Earlier this week, we brought you release details on the Puma PowerCat 1.12 Graphic, that was given the title “Dia del Futbol“. Well, just yesterday we received a pair in that we are able to profile in more detail.
There is a lot of craziness going on with this design, including the fact that both boots are completely opposite colors. Puma’s Graphic collection has always twisted the norms of design and pushed the boundaries of fans imagination. It is a case of finding ways to creating designs that clash with the natural expectations pf players without making them turn in the opposite direction and run in fear for their fashion sense.

Other than design, what differentiates these from prior PowerCat releases is the use of a microfiber, textured upper. It lightens the overall weight of the boot (dropped to from 10.2oz to 9.4oz) while also offering players an altered level of performance. On regular PowerCat releases, Puma uses a super soft K-leather. Added a more creative look is a layer of strategically positioned hieroglyphics right across the surface of the boot.
