Puma has unveiled the latest iteration in their speed boot range, with the reveal of the Ultra 1.3. For the first time, the new model will be unisex, while there will also be a women-specific fit with a few different tech specs.
Both Ultra editions feature a re-engineered lightweight Matryxevo woven upper featuring technical Carbon yarns and transparent Mono yarns. The new upper combines with a brand new Speedcage to create multilayered support for rapid movement. The upper features cut-out transparent windows in the midfoot to further reduce weight making the Ultra 1.3 even lighter than the Ultra 1.2.
Interestingly, the unisex Puma Ultra 1.3 features the same chevron-like blades which featured on previous Ultra models, but the women-specific model features all-conical studs. Additional upgrades to the Ultra include a GripControl Pro skin that now coats the entire upper – providing a texture for decisive command over the ball and a lightweight PEBA SpeedUnit outsole.
The likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman, Sergio Agüero, Nikita Parris and Eugénie Le Sommer will all be wearing the Ultra 1.3 this season.
The Puma Ultra 1.3 Unisex and Women’s football boot edition will be available in SA from 29 July from Puma.com, Puma stores, Totalsports and selected retailers for R3,599.
