Puma Speed 500 Ignite
A good shoe for under a hundred quid is a rarity these days, so we were pleased to see that this model from Puma fared well in testing. It felt inflexible in the hand, but the lab machines found it the opposite, as did our testers, who loved the rounded heel, which didn’t impede their running, and the way the stiff midfoot helped slingshot your foot forward onto the bouncy forefoot. Widerfooted runners take note, though – it’s slim. Bottom line Great-value (and surprisingly flexible) shoe for narrow-footed runners.
