The new Puma Amp XT is part of the latest addition to the DO YOU family, which seek to recognize strength, grace and confidence within, resulting in a shoe that is tech-infused and fashion-forward (and quite honestly not sure about the last part but more on that later).
The Amp XT is a high-performing trainer, that has a knitted collar and forefoot flex zone, offering lightweight comfort while a mid-foot rubber wrap-up and exaggerated heel design offer support and traction. With a rubber out-sole with traction point for dynamic movements. The best part is the IGNITE foam for energy return, which make these thee most comfortable shoes I own in my closet, and mind you I own at least over thirty pairs of shoes.
If I am completely honest, I was initially not into the aesthetic style of the sneaker, as I find them overly simple and kind of boring looking. As a fan of interesting and quirky shoes, I think that is what disappointed me a little at first. However, I am very happy to have a new pair of gym and running shoes, which I have been meaning to get since signing up for the gym at the beginning of the year. Yes, I may be eight months behind but now I can at least look good on the way in and out of the gym. It truly is the perfect feminine gym shoe, guess I was the one who was behind the trend and the AMP XT is ahead lol.
I took my Amp XT’s for a spin for the first time this past weekend. They survived and actually outperformed the rough terrain of Hartebeesport rocky hills while I was abseiling. They were super comfortable, and felt like I was wearing fluffy pillows on my feet, which was quite impressive.
Time to work my workout.
