Wow and then silence. Even my colleagues when quiet when I showed them this shoe. I never have a gold colored shoe before. And certainly not one with the name of a world class celebrity runner printed on it. But this was what I was staring at when I unboxed the shoe after receiving it from the people at Puma.
The Puma Ignite is a 12mm heel drop shoe. This is by far the highest heel drop shoes I have in the past years, the next highest being the 8 mm Puma Faas. How will that affect my mid-foot running? Will I be forced to switch back to heel strike? Will it heat up in our hot humid weather? How will it fare on wet ground?
But all the questions will remain unanswered for the time being. One week after getting the shoes, I have still yet to find time to wear it out for a run. Not that I am not trying but I have yet to find time to photograph the shoe in its pristine look before putting it through the grinder.
Until such time, happy running.
