Puma Fast Rider (Blue/Yellow & Navy/Silver)


Dropping as part of a ‘Nylon Running’ range, the Puma Fast Rider gets a release this summer that see’s two fresh colourways combining bold and subtle elements.

First seeing the light of day in 1980, the Fast Rider was known for it’s ‘Federbein’ outsole, to us English folk that’s German for ‘suspension strut’. Originally a performance shoe, the material treatment on this release takes the shoe into lifestyle territory. Nylon and suede blend on the upper with a leather puma stripe topping things of nicely, all with classic puma branding on the side. The closer you look into the material and detail on this shoe, the more it grows on you.

The choice of colourways is appealing, you can go bold with the blue/yellow or tone it down with the navy/silver, something for the summer and winter – though you wouldn’t want a drop of rain to hit these. The gum outsole is definitely something to be noted on the blue/yellow make-up, it’s always a win when a gum sole gets used on runners.

A solid release from Puma with a friendly price tag of £49.99.

Available from Crooked Tongues now.
