User reviews:

  • 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.
