The designers of the Puma Faas 600 S have designed a sneaker that offers a great amount of stability for runners who enjoy running for long distances. The “S” in the Puma Faas 600 S is for stability. However, despite the fact that this sneaker was designed for stability many runners have praised the support of this sneaker along with the superb level of comfortability the sneaker provides.

This Puma Faas 600 S has been specifically designed for women runners and offers a superb level of stability and comfort. There is a male version of this sneaker as well, however, if you are a  female you will have found your dream sneaker in this particular model of the Puma sneakers.  The shoe fits well and thanks to the incredible shoe liner found in the midsole (the midsole offers a plethora of features that makes this sneaker stand out amongst its competitors) you will be able to rest assured to know that your foot will stay in place throughout the duration of your running.

Lastly, the color scheme has been received very well by many of the runners. The Puma Fans 600 S is visually appealing and has been designed and styled especially for women.

Outsole
Outsole

Outsole

The rubber outsole, along with the entire sneaker is visually pleasing. However, it has not been received very well by runners. This is due in part, and rightly so, to the outsole being made of a very lightweight rubber material that makes it very difficult to keep your footing on wet terrain. Aside from running on tarmac or dry terrain runners must be wary of the terrain otherwise the outsole just doesn't have the design to keep the runners gripped to the ground.

This is especially true when running across rain drains or wet metal plates on the ground.
Midsole
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole is where many of the features are and where the sneaker offers many of the amazing benefits to the runner. The Faas-Foam is found in the midsole and provides great amounts of comfortability to the runner as well as helping to absorb a great deal of the impact as the runner races.

The inclusion of the Faas- Foam has been complimented by many runners for the joyous experience it offers the runner. The designer had it in their mind that runners will be able to use these sneakers every day if they feel like it. The inclusion of this Foam material makes it less strenuous on the runner and they can run for a longer duration of time without having to worry about wear and tear of the sneaker.

Along with the inclusion of the Faas-Foam is the SupportCell that offers a great deal of support for the runners. The support that the sneaker provides for the runner has been thought by many runners as the hallmark of this sneaker. I would be very safe to say that the “S” would be better used for support instead of stability.

The midsole also provides the OrthoLite sicklier which holds the foot in place and allows the sneaker to grasp the foot and hold it in place.
Upper
Upper

Upper

The upper is made of an Air mesh that provides the maximum amount of breathability and gives the sneaker it’s lightweight quality. The laces have been specifically designed to provide a great level of snugness. You can rest assured that once you have tied your laces they will stay laced from the beginning of your run to the end of your run.

Although this might sound mediocre, it is very important for runners to know they can continue their run without having to stop and constantly re-lace their laces.
Weight
Weight

Weight

The median weight of this sneaker is about 8.1 oz for women.The weight for men is a bit more. However, for both the women and the men the weight will be slightly more or less depending on the size of the person size.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

Thanks to the mesh found in the upper the amount of breathability the sneaker provides the runner has also been well received by many runners. The amount of breathability for a runner is quite important as it allows the runner to run for a long amount of time without adding any kind of stress on the runner's foot or ankle.

This is perhaps one of the highly well-received aspects of the sneaker, but by no means, the only well received the compliment of the sneaker. It is always important that any model of footwear allows some level of breathability for the wearer and the designers kept this in mind.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

The comfort these sneakers provide is due in great part to the Faas-Foam that is found in the midsole. Which offers a great amount of stability but also has the added effects of offering a superb amount of comfort to the runner.

The comfort the sneaker allows is due in great part to the sock-liner that locks the foot in place and allows for a much more snug fit for the runner.
Style

These sneakers have a great amount of durability and thanks to the material that is used in the upper. It provides superb amounts of breathability to the runner and is incredibly durable against the road and curb terrain. However, it should be noted that a majority of complaints were made about how these sneakers weren't very resilient against the weather. Particularly when it rains, or if an individual is running during while there is a heavy fog. Many runners complained about how easily their sneakers would be soaked due to the wet atmosphere or weather.

The rubber outsole of this sneaker has been received very poorly by some runners. This may come as a shock as the many compliments in the review would suggest that this sneaker was flawless.
