Puma Golf has introduced its Faas Lite Mesh shoe.
“Weighing in at only 6.5 ounces, the Faas Lite Mesh is lighter than other golf shoes in the market,” said Tom Manthe, global marketing manager for Puma Golf.
“The new, spikeless footwear style 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 in the minimalist shoe offers golfers a allows for a more natural stride and posture during the swing.
The zero heel-to-toe drop refers to the sole of the shoe staying the same height, much like a foot would stand if wearing no shoe.
Strategically placed corrugated flex grooves move with the foot for a more natural movement. The grooves provide flexibility and increased ground contact throughout the swing for improved traction and stability.
The Faas Lite Mesh features SmartQuill traction technology to provide directional grip elements to enhance ground contact for improved stability and traction.
Evertrack carbon rubber in the forefoot and heel are in place to provide durability, while an OrthoLite sockliner provides comfort and enhanced fit.
Puma Golf will also be releasing the Faas Lite, an extremely lightweight and waterproof golf shoe.
A combination of FaasFoam+ (a proprietary blend of foam and rubber that is 25 per cent lighter than previous foams) and lightweight materials in the lining package and tongue are in place to provide a light and comfortable shoe that weighs just 8.7 ounces.
Microfibre leather with stormCELL offers lightweight performance and waterproof protection. L
