This retro pair is inspired by PUMA's archives from the 1980s, drawing direct influences from one of its most comfortable running pairs, the Fast Rider. Today, the sneaker is revived with a host of luxurious materials such as rough suede and soft leather, as well as padded nylon for a nod to the sneaker's heritage.
PUMA gives the Future Rider a clean white, camel brown and red color palette in this latest offering. Details such as the PUMA branding on the eyestay is finished in gold-toned foil, while other retro touches such as a treaded gum outsole continue to complement the pair.
Elsewhere we see the TPU heel stabilizer come in a bright red hue, the tongue tag and eyestay component appear in smooth leather, and the leather Formstrip overlay sport a row of stitches, giving the pair even more retro-runner touches. Rounding out the Future Rider is its shock-absorbing PUMA Federbein rubber outsole and the PUMA logo on the heels.
Take a look at PUMA's latest Future Rider in "Whis White/Pebble/High-Risk Red" in the gallery above, and keep an eye out for the pair to drop on PUMA's website in the coming weeks, where it shall retail for $80 USD.
