Puma has dropped two new editions of the company’s Ultra speed boot silo: the Ultra 5 Ultimate and the Ultra 5 Carbon Formula Pack editions.

The new Ultra 5 Ultimate Formula edition kicks into high gear with Puma’s revamped Speedsystem outsole, featuring a springy plate and an innovative stud setup for lightning-fast acceleration. Sprint, cut, and brake faster with FastTrax stud design for multidirectional traction and for ultimate stability the Ultra 5 utilizes an all-new Pwrtape SQD support frame to stabilise the foot inside of the boot without hindering agility and freedom of movement.

The Ultra 5 Ultimate is priced at R4,499 and will be available from 18 July at Puma and Totalsports. Sadly, the Ultra 5 Carbon edition will not be available in South Africa.

Both versions of the Ultra 5 will take to the pitch during the knockout stages of the European Championships and the Copa America as select players switch to the new Ultra 5 on the biggest stages to gain the extra edge.

The boot features a brand-new outsole and stud layout compared to last year’s Ultra model. The new Speedsystem is Puma’s proprietary outsole design that combines a high-performance fibre base material with an external heel counter and a revolutionary stud system to maximize energy return for faster acceleration. The three studs on the heel improve braking, this is because there is a higher traction when rear studs are closer to the centerline.

Puma continues to offer its Women’s Fit with a slimmer fit tailored to the anatomy of a woman’s foot, the Ultra 5 is designed to enhance comfort and performance for female athletes, built different to support the women who make a difference on the pitch. The Ultra 5 Women’s Fit combines the latest Ultra tech, such as Speedsystem outsole and FastTrax stud design, with a bespoke fit designed specifically for a woman’s foot.
