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.
