Updates to Puma Faas 700 v3
- Puma took the conservative route when it comes to changes in the 3rd iteration of the Faas 700. The new model is practically a replica of the previous one except for slight changes in the upper and the outsole. This version’s upper offers a lighter mesh with more flexibility. It gives the upper a more adjustable feature that is not found in the older model. Puma gives runners a better wraparound feel in the 700 v3.
- One aspect that helped with the weight reduction is the removal of the prominent overlays in the midfoot and the heel. Puma relies basically on very minimal overlays that are connected to the midfoot to hold the heel in place. For this reason, the upper becomes more forgiving and more attuned to natural running than the past edition.
- The upper also features a forefoot overlay that is not as thick as before. Again, it gives the shoe more flexibility and adds more space in the toe box. Outsole modification is made possible by the deeper flex grooves for improved flexibility.
Puma Faas 700 v3 size and fit
The fit of the Faas 700 v3 is average with a wide toe box. The roomier toe box is basically what differentiates the prior model with the new one. Everything else is the same as the heel and midfoot have decent locked down fee. Medium is the width of this shoe. Sizing is accurate in options 7 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 12 for the women’s.
The outsole is made of thick rubber with deep flex grooves for much-needed flexibility. Puma covers the outsole with a combination of EverTrack in high-wear areas and EverRide+ for better traction and cushioning.
Puma’s reliable FaasFoam man’s the midsole for that very plush ride. It runs the length of the shoe, which helps with the transition from landing to take off. The FaasFoam is quite durable for a longer-lasting midsole performance.
The new upper is made lighter by a feather-light mesh for excellent breathability and lesser overlays for overall support and structure. Light and flexible is the name of the game in the upper as the heel has limited overlays to keep the area secure while the forefoot is fitted with flexible and thin protection. An Ortholite sockliner provides anti-microbial properties and enhances the cushioning and fit of the Fass 700 v3.
