Puma have gone all out with the their World Cup colourways this year!
After witnessing the subtle colouring of the PST and sole of the Puma PowerCat 1.10 Tricks, we certainly weren’t expecting this blaze of colour in the Puma v1.10 Tricks!
The Puma v1.10 Tricks are described as Navy/Fluro Peach/Red – but let’s be honest; that doesn’t really do them justice!
The Lava effect is not only one of the most striking we’ve seen on a boot all year -' but it actually serves a purpose.
The Puma v1.10 Tricks are designed to complement the special Africa Unity Kit.
As you’ll remember – Puma’s Africa Unity Kit starts as a Sky-Blue shirt, before fading into Earth-Brown Shorts and Socks. These football boots are coloured to represent the raw volcanic power of the lava underneath the ground.
Pretty smart, right? We’re also fans of the signature Puma stripe up the side that fades up the boot, which makes the whole boot look like it’d be hot to the touch!
An interesting move by Puma is the choice to replace all of their signature MicroFibre canvas on the upper, with a more frictionless, waterproof Synthetic leather. We reckon this might be to keep players feet warm and dry in the South African winter during the Wold Cup.
If there’s one thing we’d have changed – we’d have loved to have seen the Yellow insole (that you can see through the clear UNiX heel counter) coloured black instead to give the boot a really lethal look!
Here’s a quick look at the v1.10 Tricks in action with the new Africa Unity kit – with a great close up of the boot at the end.
But that’s just our take – what do you think?

real leather only please none of this synthetic.
I like them, but I think the v1.08 tricks with the puma’s skeleton was a little cooler. I would get these, but I don’t want to be called a flamer.
puma has pulled off the flame look with out being tacky or cliche, well done. too bad the v1.10 doesnt fit my foot like the 08 did. those pwr cats tho…
Great colourway BUT COULD SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NORMAL PWRCAT AND V1.10 AND THE TRICKS VERSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ZC – There isn’t one, as always with Puma’s ‘Tricks’ boots – it’s simply just to denote a particularly unorthodox colour scheme.
Like Adipurity said, the v1.08 had the X-Ray Cat, and the v1.06 had digital camo.
So unfortunately, there’s no new tech-specs to share, sorry!
hi kyle, i’ve a question. is this boot made of the cheap-looking synthetic leather? If yes, does it have any advantages over the usual Puma textile on the normal v1.10’s?
Hi sasi – I can tell by the ‘cheap looking’ part of your comment you’re not a fan of synth leather! The advantages that spring to mind are that it’s waterproof and more friction resistant. Considering these are designed for the World Cup (which is being held in South African winter-time) the waterproof factor might come in very handy!
Oh thanks kyle. i would have gotten it had it been cheaper.
It costs SGD$199 here, hardly a reasonable price for a boot that uses a material that is more widely used for 2nd/3rd grade boots. I know, they’ll rebutt by sayin’ it has a carbon fiber soleplate.but do u think it’s worth it?
i really want a pear of them but they cost way to much for me
I have owned these cleats for some time now, and i can barely get them off my feet i just love them so much. They have ripped down the side but a little tape can’t hurt anything
