After two limited editions - one chromed dedicated to Antoine Griezmann and the other yellow and black -, PUMA finally unveiled the final version of one of the most anticipated boots of 2018: the Future 18.1 NetFit. The year of the World Cup is always an important moment for football brands, in particular for the soccer boots market and these boots could mark the definitive rapprochement of PUMA to the two giants Nike and adidas.

Going straight to the point, the greatest innovation of the boots is the Lacing System technology, called NETFIT, that allows players to adopt the position of the laces based on their own preferences, following the shape of the foot. On the upper made in evoKNIT, in fact, there’s a net - the honeycomb-shaped yellow structure - that allows putting the shoelace in the preferred position, being able to create solutions that improve the comfort of the show from footballer to a footballer. The PUMA Future also introduces a renewed sole, called RAPIDAGILITY, realized with a reactive and ultra-light material (Pebax) that, also thanks to the mixed conical and pointed studs structure, guarantees the best result in terms of grip and stability.

From an aesthetic point of view, PUMA opted for a disruptive "Fizzy Yellow" graphic execution, allowing the key technologies to shine in eccentric style. The details are black and red, the laces will be available in multiple colorway. We will see the boots on the ground starting from next weekend: Antoine Griezmann, Adam Lallana and Marco Reus will wear the boots.
