When our friends at Puma sent us over a picture of the new PowerCat, we were all pretty excited to see what they’d come up with for their newest football boot, after launching in a classy Black/White/Wild Lime colour scheme, everyone was curious to see if Puma’s stylists could keep up their hot streak…
And, boy – have they done just that!
This PowerCat is in White/Royal Blue/Gold and really looks the business, designed with the New Italian National Kit in mind, you can see that they’re certainly a great match for the legendary Azzurri who will be out to defend their World Cup title in the summer.
Shockingly enough, the new PowerCat‘s biggest fan isn’t Italian at all – As Puma have broken the news that Nicolas Anelka, an advocate of Puma’s Speed boots sine the v1.06 will be switching from the v1.10‘s to the aggressive PowerCat.
We’re sure there will be much speculation as to why the Chelsea & France marksman is making the jump from one boot to another, but we like to think it’s because this new colourway perfectly matches both his France and Chelsea kits so perfectly, he simply couldn’t turn them down.
The PowerCat 1.10 Boot uses PUMA 3D Power Shooting Technology which delivers unique rebound properties. The Springtech foam in the shark-like gills on the side of the boot are engineered to enhance every shot by putting extra power behind the ball as it catapults off the shoe.
This means the boot intentionally does not absorb the typical amount of energy upon impact with the ball, allowing more power to be released with every shot.
The kicking area is made of a soft, thin leather and a synthetic microfiber around the quarter area, keeping the boot lightweight and easy to perform in. The bladed studs are configured to ensure smooth ground penetration and pressure distribution as well as maximum traction and manoeuvrability.
