Renowned for their “out-there” releases, Puma have released a very colorful version of the PowerCat that would sit comfortably in any modernism gallery! Also known as the PWR-C 1.10 Elektro, it comes in a Skydiver/White/Dandelion colorway. First off, I didn’t even know “skydiver” was a color – but either way I am a huge fan of what Puma has done with this release. The blue/yellow combo really works and the visual art along the side of the boot has an effective look.
The PowerCat is actually a pretty solid performing boot and the revolutionary PUMA 3D Power Shooting Technology featured along the strike zone serves a valid purpose. To the touch, these are like little ridges that overlap across the front of the cleat that are also known as SpringTech foam ridges. The ridges are designed to increase shooting power while maintaining touch and feel on the ball. The benefit of having this technology is that it has high rebound properties that does not absorb the typical amount of energy on ball impact, meaning more power is released when you shoot.
Something else interesting about the release is that Puma have gone with a microfiber upper rather than a k-leather like we have seen on previous PowerCat releases. I am actually going to try get my hands on a pair in order to see what difference this plays in their overall performance, and to get a first hand experience of how the design looks! They currently retail for around $179.99, which is right on par with what we expect for the range.
