Why an elite athlete chooses to wear this new running shoe
If avoiding injury is a priority for every elite athlete, then really, there is no greater decision than choosing the right shoes.
âShoes are the most important piece of equipment for every runner,â acknowledges Australian high jumper and Puma Ambassador Nicola McDermott, who recently – and sensibly – broke the national record for the high barrier of 2 meters.
But the 2018 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist chose the new Puma Nitro Deviate not just for its speed, but rather for its exceptionally unique design.
âPersonally, for me, high quality shoes have been a big part of my journey as an athlete to stay unscathed and improve,â she says. “The most recent shoes [iâve added] to my collection are the PUMA Nitro shoes which have a shaped sole to correct the position of my foot while running. Wearing them makes me look forward to working out every day! “
Designed As a daily trainer to make your longer runs much easier, the Nitro Deviate keeps your foot in high comfort while keeping performance paramount.
Highly cushioned yet lightweight, this shoe has a soft yet stable underfoot, giving you exceptional thrust with a soft, supple landing with every step. Its flexible plate propels you forward during the toe while improving energy return every time.
The aesthetically pleasing low boot silhouette features distinct traction on the outsole, a breathable mesh upper, reflective branding and a spoiler for safer and more permanent visibility.
It’s a shoe designed to make running easier, even on the toughest days.
âWhen I don’t feel like training, I remember that emotions don’t dictate what I do, it’s my intentions and my state of mind,â Nicola reveals. âSome days you just have to show up and finish the workout knowing nothing will be wasted. I also keep my “ why ” when I run – when I have a strong goal behind my training, nothing gets in my way [in me] end the sessions. “
Just slipping on this innovative running shoe will remind you why you wanted to run in the first place.
“I run because I love the freedom and the feeling of running, âreveals Nicola. âThe places I can run in Australia are amazing, and with this gift I have had the chance to travel the world with it. I keep running to share that nothing is impossible for those who believe!
