Inspired by minimalist running, PUMA Golf has unveiled the Faas Lite Mesh, calling them the lightest shoe in golf.
Weighing in at only 6.5 ounces, the Faas Lite Mesh is lighter than other golf shoes in the market.
Like many of the other "hybrid" shoes, the new, spikeless footwear is designed to take you from the street to the course in lightweight, maximum comfort and trend-setting style.
The zero heel-to-toe drop gives golfers a barefoot feeling and allows for a more natural stride and posture during the swing. Strategically placed corrugated flex grooves move with the foot for a more natural movement. The grooves provide optimal flexibility and increases ground contact throughout the swing for improved traction and stability.
The Faas Lite Mesh features SmartQuill traction technology that provides directional grip elements to enhance ground contact for improved stability and traction. Evertrack carbon rubber in the forefoot and heel provide long lasting durability and an OrthoLite sockliner provides long lasting comfort and enhanced fit.
Additionally, PUMA Golf will be releasing the Faas Lite, an extremely lightweight and waterproof golf shoe. Weighing in at just 8.7oz, the shoe features a combination of FaasFoam+ (a proprietary blend of foam and rubber that is 25-percent lighter than previous foams) and lightweight materials in the lining package and tongue create an extremely light and comfortable shoe. Microfiber leather with stormCELL provides super lightweight performance and waterproof protection.
For women, the Faas Lite and Faas Lite Mesh have all the same features and benefits as the men's versions but weigh in even lighter at 7.0 oz and 5.5 oz, respectively.
Both the Faas Lite and Faas Lite Mesh are available in is available in three colorways - Brilliant Blue/Limeade, Vibrant Orange/White and White/Black for the Faas Lite Mesh and the Faas Lite is available in White/Vibrant Orange, White/Black/Brilliant Blue and Black/Castle Rock.
