2010 Fall Running Shoe Review Homepage

Unlike most sequels, the Velosis 2 is better than the original. Puma improved its last to give the shoe a better fit but still one that favors lower-volume feet because of its narrow midfoot and relatively pronounced arch. Our testers call the Velosis a “good cushioned trainer for the neutral runner or slight pronator” and enjoy the comfortable ride, especially for recovery runs. Although it isn’t a shoe for faster-paced efforts, the heel structure with the cushioning unit gives a supportive feel that is consistent at lower speeds.
