Introducing PUMA Pro Adapt Rickie Fowler Golf Shoes
Golf fans worldwide take note – PUMA Golf recently announced their newest golf shoes for 2019 and you’re going to want them in every colour. The Ignite Pro Adapt is attached to golfing legend Rickie Fowler and went on sale in March 2019. It’s already proving a hit with the most stylish golfers in the land, from budding amateurs to the most established professionals.
The updated Ignite Pro Adapt
Fashion and function are in abundance with the latest addition to the PUMA Golf collection. Designed to meet and exceed the demands of the most elite golfers, these golf shoes are simply outstanding, and we fully expect to see this impeccable style worn by golfers all year round. This shoe has already been showcased on tour by Rickie Fowler and helped him on his way to victory at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale in February 2019. Fans will be pleased to learn the shoes were designed in collaboration with Fowler himself. They boast a lot of new features which help to improve stability and traction. In terms of style, they’re also very easy on the eye. PUMA Golf footwear product line manager, Andrew Lawson said “Rickie was involved from the earliest stages of design, expressing his desire for an upper that provides a ton of support with premium styling. Better players will love these shoes as they offer comfort, maximum stability, ground traction and motion control through your golf swing.”
Key features of the Ignite Pro Adapt
The main attraction of this new shoe is the ‘Atlantic’ leather upper, which is buttery soft and ready to wear right out of the box. It has an ultra-premium feel that locks down support and comfort, all in one sleek silhouette. It also includes a one-year waterproof warranty, which is good news for your peace of mind. PUMA Golf fans will be pleased to see the return of the famous ‘formstripe’ on either side of the shoe, too. For an impeccable fit, PUMA used the decoupled, dual-layer construction moulded collar. This offers the comfort of a high-end running shoe but with the aesthetics of a high-end leather golf shoe. In short, everything about this shoe is pure premium. In the sole, you’ll find the Ignite foam cushioning – tried and tested across multiple sports footwear categories. It offers incredible comfort, right out of the box with outstanding energy return. To enhance this even further, you’ll also find the Pro-Fit insole, added at Fowler’s request. Offering pillowy support as you make your way around the course, you’ll hardly even know you’re wearing golf shoes. And finally, the outsole is the final component of the shoe. For those who like to have good contact with the ground and incredible control, the TPU compound offers incredible grip and traction, no matter the conditions. It also offers a high degree of abrasion resistance. The 9 Tornado Cleat System will ensure you have stability and control at every stage in your swing.
We wouldn’t blame anyone for investing in all three colourways. The Rickie Fowler Ignite Pro Adapt is available in White/Grey Violet, Grey/Vibrant Orange and Black/Dark Shadow Grey. There’s a colour for everyone, no matter your style. PUMA Golf fans can also expect to see limited edition versions of these shoes cropping up over the coming months. Once PUMA knows they are on to a winning format, they are pretty reliable in offering limited edition offerings for the super fans.
