It is without a doubt one of the most unique boot to player relationships out there; Marco Reus and the Puma FUTURE 19. For those familiar with the Puma FUTURE series, they are a boot designed to provide players with one of the most customizable fits on the market. Players are treated to a completely fresh new experience thanks to the NetFit lacing system. Depending on how crazy you want to get, you can create dramatically unique fits with the ability to specifically enhance tension using the laces in particular areas.
But, what is unique here is the fact Marco Reus wears the FUTURE 19……..laceless! Yes, the Borussia Dortmund playmaker chooses to wear them with no laces, something he has done since the FUTURE was originally released. Instead, he uses the NetFit upper and structured evoKNIT sock as the form of security to keep him locked in the boot. Given the fact they are all about fit using the laces, there is no way Puma could be happy with how he wears them, right? Probably not. But, you could argue that it gives Puma an opportunity to highlight how the boot has a comfortable, snug fit without any laces The string tightening apparatus then provides an additional way to truly personalize the overall fit.
It is a bold strategy, Cotton. But, in Reus’ case it seems like the naked fit is all he needs to feel secure in his pair!
