Ready to Run Anytime: Puma Velocity Nitro 2 Review


While having the slickest, top of the range running shoe is great, most runners just want an everyday running shoe that will help them rack up kilometres day-in-and-day out. For many everyday runners, Puma’s popular Velocity Nitro running shoe ticked all the boxes. It offered comfort, with just the right amount of technology to ensure you’re able to give your best on the road. Through investing a lot of research and development resources into its running category, Puma has produced some stellar running gear over the last few years, and its latest Velocity Nitro upgrade, the Puma Velocity Nitro 2 is no exception.

An all-in-one neutral running shoe, the lightweight and sleek update to the Puma Velocity Nitro is ideal as an everyday running shoe for the casual runner, or as a training shoe for the more serious amateur. Comfort and responsiveness are arguably the most important factors to consider when choosing a running shoe, and this shoe offers both in spades.

Featuring Puma’s now-famous Nitro foam, the shoe offers exceptional responsiveness and ultimate cushioning. Infused with nitrogen gas, Puma’s Nitro foam technology makes it possible to combine three key benefits to the runner — responsiveness, cushioning, and a lightweight feel.

Just like the original, the Velocity Nitro 2 is a well-fitting shoe, durable shoe that promises to offer a smooth ride, no matter the terrain. Built for comfort, this shoe doesn’t need much time to be broken in. You can slip them on day one and head out for a run with no issues or bug bares to distract from your run. They’re extremely lightweight, which adds to their comfort level, enabling you to enjoy a more effortless run. The comfort and weight of these shoes also make them very versatile.

Of course, safety is also a concern on the road, and this shoe provides enhanced visibility through reflective accents on the shoe. To give you even more peace of mind, PumaGrip, a durable rubber compound, provides excellent multi-surface traction, so you can have confidence in every stride while you’re on your run.

The Puma Velocity Nitro 2 is now available in South Africa at a recommended retail price of R2,800.
