Size and fit

This addition to Puma’s running-inspired casual shoes is exclusively available in women’s sizing. However, the mix-and-match of hues in the Future Rider Mix allows men to rock this pair of kicks as well.

For those wide-feet wearers, it is suggested to go half a size up for ample forefoot room. For that level of comfort, Puma’s Rider Foam cushioning technology provides that shock-absorbing comfort, adding an extra bounce with every step.

Puma Future Rider Mix Style

This multi-colored, multi-textured trainer is anything but basic. Although made with the complexities of various fabrics and prints, Puma ensures that dressing one’s feet with the Puma Future Rider Mix will make any wearer stylish yet still feel comfortable.

  • Unleash the inner football fanatic and throw on some black jogging pants, a shirt, and a pair of the Puma Future Rider Mix Burnt Russet/Palace Blue colorway.
  • One can always keep it casual in denim jeans, a black shirt, and the Future Rider Mix teal green/red/gray/yellow colorway on feet.

Notable Features

Much like its parent model, the Future Rider, the Future Rider Mix retains the essential details like the exposed tongue, TPU gel inserts at the heel, slimmer Federbein outsole, Puma Rider Foam cushioning, and textile tab on the lateral heel side.

Apart from the muted color selection of the Future Rider Mix, this model features a colorful printed, knit upper with a mixture of suede, ripstop nylon, and leather. 

Another standout detail is the abstract wavy pattern details on the shoestrings that pop against a solid hue of either orange or blue tongue.

Puma Future Rider Mix History

To celebrate 40 years of Puma’s popular Fast Rider shoe, it launched the Rider Pack in late 2019. The pack consisted of a reissue of a Fast Rider OG, Future Rider, and Style Rider.

Known to be one of the lightest running shoes in the ‘80s, Puma Fast Rider featured Puma’s Federbein outsole. The inverted V pattern provided traction and grip as it was made to imitate an automotive suspension to give a more cushioned road feel. 

The upgraded Rider models still carry the Federbein outsole but in a slimmer frame. Another addition to the upgrade of the look is the crazy yet fun color-blockings on these designs that infuse classic and modern vibes to fit the street style fashion of today.

In March 2020, Puma released the Puma Future Rider Mix taking inspiration from the company’s strong influence on the African football culture. Detailed printed laces and the selection of rich colors are references to iconic Puma jerseys of pas African football team.

Nice to know

  • The Future Rider Mix comes in an extra pair of plain teal green laces.
