    The ride is soft, flexible and resilient, one that offers great feel for the ground without inhibiting the natural movements of the foot.

    It was frustrating having the tongue slide down every time i ran down hill. It was also frustrating that my heel didn’t stay in place.

  • The see through mesh in the upper was updated. It looks great and stylish as it provides structure to the shoe. This design makes the shoe ideal for non-running purposes. Puma also adds reflective details on the heel and toe areas of the shoe for proper visibility on low-light areas.
  • The sole unit was changed not to be softer but rather to be firmer for more stability. The firmness is due to the thick rubber in the sole.

This shoe runs true to size in length and in fit. This shoe is best for narrow to medium size and not for wider feet. The size availability for the men’s version is 5 to 11, and for the women’s version is 3 to 8.


The Puma Faas 600 v2 has an outsole made from the EverTrack+ rubber on high-wear areas of the forefoot and heel to increase the durability. There are also three grooves on the sole and they are placed specifically there to easily collect rocks. This outsole design and material are also used in the Faas 600 v3 running shoe.


The midsole of the Faas 600 v2 have the Molded Rebound Ortholite sockliner that improves the fit and comfort. The FaasFoam Lite is used as well in dual density midsole. This is for the cushioning and comfort. The FaasFoam Infinity, on the other hand, is used for added resilience and responsiveness. The Faas Engineered Stability Zone is also placed in the center of the midsole to make the shoe more stable.


The Faas 600 v2 has an upper made of engineered mesh with weave mesh design, optimizing the breathability and fit. This design leaves a glove-like wrap to the foot. The EverFit 2.0 Technology is also used on the upper in the mid-foot area for an improved security and lockdown feel.
