The Golf Monthly team's Puma Titan Tour shoee review, a cleated golf shoe that features Outlast technology originally designed for NASA spacesuits

Key technology Puma has labelled this model the ‘coolest shoe in golf’ thanks to its use of temperature-regulating Outlast Technology originally developed for NASA. It is strategically placed on the memory foam insole to manage heat while controlling the production of moisture.

An ultra-thin TPR frame encases the midsole for lightweight strength, as well as providing durability, flexibility and traction, while an external TPU Heel Support provides greater stability. The upper is constructed from full-grain, premium leather. The Puma TitanTour shoes are available in seven colourways

Will suit Golfers seeking modern styling and the extra traction cleated shoes provide at a medium price point.

Puma Titan Tour sole

GM verdict Right out of the box, the TitanTour offers an immediate feeling of comfort thanks to the soft cushioning that moulds to the shape of your foot and supple leather that forms the upper. The shape of the shoe hugs the foot for a snug, comfortable fit without feeling too tight. The outsole combination of the seven cleats surrounded by smaller nubs provides more-than-ample grip over the steepest of terrains.

This is one of the more stable shoes on the market, thanks to the plastic frame that surrounds the perimeter of the outsole, but there’s an element of flexibility there to help you turn and move through the shot. The true test of a shoe comes over a longer period in different temperatures and weather conditions, but our trial so far has left us very impressed indeed.
