Puma first launched the DISC system into their running shoes about 25 years ago and this shook up the running shoe industry completely.
Featuring a revolutionary technological design offering the perfect synthesis of foot and shoe, the DISC System was the first laceless closure system. Simply by turning the DISC dial, runners could secure their shoes with a custom fit.
Now this year, Puma recognises that every second counts when it comes to being Forever Faster in running. So the sports company has taken the DISC design and made it lighter and sleeker.
As a result the new DISC shoe is quicker to turn, faster to tighten and features smooth, durable steel wires to keep the foot aligned.
The DISC System has been launched in two shoes ranges – the IGNITE and the evoSPEED.
Featuring the IGNITE foam which offers superior energy return and exceptional cushioning, runners will be able to enjoy an updated and slimmer DISC System and a minimalist upper for a snug fit.
As well, the new DISC System can turn easily, and the foot will be secured nicely and comfortably inside the shoe. Runners can also experience high rebound and fantastic comfort as well as durability for long-lasting performance with the ForEverFoam.
The guidance grooves from heel to toe, will mimic a runner’s natural gait pattern and the Forefoot Flex Grooves will help them in transition and toe-off.
evoSPEED DISC Spike
A track shoe, the evoSPEED DISC Spike features Puma’s revolutionary fast-closing DISC system and secures the foot into the shoe within a split second so that no time is wasted for track runners where speed is the essence.
The shoe also features a full-length Pebax Sprint Plate with eight spike receptacles as well as a Clarino® synthetic upper that provides great upper support for the feet.
Cost and where to get the shoes
