Amid plenty of speculation, the SoccerBible lifts the lid on the
all new Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots. Set to ignite the power and accuracy category, Puma
have listened to players and created a boot to take on
the adidas Predator and Nike T90 series at their own game.
The SoccerBible has had the luxury of putting a pair of Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots through their paces, in a series of punishing drills and accuracy tests. But before we bring you our play test, our boot review can officially tell you what to expect from these new boots, as we reveal the initial launch colourway with full and exclusive images of the stealthy Black/White/Lime Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots.
The Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots are a great combination of engineering and comfort, and we can see Puma are making great strides with their boot development. Because, just like the v1.10 speed football boots before them, the PowerCat's are unlike any Puma boot we have seen before.
The injected Puma 3D Power Shooting Technology, the fresh Cat branding and the supersoft kangaroo leather make the PowerCat 1.10 a genuine choice for top professionals such as Michael Carrick and Nicolas Anelka.
The standout feature of the PowerCat football boots is the Puma 3D Power Shooting Technology
(Puma 3D PST) located and built-into the boots kicking area. Designed to increase shooting power, while maintaining ball touch and feel, the 3D PST achieves increased shot power through its extremely high rebound properties, absorbing more than the typical amount of energy upon ball impact and releasing more power with every shot.
|For comfort, fit and ball feel, Puma have gone with a natural material and used a supersoft, premium kangaroo leather for the boot's upper.
To enhance ball touch, increase the kicking area and improve pressure distribution, the Puma PowerCat football boots feature an off-centred lacing system, as favoured by many top pro players.
To improve fit, the boots have been formed around Puma's new anatomically-shaped PowerLast, an evolution of the Puma AptoLast. Which once again follows the foot's natural contours for a great fit, but provides more volume in the forefoot and instep allowing the upper to mould to the players foot. To further improve fit and comfort, the anatomically shaped removable sockliner provides cushioning and shock absorption.
The outsole of the Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots have an external TPU-injected heel counter. This is lightweight and 'finger-shaped' to cradle the heel of the foot, and provides optimal support and stability during movement and ball striking, whilst offering protection. The outsole also features a new bladed stud configuration, to ensure smooth ground penetration and pressure distribution, while providing maximum traction and manoeuvrability.
The Puma PowerCat 1.10 football boots are a great follow-up to the Puma v-Konstrukt, they are a comfortable boot that is a departure from the chunkier, more protective feel of the v-Konstrukt series. Puma have been able to develop some unique technology within the competitive power and accuracy market, and we'll be keen to see how the PowerCat's perform. These brand new football boots will hit the shelves and pitches from 6th February, and should cost around £125 GBP.
