The Puma BioDrive Leather is the latest in the BioDrive family of footwear which features three specialised zones specifically engineered to increase flexibility, balance and stability and also brings together an ultra-premium, full-grain leather, waterproof upper for quality, performance and protection from the elements.
The three performance zones provide superior grip and control on course, containing multiple decoupled octagon shaped pods in the forefoot for flexibility, increased ground contact and traction.
Additionally, the mid-foot axis point allows for supportive torsional movement for a balanced feel, and lastly, four connected pods in the heel provide a sturdy platform for unmatched stability.
“It’s the perfect balance of performance, comfort and style” – Grant Knudson
Grant Knudson, Puma Golf head of footwear, said: “The new leather model brings a more premium and sophisticated look to BioDrive, while maintaining all of the comfort and performance features from the original mesh version.
“It’s the perfect balance of performance, comfort and style that delivers on the course and in the clubhouse.”
The outsole of the shoe contains ten strategically positioned octagons providing 130 unique points of traction to provide better grip on indoor, smoother surfaces, while traction in the centre of the octagons provide stable performance for all conditions on the golf course.
Built on an all-new anatomical, roomy comfort last, the carbon rubber in the BioDrive’s outsole ensures an excellent grip and long-lasting durability, while a TPU perimeter wrap is bonded 360 degrees around the shoe for improved protection and durability.
Soft memory foam in the tongue provides excellent comfort, and the OrthoLite Sockliner offers superior cushioning, moisture removal and anti-microbial performance. The shoe comes with a two-year waterproof guarantee.
The BioDrive Leather from Puma is available in four colour combinations, including steel grey/spicy orange, bison brown/white swan, black/white/tango red and white/limestone grey, with an RRP of £100.
