COMMENTS

They say it’s the stuff of legends. They say that back in the day it broke the mold, shattering the conventions of what a running shoe should be. They say what they need to in order to sell shoes.

We say the Puma Fast Rider OG is – hyperbole aside – a true head turner.

The features that distinguished this design during the 1980s was its lightness juxtaposed with an in-your-face, aggressive outsole. The features distinguishing it today is its über-bold colourblocking and full-on retro persona.

The Fast Rider is impossible to ignore, and for a vintage re-issue it checks off all of the boxes: it’s got a classic textile upper that relies on suede toe and heel overlays to keep its shape, an EVA midsole to provide basic cushioning, and that wonderfully insane PUMA Federbein outsole.

As we continue to sink ever deeper into the doldrums of winter and have to deal with the countless triple white colourways that are being introduced, isn’t it great to have this blast of tropical colour as a cop-this option?
