What we say:

 

As you'd expect, the PUMA IGNITE PWRADAPT Leather 2.0 is very similar to its predecessor, the IGNITE PWRADAPT Leather. Aside from a slightly different feeling in the leather upper, the rest of the technology remains unchanged. Although this is supposed to be an updated version of the original, we found the upper to be ever so slightly less breathable than the original PWARADAPT Leather. Although we think it feels a bit better to the touch and has a slightly higher quality, it is probably less waterproof in the long run as well, as it offers only a 1 year guarantee instead of 2 years. However, the rest of the golf shoe is pretty much unchanged, which means it has really grippy traction and immense comfort. This newer IGNITE PWRADAPT Leather 2.0 boasts an upgraded insole, which only adds to its already amazing comfort. Throw solid overall support in the mix and you have a really good all-round performance golf shoe.
