Puma introduces Faas Lite Mesh 2.0

Published

on

Today, Puma Golf announced its release of the Faas Lite Mesh 2.0, a comfortable performance sneaker disguised as a golf shoe. Weighing just 6.8 ounces, the 2.0’s are lightweight, versatile, spikeless, and changing the feel of footwear on the golf course.

The 2.0 model takes features from the original Faas Lite Mesh shoes, and combines them with different style, additional heel comfort, bonded construction and thermoplastic urethane (TPU) support. New enhancements on the shoe will increase comfort and stability for on-course performance and off-course enjoyment.

The Faas Lite 2.0 combines technology with comfort and style, creating a shoe that you will want to wear whether you’re walking 36, grabbing dinner with your friends after a round, or even heading to the gym,” said Grant Knudson, head of footwear for Puma Golf.” The 2.0 version includes new, strategically placed support pieces that provides increased stability and added support during your swing.”

Puma Golf utilizes technology in areas of comfort, performance, and visual appeal in their newest release. A single layer of mesh enhances breathability and reduces weight, while SmartQuil traction provides directional grip elements to improve stability and ground contact. An Ortholite Sockliner provides increased cushioning, and a stitchless, mid-foot support paddle lends added reinforcement throughout the golf swing.

Also featured in the shoe is FaasFoam+, a blend of foam and rubber that is 25 percent lighter than previously used foam, according to the company. EverFoam in the collar allows the shoe to shape around the contours of a golfers’ foot, and a new mesh tongue increases comfort and further breathability. A high abrasion resistant carbon rubber on the bottom of the shoe ensures lasting durability.

With an MSRP of $90, the Faas Lite Mesh will be available on June 1 in three colorways, Turbulence/White/Grenadine, White/Black/Crimson and White/Turbulence. Each shoe comes with two lace options allowing golfers to customize the look they want.

    The only thing golf related about these shoes is the word golf written on them. Three times.

    You don’t need that on real golf shoes.

      “SmartQuil traction provides directional grip elements to improve stability and ground contact.”

      If you look at the bottom you’ll notice that these have more traction than your regular show.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.
