Puma Court Rider Review

Pros:
It is very affordable at only $100
The shoe is very secure and supportive
Cons:
Very minimal cushioning in the forefoot
Quality of materials is a bit lacklustre

Performance of the Puma Court Rider:

Reviewers were split on the performance of the traction but were in agreement that the rubber compound is fairly solid. The cushion is very minimal, especially in the forefoot of the shoe. However, reviewers did agree that there is a bit of impact protection provided in the heel of the shoe. Support and lockdown on the shoe are also very good. Puma did a good job of layering extra materials on the lateral side of the shoe to help keep your foot contained. The heel counter is also solid and does a good job to help you feel secure. The materials are not the best quality but do get the job done and feel quite comfortable on foot. All in all, the Puma Court Rider is a decent new offering by Puma basketball. It will be a shoe to consider if you don't mind minimal cushioning and like a shoe that feels low to the ground.

Guards that are looking for court feel and traction will enjoy this shoe. I highly recommend playing in the Puma Court Rider.

Overall, it is a comfortable and cozy feeling shoe, but it wasn't very responsive because the traction didn't perform well. The cushion is also pretty minimal, but that's understandable for a budget shoe like the Court Rider. I didn't really like playing in this shoe considering there are plenty of good options in the budget shoe price range.

Traction is good if you play on clean courts but does pick up dust fast so I if you play on a dusty or semi dusty court I’d keep looking. Step in comfort is amazing my feet don’t hurt after playing in them

The traction is not good. I never have dust issues on the court I played on, but had issues with the Court Rider.

The impact protection isn't the best, but I loved how the court feel of the shoe feels low to the ground. I didn't feel any pain either.

The step-in comfort kind of sucks. In the heel, there is a bit of compression. The setup provides adequate impact protection but has good court feel.

There are a lot of textile overlays on the shoe. I enjoy how the materials feel.

The quality of the materials isn't the best, but they do feel comfortable. Overall, it is cozy and minimal. One thing I encountered was that the shoe wasn't very breathable.

The build of the shoe with its materials helps with the support. Support, containment, and heel lockdown are all solid.

I had no issues with support and lockdown. In the forefoot, the synthetic leather and the Puma logo act as a sidewall to assist with lateral containment which worked well.

The rubber is pretty hard and the grooves are very thick. It should last outdoors.
