PUMA Mobium Elite V2

PUMA continues on its Mobium Elite running shoe concept and has a V2 scheduled for an April release. The Mobium Elite has a sole that nat­u­rally spreads to allow for cush­ion­ing and sup­port upon impact. Once the foot then leaves the ground, the Mobium band run­ning through the sole con­tracts and assists the nat­ural propul­sion, thus making your run more adaptive. Apart from this Mobium band the outsole also features paw-like pods at the forefoot that act as a springboard to energize the midfoot strikes.
The PUMA Mobium Elite V2 has a redesigned upper and now features a mesh material that provides a more secure, comfortable fit.

In the video below Product Line Manager Nikhil Jain and Designer Steven Keating talk about the design features and inspiration behind the second generation Mobium: the Mobium Elite v2, available starting Spring 2014.
