Puma Fast Rider OG
Colourway: Hawaiian Ocean/Spectr Yellow [372876_02]
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.
