Good to know

Another addition to Puma’s long list of men’s low-top sneakers is the Puma Pacer Next Net. Like its core model, it is available in men’s sizes that range from US 7 to 14, including half sizes in between, in D Standard or Medium width. The fit is generally true to size. Since sizes are limited to men’s sizing only, ladies who wish to cop a pair are advised to get 1.5 to 2 sizes down their usual size as an approximate equivalent of their size in women’s.

Its low-top construction, combined with a breathable and soft mesh upper, permits plenty of foot movement, while its net-inspired quarter panel overlays give the needed midfoot support. In-shoe comfort is made possible, thanks to the incorporated Puma’s SoftFoam insoles and padded tongue and collar.

With multiple color options available, buyers could easily find a pair of the Puma Pacer Next Net that suits their style best. This rendition of the Puma Pacer Next features a breathable mesh upper with distinguishable net-inspired midfoot panel overlays for additional support. Its running shoe origins are still evident in its overall construction and material choices. The shoe's minimal façade is further accentuated with just subtle Puma Jumping Cat branding on the tongue.

The Puma Pacer Next Net sneakers are available in "Dusty Coral/ White" and "Elephant Skin/ White" colorways. It also joins the lineup of black sneakers with its tonal "Black" colorway, as well as the collection of Puma white sneakers with its tonal "White" colorway.

The men’s Puma Pacer Next Net is a modern iteration of the Puma Pacer Next shoe. It flaunts the core model’s signature features but with an upgrade midfoot overlays in a different material. In this rendition, the breathable and soft mesh upper is supported by net-inspired quarter panels that hold the laces together and give additional support around the midfoot.

Puma is a German footwear brand founded on October 1, 1948, by Rudolf “Rudi” Dassler shortly after a personal rift with his brother Adi Dassler. Together they formed the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory during the 1920s, but they had to lead separate ways after their falling out. Rudi formed Puma, while Adi established Adidas. 

Puma, like its long-time competition Adidas, is one of the foundations of today's footwear industry. It has established a substantial presence not just in the performance athletic footwear division, but in the lifestyle or casual footwear category as well. Over the years, Puma has been producing top-performance, high-quality, and stylish sneakers that people across generations continue to patronize.

The Puma Pacer Next Net is one of Puma’s currently available sneaker models in the market. It is another contemporary upgrade to the Pacer Next shoe model along with the Puma Pacer Next Cage, Puma Pacer Next Cage Knit, and Puma Pacer Next Cage Knit Premium. It features a breathable mesh upper with net-inspired quarter panels (hence the name) that collectively gives a snug and comfortable fit on foot. It is released in men’s sizing and originally priced at around $70.

  • The Puma Pacer Next Net sneakers also feature a durable rugged outsole for optimum traction.
  • The tongue features a central loop tab for a more secure fit.
