Starting things off is the Future Rider, a slimmed-down silhouette with a minimal nylon and suede upper, TPU heel stabilizer, sleek midsole, and nubbed gum outsole. Next up is the Style Rider, a shoe for those who prefer something a touch more beefy. It presents a mesh upper with a dual-layered midsole, extra branded hits, and a waffle outsole. Each uses RIDERFOAM technology for high-rebound performance and comfort. This combination of old and new is part of PUMA’s ever-expanding FUTRO — short for “future meets retro” — project, which takes heritage silhouettes and mixes them with modern-day trends and tech.
And for lovers of the classics, PUMA has also re-released two OG colorways of the Fast Rider — black/orange and blue/yellow. Lightweight and sleek, the onetime high-mileage runner is now set to serve as a beloved lifestyle design, just before it begins its fifth decade of existence.
All three styles are available now on PUMA.com. The Future Rider retails for $90 USD, the Style Rider for an even $100 USD, and the throwback Fast Rider for $80 USD.
