Usain Bolt Gets His Own PUMA Bolt Lite Mid Sneakers
Light. If you’re designing a sneaker today, that’s the one thing that your sneaker pretty much has to be. Unless you’re Kanye West or LeBron James, your sneaker is not going to sell if it’s clunky and doesn’t allow people to move around in it easily. So, it has to be lightweight. Just look at the success of the adidas adiZero Rose 2.0. adidas developed a sneaker for Derrick Rose that weighed less than a pound and, in turn, that sneaker turned into one of their most popular sneakers in the last few years.
Usain Bolt knows the deal. Which is why his new PUMA Bolt Lite Mid is, above all, light. It features a combination of both form and function and it’s designed to be used as either an athletic sneaker or a casual sneaker that you can throw on with a pair of cargos this summer. It has a lightweight injected EVA outsole, a cushioned midsole that provides all the support you’ll need, and a breathable upper with a mesh design that’ll keep your feet cool. Oh, and the sneaker is light. Very, very light. We did mention that, right?
Best of all, you won’t have to wait to get your hands on a pair of these. For just 70 bucks, you can get your hands a pair now. Additionally, PUMA has also created a line of Bolt-inspired sneakers that have been designed strictly for runners. Just like the Bolt Lite Mids, the FAAS 400 Bolt running sneakers are lightweight and, at 85 bucks, they’re worth the investment if you’re a dedicated runner. But regardless of which pair you pick out, you can be sure you’re getting a pair of sneaks tried and tested by a guy who knows a thing or two about the importance of sneakers. So, think fast, act fast, and then run fast in a pair of these light sneakers.
