My Puma IGNITE Review...I wanna be #ForeverFaster!


Welcome to my Puma Ignite Review!
I'm wearing the IGNITE Top and the Pure 3/4Running Tights.
When I was asked to write a review about the NEW line from Puma through Fitfluential....my response was HECK YEAH!! I currently own two other pair of Puma shoes and have a PUMA jacket that I have practically worn out. I love this product and was ever so excited!!

I am trying out the IGNITE Top, the Pure 3/4/ Running Tights and the new IGNITE Running Shoes. You remember that guy who is the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt?!? Yeah, he wears Puma IGNITES so I knew I would like them. :)

One day, I'm gonna be Usain Fast. Just watch. 

What's so great about PUMA IGNITE?

Full length IGNITE FOAM midsole's PU blend offers high rebound cushioning.

Step-In Comfort:

Lets go for a test run!
     So I took my new kicks to the gym and out for a test run. I really liked them. Now let me just say that I only ran in them for 3 miles and they were perfect for that distance. I'm interested to see how they will be in longer distances. My feet are accustomed to lots of cush and from everything that I've read regarding the Puma IGNITE technology, these shoes should be able to compare quite nicely. However, I ordered them just a little bit too big so they are going to be shoes that I wear to the gym regularly.

Took my outfit to the gym.

The Results Are In!
    Okay. This is the real test for me. I took my outfit to the gym to get in a workout. There are two things that drive me really nuts when it comes to workout clothes....1. Shirts ride up. 2. My clothes stay wet for a really long time.

     I enjoyed wearing the top to the gym. No riding up. I absolutely LOVED the nice slim fit cut of the shirt. It was really figure flattering and I appreciate that! Thanks Puma!

     As far as the wicking material...I left the gym a soaking sopping wet mess (gross, I know) and drove for about 15 minutes to go pick up a friend for lunch. By the time I arrived at my destination, my clothes were nearly dry and I was able to go inside the restaurant in my workout clothes. Score! Again, it's the little things....Thanks Puma!

Puma Ignite Deep Blue-Team Italia Navy-FLUO Peach.

Puma Ignite Black-Puma Silver
So there you have it. I'm a total fangirl of everything Puma. I loved the running shoes in Deep Blue-Team Italia Navy-FLUO Peach so much that I've gotten another pair in Black-Puma Silver already. I would have never thought to order black workout shoes, but I really do like them!

There are a couple of other colors in the IGNITE Tops that will be hanging in my workout closet soon as well. ;)
