PUMA has launched the all new PowerCat 1.10 football boot which is the German brand’s successor to the v-Konstrukt series. It’s the first major release of 2010 and it’s bound to bring added interest to the ‘Power boot’ category, currently dominated by the likes of adidas and Nike.
Following on from the v1.10, which got a pretty rough ride on release but has risen up the charts in recent weeks due to some better thought out colourways, the PowerCat aims to marry engineering and comfort.
The boot comes in a Black / White / Wild Lime colourway and undoubtedly most attention will focus on the injected 3D PUMA Power Shooting Technology, located in the boot’s kicking area. This new feature increases shooting power whilst maintaining the ball’s touch and feel.
Due to its extremely high rebound properties, the PUMA 3D PST does not absorb the typical amount of energy felt upon ball impact and releases more power with every shot.
The kicking area is increased thanks to the off-centred lacing system and the PUMA PowerLast follows the foot’s natural contours allowing it to mould to the player’s foot and provide a glove like fit.
Made from super soft K-Leather, these boots provide ultimate comfort for the athlete. The PowerCat 1.10 not only provides great protection, power and comfort – through the blade stud configuration the player will also experience smooth ground penetration and pressure distribution whilst still being able to move around quickly.
The PowerCat 1.10 will make its global debut on football pitches around the world on Saturday and is expected to be worn by the likes of Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidic and Wayne Hennessey.
A second colourway of White / Puma Royal / Team Gold is planned in March.
I’m very excited and interested in this release from puma. The konstrukt was a pretty good boot and this is likely to be better!
And hopefully everyone will be satisfied with the colourway “this” time. 😉
i think they look very similar to predator absolutes.. anyone else who’ve seen them noticed that?
K-leather in black made by Puma, sounds like this PowerCat is my kind of football boot.
these boots are already released in australia. they are quite nice, a bit on the heavy side for me tho. il stick with my v1.10s
I tried a pair of these on a couple of times. They remind me of a Laser II but instead of a dozen plastic ribs there are just a few. PUMA is really pushing the fact that these shoes are wide (like the laser II)as opposed to the super narrow fit of the V-speed line. The future colors are great also. The other shoe to look for is the Diego from PUMA this is the redesign on the King XL and also a bit on the wider side in order to fit more people.
A very solid looking boot, should help Puma rack up the sales figures.
these are in the new zealand rugby magazine
Already out here in Aus. Not a bad looking boot. This is coming from a Nike diehard.
it’s out in malaysia … looks like a decent boot … kinda like the early adidas f series with k upper …
should be a very good boot
glad to see that they used K-Leather as opposed to calfskin on the vKonstrukt III. As a tough tackling midfielder with a pair of vKontrukts that have gotten me through same hard times, I’m really looking forward to this boot and it seems pretty good to me 😉 albeit a little on the wide side and perhaps appears a bit plain as well? maybe it’s just me
The other colourway is white and blue with gold accent…. I saw someone wearing in an arabic league last week. He was kicking off so it had a closeup of the ball and the Powercat’s
cant wait for the footy-boots review
thats kinda shockingg from some of the pictures they look like quite light boots… are they really as heavy as lazers ?
Why is there a PUMA powercat J.
The asian version is different looking and classier.
If you are a defender/ defensive mid, get these. The protection they offer is unbelievable.
Any way you can gey iyt
i like !
i like it. it is the best puma boots ever better that nike mercurial but the price sucks hate the price
These are probably the best boots ever made for the likes of a goalkeeper. The fact that the studs are in small quantities and very long is a great advantage for keepers as it allows them to dive with much greater force than any other boots. A pure pleasure to wear.
