The overall effect is a featherweight, fast shoe with a more traditional underfoot feel.
The forefoot cushioning has been improved due to a bouncier foam-rubber compound, and the upper features an all-new seamless wrap with sturdy overlays that felt "flexible like a sock."
The Puma Faas 300 hasn’t replaced my
I would compare these to Kinvara like shoes. The price and feel is similar.
Footloose and fancy-free, the ride of this shoe is completely unencumbered yet very responsive.
Perhaps cutting the heel down slightly and flattening out the end of the toe would make these a crazy awesome shoe.
- The shoe is designed with great features wherein updates are made. The first to notice is its color and style. The metallic blue color is combined with peach, making it to stand out in the crowd.
- The upper is also designed using a highly breathable air mesh, thus allow sockless running. The overlays used are also an update and it makes the shoe even lighter.
- On its midsole, Puma also updated the materials. The one piece Faas Foam midsole is a blend of rubber and foam and this technology improves the step-in comfort and the support.
- The outsole is also equipped with the EverTrack Rubber that is intended not only for traction, but also for durability on high-wear areas.
The Faas 300 v3 runs true to standard length and fit. The heel and mid-foot are in medium fit while the forefoot fits narrow to medium fit. The size availability for the men’s version is from size 6 to 14 and 4 to 11 for the women’s version.
The Puma Faas 300 v3 comes with an outsole that utilizes the EverRide+ technology. This is a lighter outsole with enhanced cushioning and improved durability for a smoother ride. On high wear areas, Puma also placed the EverTrack Rubber which is a high resistant type of rubber. There are forefoot flex grooves as well on the forefoot area for easier and smoother heel to toe transition. The outsole design of the shoe is relatively the same to the outer sole configuration of the Faas 300 v4.
The midsole of this shoe are designed with a one-piece Lightweight Faas Foam+. This is Puma’s proprietary midsole design of blended foam and rubber. This technology improves the cushioning, the resilience, and the comfort of the shoe.
Also on its midsole is the molded EVA sock liner that is soft and comfortable, adding responsiveness to the shoe.
The upper is designed with the air mesh material for an optimized breathability. This mesh is light in weight and is supported with no-sew overlays. The upper is also enhanced with the speedCELL designation for maximum speed performance at a lightweight property. The lace closure adds snug fit to the upper.
