Updates to Puma Faas 600 v3
- The 3rd version of the Puma Faas 600 may not look very different from its predecessor, the 600 v2. It still has that robust, modern look that’s visually appealing. This time around, the upper unit uses much lesser stitching compared to the previous version. It’s a way to ensure that the upper remains comfortable and intact all the time.
- The Faas 600 v3 utilizes an engineered air mesh to bring breathable coverage and weave mesh panels to add a glove-like fit. The upper looks like a woven cloth that’s lightweight, flexible and responsive. It doesn’t bear much weight and it doesn’t restrict or limit the natural movement of the foot.
- The midsole unit of this cheap running shoe makes use of a dual-density foam that has specific purposes to enhance the running experience of the wearer. A lightweight and soft foam serves as the platform on which the foot rests while a more resilient and durable foam acts as the foundation that keeps the mid-sole as efficient, even after multiple uses.
- High-wear areas of the external sole unit are protected by a durable rubber material that can also provide traction over the asphalt. Flex grooves give the foot more flexibility, which is important during the gait cycle.
Puma Faas 600 v3 size and fit
The Puma Faas 600 v3 is true to its size. It follows the regular measurements when it comes to length. It has a standard with when it comes to its heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections. Its semi-curved shape accommodates the natural curvature of the foot, thus allowing runners to acclimate well to it when trying it on.
The Ever-Track+ is a rubber compound that’s placed in critical areas of the outsole where abrasion is most common. It protects the sole unit from potential damage brought about by ground contact, friction or exposure to road debris. Traction is also part of its service, so surface control is achieved by this layer.
Lateral release grooves, flex grooves, and a decoupled heel make sure that the ride is smooth and flexible. They help the sole unit provide a forgiving platform that can adapt to the movements of the foot. It doesn’t make the sole unit rigid or stiff, and it gives the runner more control over performance and efficacy in each run.
The FaasFoam Lite is a cushioning system that gives comfort and protection to the foot. It has a springy nature and its lightweight disposition lets the foot rest well when stepping on it. Each stride becomes comfortable because it delivers full-length cushioning.
The FaasFoam Infinity is a mix of foam and rubber. It’s a very resilient layer that can stand the test of time. It doesn’t easily lose structural integrity even after many uses and it can carry the weight of the runner well without breaking down.
The engineered air mesh is a comfortable material that delivers flexibility and ventilation. It allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to maintain a dry and cool environment for the foot. Weave mesh panels tunes in to the shape of the foot, making the fit more glove-like.
The EverFit 2.0 is a mid-foot securing material that works with the lacing system to hold the foot in place and hug it snugly. It blends well with the fabric of the shoe, so it won’t be uncomfortable to the runner.
The Ortholite Sock Liner is a foam add-on that’s placed above the mid-sole. It adds a bit more cushioning for the foot. It also manages moisture and keeps the interior environments healthy and clean because of its antimicrobial function.
