Puma continue to pack on the new releases with this version in their Tricks series, the Puma PowerCat Graphic. It is not quiet my choice for “Best looking cleat of the year” but I am sure it is going to appeal to many players out there! To use a word, these are bold. The silver and black mix is sure to be easily spotted on the field, with the silver primary color looking almost mirror like. They are named graphic because of the design towards the front outside of the boot that runs under onto to sole and across the inside.
I tested the Powercat’s earlier this year and really liked them, in fact I was using them as my go-to boot for a few months. The ridges along the front of the boot are part of PowereGil technology that is designed to enhance striking power by increasing power behind the ball as it releases from your cleat. Not only have players like Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic and Michael Carrick been wearing these, but the PowerCats were in fact the most worn boots by goalkeepers at this summers World Cup in South Africa! The majority of a goalkeepers game involves punting, goal kicks and clearances so it makes sense for a boot with a kicking technology (PowerGil) to be a preferred choice.
I highly recommend the PowerCat boot as it offers excelled comfort and is great for striking the ball. If silver happens to be your preferred choice, then my advice it to go for these. What are your thoughts on the release and would you choose this colorway?
