  • Support, comfort and stability are the focus of the 2nd version of the Faas 600 S. This Puma shoe features a more comfortable mesh upper with lesser overlays, a mid-sole that’s thicker and more supportive, and a high-abrasion resistant outsole that’s durable & efficient in delivering traction.
  • The upper unit has been outfitted with a mesh material that has an open construction for breathable support, as well as a material that gives a sock-like fit that’s comfortable and non-irritating to the skin. The traditional lacing system offers a snug fit and the EverFit 2.0 mid-foot lockdown system assists in wrapping the foot securely, but comfortably.
  • A dual-density midsole unit provides the needed cushioning and support the foot needs for a consistently comfortable running experience. Stability is afforded by an Engineered Stability Zone, which cradles the mid-foot and controls the foot’s rate of pronation.
  • An adequately thick rubber compound is placed in the outsole unit. It’s meant to protect the rest of the sole unit from abrasion and wear. It also delivers responsible traction over the surfaces. Flex grooves allow the foot to move more naturally, causing the forefoot to toe-off more efficiently.

The Puma Faas 600 S v2 has a regular running shoe length. It follows the standard measurements to which runners are accustomed. Its heel and forefoot has a medium width, whereas the mid-foot has a medium-to-narrow width. It accommodates the runner who has a medium-sized foot.

The EverTrack+ is an outsole compound that is durable and reliable in terms of delivering protection against wear and tearing. It’s found in critical areas of the external sole unit, so as to protect it from abrasion and potential damage. This material has also been used in some best-selling Puma running shoes.

Flex grooves are placed in the forefoot section. They allow the foot to move more naturally through the gait cycle and cause the toe-offs to be more in tune with how the foot performs.

A dual density foam is placed in the mid-sole unit. The nearest one to the foot is the FaasFoam Lite. It is a lightweight platform that gives cushioning and reliable underfoot support. It carries the foot well and doesn’t let it feel any discomfort because of its soft and springy nature.

The FaasFoam Infinity is a more robust foam that acts as a resilient foundation. It lasts long as it doesn’t break down or lose structural integrity easily. It’s still responsive because it doesn’t make the platform feel stiff or unwieldy.

At the center of the mid-foot lies the Faas Engineered Stability Zone. This is a stability unit that cradles the arch and lets the foot assume a more neutral stance when running or standing idly.

The upper unit makes use of an Engineered Mesh, which delivers breathable and comfortable coverage at all times. It continuously encourages air to enter the shoe and keep the foot cool and dry.

The upper also uses the weave mesh panels. It’s a smooth and pliable material that gives the runner a glove-like fit that essentially pertains to a next-to-foot experience that’s comfortable. It doesn’t irritate the skin, allowing the runner to wear the shoe without socks.

The traditional lacing system works in tandem with the EverFit 2.0, a mid-foot technology that lets the upper hug the foot snugly and securely without being too tight.

The OrthoLite Sock Liner is a molded piece of foam that sits right above the main mid-sole unit. It offers additional cushioning and underfoot support. It also has an anti-microbial capability, which makes the interior of the Puma Faas 600 S v2 clean and healthy.
