This season, PUMA Running celebrates all things Jamaican with the Faas product range. ‘Faas‘ – Jamaican for fast – is part of PUMA‘s Faas Lab, a campaign that celebrates all the elements that go into making Jamaicans so fast, particularly the fastest man in the world, Usain “Lightning” Bolt.
For a brand that’s been better known for its post-sport approach to lifestyle fashion, the Puma Faas 300 and 500 would go down as a positive step “back” into the sporting competitive arena; needless to say, with its trademark infusion of luminating pantones.
The Faas 300 goes Glow. A lightweight style built for runners who defy convention and speed on a daily basis, you’ll light it up on your evening run and at the late night party. Featuring BioRide technology, minimal cushioning and structure, and no heel counter, this shoe is for runners who are ready to fly. With a glow-in-the-dark formstripe and overlay, the Faas 300 Glow is all about looking great while going faas!
Destined to be the talk of the town with a catchy ripstop upper and glow in the dark overlays, the Faas 300 comprises a foam and tricot strobel-lightweight strobel construction.
It also features an EverRide blown rubber outsole which provides extra cushioning and saves weight. Lastly, its ‘PUMA Racing last’ gives the runner a responsive and direct feel of the ground.
The Faas 500 is a lightweight neutral trainer for everyday training, inspired by the rhythm of the world‘s fastest country – Jamaica. It takes design cues from PUMA‘s old school running trainer, the RS1, with its mesh upper, suede, and knack for smooth, controlled strides.
In addition to PUMA‘s signature BioRide Technology, it has a complimentary balance of added structure and cushioning to provide a comfortable run with improved speed and performance.
The Faas 500 features a full-length IdCELL midsole for lightweight cushioning and an elevated toe-off point for an easier and faster push off from the ground. Its breathable sandwich mesh and OrthoLite insole with charcoal agents provide anti-bacteria and moisture management. Finally, its EverTrack outsole in carbon rubber offers extra support and durability.
The Puma AW2011 Faas collection is available at leading Puma stores.
