In the sixties PUMA developed its successful model PUMA KING. After having become particularly well known because of the FIFA world cup, its design is still up-to-date today. With URBAN PROTECT, PUMA SAFETY created a line that has the potential to repeat this successful story. Classical design elements are combined with modern fashionable cut. Technically the new toe cap, sole construction and the new strips offer new standards.
This 300° C heat resistant HRO rubber outsole with its differently shaped profile elements offers optimal mobility and safe contact with the ground. Due to the increase of the rotation point, friction and thus tiredness can be significantly reduced.
The special feature of the sole is the integrated rotation point. This point in
the area of the inner metatarsus is the most overused element when walking
during the job. By reinforcing the rotation point, friction and thus fatigue
is greatly reduced.
The idCELL element in the heel area consists of a very soft sponge EVA midsole and perfectly absorbs impacts and shocks when the heel strikes the ground.
We injected billions of tiny bubbles in this ultra lightweight midsole for an optimal cushioning and an improved flexing action of the foot.
This anatomically designed footbed provides a high level of comfort and moisture control, giving a pleasant foot climate. This footbed, as used in high performance sports shoes, is made from a soft, opencell, resilient foam that will not compress in wear, which assures a high level of cushioning, breathability and moisture regulation.
