The classic Puma R968 running shoe has been retro’d on numerous occasions over the years to appeal to sneaker collectors. But with the latest rebirth of the popular jogging shoe, it looks like Puma is going back to its performance roots.

An upgrade in every sense of the word, the Puma Future 968 Lite replaces the bulk seen on the OG R968 with a lighter, more runner-friendly frame complete with a list of advanced performance technology. The shoe’s upper is lighter, more breathable, and features less restricting overlays for an all-around comfortable fit. Its BioRide technology in the midsole offers responsive cushioning, all the while helping curb foot fatigue. The 968 Lite comes with a plush OrthoLite insole made from a memory foam material for the most customized footing possible. A flexible EveryReady outsole rounds out the timeless jogger from Puma.

The Puma Future R968 is available at Puma retailers globally.
