What we say...

Puma have introduced the Alphacat Nitro, a fashionable spikeless golf shoe that brings you innovative cushioning and energy return with every swing.

Puma have been a fan favorite amongst amateurs for a while now with the Ignite and RS lines that perform so well and have made our list of the best golf shoes in the past few years.

What helps Puma stand out is their ability to innovate and bring the latest and greatest technology to help improve our games.

The Puma Alphacat Nitro is a spikeless shoe with premium cushioning that provides explosive energy and propulsion with each step. 

With the new Alphacat Nitro, Puma continues to raise the bar in the spikeless golf shoe category, creating a fashion-forward design with hi-tech materials and advanced performance. 

The Alphacat Nitro design features a new and innovative Nitro Foam material, which is infused with nitrogen gas to create exceptional cushioning and energy return with every step.

The newly designed material is also extremely lightweight, allowing for an energy-saving design. The Upper EXOShell is engineered with mesh to provide enhanced structure and support both during the swing and while walking.

In addition, a Dual Material Alpha Traction sole design provides grip and stability in a wide variety of turf and weather conditions as well as impressive durability. And true to form for all PUMA kicks, a unique Formstripe External Heel Counter looks cool wherever the shoes are worn.
