With the new Hy­brid Run­ner Unrest, Puma blends street style with per­for­mance run­ning tech. At the core of the Unrest is a dual mid­sole that func­tions to pro­pel the wearer faster while also pro­vid­ing a com­fort­able ride.

The shoe is a con­ver­sa­tion starter, with its bead-em­bed­ded sole. That bumpy tex­ture is Puma’s NRGY mid­sole, com­posed of TPU beads for cush­ion and com­fort. Ig­nite foam also as­sists with propul­sion and re­spon­sive­ness. Our testers found the mid­sole com­fort­able and springy, and the shoe per­formed well from 5-K to 8-K.

A soft-knit up­per gives the im­pres­sion of run­ning in a cush­ioned sock, which we found can feel loose in the fore­foot. The lac­ing sys­tem some­what al­le­vi­ates this prob­lem, mak­ing the shoe a lit­tle snug­ger when pulled tight.
