PUMA Faas 100 R Women's Running Shoes

Strengthen your feet and enhance speed with the Faas 100 R. It's built for runners who want to feel light and fast as well as get the most out of the ground beneath their feet. Ideal for training, this shoe has the least amount of cushioning in the Faas line with a 0mm heel to toe drop that helps strengthen feet and lower extremities over time. Lightweight FaasFoam+ is packed into the midsole for increased resiliency and step-in-comfort. The high-rebound EcoOrthoLite® sockliner provides higher responsiveness through the gait cycle, while the gusseted tongue secures fit. Lastly, the minimal yet highly breathable single layer mesh is sandwiched between bonded overlays and an internal suede forefoot support structure to provide an extremely lightweight one-piece upper. It sounds like a lot. But it's lighter than heck. You can thank us after you smash your next PR. 30 DAY TEST RUN: Go ahead. Get them dirty. Put them through their paces.

I have now owned four pairs of Pumas, every one I have loved for various reasons. Mainly because they did exactly what I needed them to. I purchased the Puma FAAS 250 3 years ago. They are still going strong and my favorite running shoe, Light weight good minimalist. However they have taken the toll of 3 years, holes and worn out. So I ordered the FAAS 100 they were very close to the 250, only lighter and prettier. I put them on and they felt stiff but most new shoes do. I started my run a speedy 3 miles. Mile one I noticed they were rubbing my ankle enough for me to notice which is saying something... but most new shoes rub in some way or another. Buy 1 1/2 miles I could feel the shoe digging into my heel like a bullet. I finished my run and as I returned to stretch some one pointed out that I was bleeding. And I was. The ENTIRE back of my sock was drenched in blood and I had a chuck of me missing from the back of my ankle on my left foot, my right foot wasn't so severe but I was bleeding there too. The holes in my ankles will take a couple weeks to heal and so I decided to return the shoe. The rub is mainly because the material is very plasticy, not stretchy or pliable. It isn't going to adjust it's self it is made to stay that shape. My friend bought the same pair of shoes and did not have as a severe of problem as I did.She did say she only wears certain socks with them. I assume my pronation and overall shape and form are part of the problem too as the socks I was wearing were actual 'running" socks and they came up way past my wound. Basically these shoes and me just can't dance. I was terribly sad as my other pumas have only impressed me.
If you decide to buy them and they don't rub your feet I am certain you will love them. The rest of the shoe with the 0mm degree drop is fantastic. And hopefully they will last as long as my other FAAS did. I wish this wasn't the outcome for me but it was.
ProsValue for money, Style/Design, light weight
