PUMA has launched the next evolution of the FUTURE silo and the latest boot that Neymar Jr. will wear. This latest iteration implements a radical new redesign engineered for ultimate agility. It features an innovative FUZIONFIT360 dual mesh upper and integrates PUMA exclusive PWRTAPE technology to enhance support for a space-age adaptive fit, so you can focus on driving the opposition crazy, whether you’re playing with or without laces.
“The introduction of the PWRTAPE technology is an exciting innovation. The placement of the PWRTAPE is based on strain data collected from measuring strain forces on the upper of the boot during a variety of key football movements that include accelerating, running, cutting and kicking. The PWRTAPE has then been integrated in a zig-zag pattern to provide targeted support in the high strain areas. This provides our athletes with optimal support with an ultimate locked in fit so you can move without constraints when performing key movements on the pitch.” – Florian Nemetz, Senior Product Line Manager Teamsport Footwear.
To allow athletes to unlock their creativity, the FUTURE features engineered 3D textures placed in key contact zones to enhance ball grip and control when passing, dribbling, and finishing. Another new upgrade to the FUTURE is an all-new plate that includes a split composition designed for ultimate traction and stability.
The Dual-Density Motion System Outsole is made up of a PEBAX composition in the heel for stability and explosive energy transfer with a flexible TPU composition in the forefoot for enhanced flexibility when making sharp changes of direction. Paired with a lightweight Nano Grip sockliner insole, the technology minimizes foot slippage inside the boot, allowing you to maintain power transfer for explosive movements. As a step toward a better future the upper of the FUTURE features at least 30% recycled materials.
Another important update – Made for her, the new FUTURE Women’s fit has based the volume and instep height on the anatomical shape of a women’s foot for a high performance fit that puts women first.
In terms of the men’s version, the FUTURE will be worn by Neymar Jr., Julia Grosso, Dzsenifer Marozsán and James Maddison.
