Puma LQDCELL Origin AR Training Shoes
Puma’s LQDCELL Origin AR is the German manufacturer’s way of paying homage to a technology that revolutionized the manner in which professional athletes played their game. The Origin features enhanced sports performance technology and an updated design.
In 1996, Puma introduced the CELL technology. It marked the brand’s shift in focus from casual wear to sports performance apparel. It still considers itself a fine maker of casual footwear, apparel, and accessories. The CELL technology, however, defined the company’s renewed understanding of the unique needs of high-performance athletes.
The enhanced CELL technology in the Origin AR still has the original design philosophy. However, it now comes with better cushioning that extends all the way from the heel to the midfoot. What is more remarkable is that the new LQDCELL technology offers improved stability. This can help eliminate unusual pronation or supination of the foot. Improved stability also reduces the risk of injuries while optimizing running performance.
In addition to the hexagonal cell-LQDCELL system, the Origin also comes with SoftFoam+. This is a foot bed that provides exceptional cushioning with every step you take. A more comfortable bed for the sole of the foot can help prevent the formation of blisters. The system relieves the pressure that may be present on this part of the foot.
The Origin also features a breathable upper that boasts of a semi-knitted material with synthetic overlays. The overlays feature QR Code graphic design for a more 21st-century look. The sock collar is flexible and comes complete with an extended tongue structure. The lacing system is customizable, giving the user improved fit while ensuring better support. There’s also a TPU piece in the Origin’s heel, allowing enhanced stability.
The Puma LQDCELL Origin AR improves on the design of a 90s classic by adding elements of the future.
