Puma Rise NITRO Review

Pros:
Has comfortable materials
Reliable traction
Cons:
Not durable enough for outdoors
Breathability could be better

Performance of the Puma Rise NITRO:

Puma continues to provide consistent and reliable traction with the Puma Rise NITRO. The cushioning isn't the bounciest or most responsive. It is comfortable, though. Most reviewers agree that the materials feel comfortable and the shoe is well padded. The fit is snug, but the shoe provides a solid 1-to-1 fit. The materials and fit work together to provide your feet with solid lockdown and containment. Overall, the Puma Rise NITRO is a reliable performance basketball shoe. It fits right into the Puma basketball lineup.

I definitely recommend the Puma Rise NITRO. The cushioning, traction, and materials work together to provide a comfortable shoe.
 More details
The Puma Rise Nitro plays similarly to the MB.01 Low. It has a reliable fit, support, and materials, but it doesn't play well outdoors. The cushioning is also underwhelming.

It´s a bit bulky shoe, not a lot forefoot flex. On the other side, i had no problem with traction or cushion. Good shoe, maybe not for the guards in need of a flexible shoe!

I had no issues with the traction, and I love how they implemented the wave pattern.
 More details
The traction is best on lateral movements and cuts. I didn't slip or have any other issues with the performance. Overall, it's reliable.

The cushioning is one of my favourite parts of the shoe. The foam feels soft and reminds me of Adidas's Bounce cushioning.
 More details
I wasn't impressed with the Nitro cushioning. It provides some responsiveness and bounce, but it could be better.

The shoe is well padded, which feels comfortable. I enjoyed how the materials felt during play.
 More details
The knit materials are soft and snug. The shoe also includes a lot of padding. Breathability is not good, though.

The heel lockdown was amazing on this shoe. The materials also keep you contained nicely.
 More details
Once you lace the shoes up, your feet aren't going anywhere. The containment is solid.

Puma also includes Power Tape to help with the fit and support. It conforms to your feet nicely.
 More details
My favourite thing about the shoe is the fit. It's a close and snug, 1-to-1 fit.
