Puma Ignite NXT golf shoe review

The Puma golf shoe range has grown over the years and now offers golfers an extensive range – the Ignite NXT is one of the best Puma golf shoes.

These shoes are packed with technology to give your feet a comfortable and grippy feel when walking over 18 holes.

The Ignite NXT shoes feature Puma’s Pro-Form TPU outsole with an organically engineered traction pattern with over 100 strategically placed, directional hexagonal studs for maximum stability and traction.

This results in fantastic traction in all conditions.

When tested on wet lawn, these shoes were rock hard.

Soleshield is a new micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum formed around the full-length Ignite foam midsole, making it easy to clean up dirt – especially if you wear these shoes on a wet day.

The outsole of the Puma Ignite NXT golf shoes

The outsole offers an impressive amount of grip in a wide variety of conditions.

The grip of the strategically placed studs is excellent and particularly impressive with such a light shoe.

They have midsole foam that offers energy return, responsive comfort, stable cushioning and superior ease of entry.

After unpacking, these shoes needed very little break-in.

The upper features a flat-knit waterproof mesh vamp with a Pwrframe TPU – an ultra-thin frame strategically placed in high-traffic areas for lightweight support and increased stability.

Puma has been a leader in golf fashion for nearly two decades, and their shoes are inspired by street fashion as well as other sports.

The Ignite NXT offers a modern, sporty look combined with an excellent level of comfort and traction – this is a great example of the modern golf shoe.

The Ignite NXT will help you stand out on the fairways, give you an edgy look and build your confidence on the way to the first tee.

You will find that these shoes offer an appealing mix of comfort, style and functionality.

Because they’re so light, combined with the energy return foam, they’re brilliant for a long day on the course – 36 holes in these shoes seem a lot easier than in a traditional pair of heavier golf shoes.

Available in four colors and a BOA tip option, there should be a style for every taste.


The grip of these shoes is the real headline. For a shoe without spikes, it behaves remarkably similar to a shoe with spikes. Combined with the style and overall comfort, it’s another solid offering from Puma.
