Introducing the PUMA Fast-FWD NITRO Elite - the next generation of innovation, built for the fastest times over a short distance. It puts ground-breaking engineering at the forefront, with a cut-away NITRO Elite midsole and a responsive PWRPLATE combining to get you running a PB every single time.
Puma Womens Fast-FWD Nitro Elite
The PUMA Women's Fast-FWD Nitro Elite uses the top-of-the-line Nitro Elite cushioning, giving you the very best in responsiveness, in a crazy light package.
A PWRPLATE carbon fibre plate offers a stabilising platform through the shoe, giving you a more efficient stride, and a pop of energy at toe off.
The undercut shaping at heel and forefoot lets the foam and plate flex, maximising their effectiveness, while simultaneously reducing weight.
PMAGRIP-LT provides traction that is incredibly lightweight, and the breathable mono mesh upper similarly keeps weight to a minimum. PWRTAPE is added for targeted support and durability.
They create the firmer feel that fast racers are looking for and help to guide the foot through your stride, providing a touch of extra support. They can also help create a rocker feel, with the stiffness allowing the shoe to pivot – as the toe goes down, the heel must come up, easing you into your next stride.
Although stiff, they do flex, providing an energised pop of forward momentum as the plate fights to retain its shape.
Each brand, and almost every shoe, uses a plate differently. Different shapes, thicknesses, and designs are used to prioritise a different aspect of performance. Some aim exclusively to guide the stride, while others focus solely on propulsion.
One of the biggest brands in sport – and the creators of Usain Bolt’s record-breaking spikes – PUMA have entered the road running market with the Nitro range.
Produced by injecting super-critical nitrogen into the raw material used to make their midsoles, PUMA use Nitro and Nitro Elite to give you the edge whichever shoe you pick.

It might say road, but we don’t just mean pounding closed-off streets on race day. Road shoes are predominantly for the pavement.
They feature flat rubber traction for confident footing in the city and enhanced cushioning to soak up the strain of every stride.
Best for Everyday Mileage
To cope with all the miles you run, shoes for everyday mileage are built to last.
Thicker rubber on the outsole withstands huge amounts of pavement pounding, and a thicker, more durable upper also helps to improve longevity.
The other priority is comfort, with soft materials around the entrance and midsole foams designed to cushion, feel great, and last.
Because of the extra protection, daily mileage shoes tend to be heavier than their race day and tempo counterparts.
