About this deal

However, if you want a lower priced shoe, that you’ll only wear for indoor gym classes, the Puma Zone XT isn’t a bad choice. If you’re looking to do more weightlifting, or more running then I’d spend my money elsewhere. Box jumps didn’t feel especially explosive, and my foot moved around quite a lot during burpees. As an all rounder, they were better than wearing a running shoe here too. Overall Stylish enough for the streets and serious enough for sport, our Disperse XT 2 Training Shoes are must-haves for both casual and serious athletes. Lightweight and agile but able to support intense action, with a breathable mesh upper, comfortable cushioning, forefoot flex grooves for fast twitch motions and a zoned rubber outsole for durability and traction, this premium pair is ready to get moving. FEATURES & BENEFITS To conclude, it took me a while to make my mind up on this shoe. First impressions weren’t too good, but it then went on to perform OK in testing and for a low price training shoe it did the job. It didn’t feel cushioned or particularly stable, but did the job it said it would, and performed in this type of workout.

My feet moved around in these too much for my liking when lifting heavy weights, e.g. squats or deadlifts, but if you are just starting out lifting weights. The loop on the tongue and heel made getting them on and off easy (except for the insole moving around) and the laces stayed put. For bodyweight exercises the Zone XT’s were better than average. They’re light, flexible and the hybrid foam sole performed, giving stability.The NRGY beads are visible under the heel of the sole in a small section, for added comfort when running and landing heel first. The sole of the Zone XT is made of a hybrid of foams which aims to provide the solution of being a good all rounder, performing in all the tasks that the wearer will throw at it. The shoe doesn’t claim to be a running shoe, but performed surprisingly well on short runs, especially fast treadmills sprints due to its lightweight components. I wouldn’t recommend wearing these for runs longer than 1km at a time, and if you plan on running regularly I’d definitely recommend a specialist running shoe. Weightlifting

This foam is a combination of NRGY beads which aim to provide cushioning and Ignite foam to give responsiveness and energy return when and where required. The insole is made of a singular material and depth spongy foam, which gives some comfort under foot, but flattens easily in areas where there is more weight (ball of the foot and heel). The Zone XT performed OK in all areas of testing for high intensity interval training, I just didn’t love the shoe. For me the shoe felt more on the stable, solid side, with little cushioning, which was great when lifting weight and for bodyweight exercises, but felt very hard under foot when running for longer than a few minutes.

Puma Zone XT Conclusion

The Zone XT offers a much better experience than wearing a traditional running shoe, due to the low heel drop, and firm foam under foot. High Intensity Training (Burpees, Box Jumps, Kettlebells, Lunges)
