Puma FAAS 600 – Review
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a bit of a traditionalist shoe wise. I am lucky that I seem able to run in a variety styles drops etc but I find that I am more comfortable in more traditional shoes. The Puma FAAS 600 fits into that remit. The Puma FAAS range number the shoes with the lowest number being the more minimally cushioned. The FAAS 600 is right in the middle of the range. I was looking for go to everyday shoe that would be happy on the roads and the occasional bit of gravel path. It is designed as a neutral shoe but they do also do stability model.
It looks like a straightforward shoe not overly flashy and pretty traditional in looks but I like it. It may not be to everyone’s style but it works for me. It is also at a pretty reasonable price point and if you shop around you can get it on offer.
Well I bought mine last summer and they were my go to shoe for the winter. Comfortable for long and short distances not overly cushioned but enough for the long runs. They took everything winter could throw at them. An unfussy but reliable shoe for me and I comfortably ran near to 700 miles before I decided they were ready to retire. So any Negatives? Well I will say the sizing is a wee bit narrow so much so next time I’d go for half a size bigger. Other than that they just do what they say. So the question will I buy more? Yes as an everyday go to shoe these have a good place in my shoe selection. Although I am interested to try the new Puma Ignite as an alternative. Just to add at present I have some FAAS 1000 that I’m using for recovery runs that I’ll review shortly.
