last longer. For support and traction, secondary walls are placed around the cleats, and the outsole has flex grooves that allow the foot to move naturally.
The TITANTOUR’s ($220) hit stores on Feb. 1, 2015 and are available in seven color combinations: (Black-White), (White-Vibrant Orange), (White-Strong Blue), (White-Gray Violet), (Brown-Mustang), (White-Black) and the new Flash colorway, made of reflective material.
Also new is the TITANLITE ($120) shoe, which also has Outlast technology, a microfiber leather upper for comfort and durability and a Carbon Rubber outsole. It hits stores on Feb. 1, 2015.
The TITANLITE is available in six colorways: (White-Black), (White-Black-Vibrant Orange), (White-Chestnut-Black), (Limestone Grey-Steel Grey-Strong Blue) and (Black-White).
