Puma has been making big leaps forwards in the footballing department in the last couple of years. A part of this has been the excellent Puma Ultra. It has become the current “people’s speed boot” because of its welcoming fit and it has also come in a variety of cool colourways. With the upcoming “Spectra” colourway, Puma looks to continue the trend of launching eye-catching design that will surely be enjoyed by their fans.
With this Puma Ultra Spectra, the Big Cat has given the boot a mostly white base interspersed with nice multi-colour knit – helping the boot stand out on the pitch. Another feature that helps the Spectra pack’s good looks is the chrome finish on the forefoot of the soleplate. However, I think it’s a shame that the finish doesn’t extend to the heel region but it’s still a good looking soleplate nonetheless.
The only drawback with that soleplate is that it looks like it’s a wearable finish which means the glossy finish will peel and wear off after extended usage on the football pitch. Outside of this, the colours combine well for a good look. The deep red logos and wording pop beautifully against the white base and coloured knit – a great choice by Puma.
I think Puma made a smart decision by not spamming the knit with too many colours and the Puma Ultra’s current construction with how the threads are spread out does give the effect a nice balance while still enabling the white base to shine.
Hopefully, the Puma Ultra in the Spectra colourway will get a lot of on pitch support. The boot will probably look excellent in blurred photos and great on feet.
