Puma Faas 200 BOLT Running Shoes

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that we are expecting three more FAAS models to come out and PUMA did not disappoint. They just brought out PUMA FAAS 200 BOLT

It retails for $80, a $5 less than the PUMA Faas 250. So if PUMA Philippines decides to bring it on our shores, we can expect it will demand at least PHP4,000+ out of our pockets

I look forward that this version will have better ground control but there's something that bothers me.  We can see that the heel height has been reduced in Faas 200 however the upper construction went backwards.  Faas 250 has a lighter and more breathable air mesh, in my opinion.  They should've kept that in FAAS 200
Is PUMA FAAS 100 next? Only time will tell. For now, all I can do is daydream and wipe the drool off my face as I wait for the day it arrives

FAAS 200 BOLT also comes in White/Black colorway

I think I saw this one already at Puma in Resort's World last Sunday. I only recognized the outsole from the photo you have posted if I'm not mistaken and it retails at Php 3,950.00.

what do you mean by ground control?
at yan lang advantage ng puma 200?
yung suot ni bolt picture above di ba 250 un?

Daves said...

yup! faas 250 nga ung gamit ni bolt. i was hoping na thinner ung midsole nung faas 200 since it should be more minimal based on their scale. haven't picked up both shoes at the store for a closer and visual inspection though

gonna get this? i thought you were aiming for a pair of brooks? i think the faas series is more aimed (or marketed) as a racing flat more than a barefoot/minimalist shoe

I saw 250 already sa BHS :) i'll check it again, parang narrow kasi yung toe box nya eh

I have had the 200's for 6 months now. Absolutely hands down the most comfortable short distance 1-5k running shoe I have ever worn. I liked them so much I just purchased 250's. I am looking forward to breaking them in and reporting back. I will say first impression the 250 is much more firm.
