Fun and fast without the presense of extras

After studying a few of the fastest runners inside the worldspecifically their movement, foot placement and overall running techniquePUMA developed a new technology called アグ クラシックショート (http://unipaints.com/images/ugg.html) BioRide on your Faas collection.

For people who weren't born in the gifts of Usain Bolt or Haile Gebrselassie, BioRide is designed to help our feet move more just like the elites. Quite simply, the Faas allows the foot to flex naturally, offering a smoother ride and natural stability.

PUMA sent me a set of two hot pink Faas 500s for a test run, a shoe that is the core of the new collection with regards to weight and support. The Faas 250 for example, is two ounces lighter, as well as being advertised like a super minimalist racer.

Coming in at 7.5 ounces (in any women's size 8), the Faas 500 is three ounces lighter than my everyday trainer, in addition to a ton more challenging.

Which i run inside a light stability shoe, i absolutely must have been a little nervous that this Faas 500, a neutral trainer, wouldn't offer enough support. I assemble the Faas 500 through multiple workouts, and so i wasn't disappointed.

I am a slight overpronator, and often contain it band issues right after i run in neutral shoes. The Faas collection uses something Puma calls Groove, the industry carved out area around the outside midsole. It compresses upon impact providing added cushioning. Because there's no Groove to the medial side, the shoe naturally corrects for slight overpronation.

The Fass 500 doesn't offer a great deal of support, however, if you might be mild overpronator, it may well work. I wouldn't, however, recommend them for heavier runners or severe overpronators (Check http://unipaints.com/images/ugg.html for evaluation the Faas 800).

When considering cushioning, the Faas 500 rides akin to a Cadillac. I liked the plush feel of the shoe, but runners who enjoy a stiffer ride could consider looking elsewhere. The top is super comfortable, but offers little support.

The Faas 500 fits true to size, although the toe box is a touch narrow. For those who have a broad forefoot, or as being a bit more room to spread your toes, you can see the Faas 500 too snug.

Due to the styling, the faux suede to the upper gives a cool old style look, however the shoes don't breath as along with a mesh trainer much like the Puma Faas 550.

Check for overview of the Puma Faas 550.

Overall, the Puma Faas 500 is a plus lightweight training shoe that's http://unipaints.com/images/aj.html good for neutral runners and slight overpronators who sadly are searching for a fun and fast shoe without having a great number of extra special features.
