The latest Puma release is this pretty sweet PWR-CT1.10 in a Black/White/Aged Silver colorway. I have to admit, I am definitely a fan of this release, both for the actual boot and for the colorway. If you have not noticed yet, my preferred choice of design is something that is pretty minimal but carries a new look. And I feel that this release has a really good balance!
It has been a while since I tested the PowerCat cleat, but I still have them and decided today that it would be a good time to pull them back out of the closet! So, last night I got to take them out and strike some balls. And just as in testing, I found them to be super comfortable and a great boot for shooting. One area where people have raised concerns with this boot is in durability – my pair have lasted extremely well and still look pretty new (I tested them in February) so from my experience I would say durability is not an issue.
If there was one change I could make with the version I tested it would be the lime color used for detailing (which I thought was an improvement compared to the V-Konstruckt release) and Puma have upped it by releasing this colorway! The aged silver look creates a new dynamic on the black primary color that keeps it simple yet new-age. All of the detailing comes in the aged silver color, so if you are looking for something with color these are not going to be the release for you! Another aspect that might turn players off is the weight – they weigh in at 10.4oz. But that is what allows them to be a power boot, designed for striking the ball while also giving you the added advantage of protection. Nice release!
