Puma Ultra Rugby Boots

Puma aims to appeal to speedsters with their latest offering Puma Ultra. Using materials that are both lightweight and durable, the Puma Ultra is designed to withstand the rigours of rugby while providing the boost needed for speed.

Key Points for Puma Ultra 1.1

The Puma Ultra features a new lightweight upper construction called ‘MATRYXEVO.’ The ‘MATRYXEVO’ combines polyester, aramid and carbon fibre yarns to form the one-piece knitted upper. If the use of several kinds of yarns sounds familiar, that is because Nike has already done it in Mercurial Vapor 13 and Superfly 7 which are constructed with Nike’s High Tenacity yarns weaved into a soft Flyknit base. With that said, it is expected that the MATRYXEVO will aim at providing a soft, pliable upper, a well-balanced structure, and a sock-like fit with motion-sensitive foot wrap, all at the same time.

Puma’s Grip Control coating is going to be present on boots for additional touch and control on the ball. The collar is V-shaped similar to that of the adidas Nemeziz 19.1. The Ultra replaces lacing perforations with loops instead similar to how it looks like in the topmost lacing of the Puma One 20.1, with the only thing in Ultra being that the loops seem to be the yarns themselves in the upper that are exposed for lacing purposes. A seam is visible, running around the collar (carrying the Ultra branding) up to the tongue area.

The 2.1 represents a cheap alternative to experiencing the new Puma Ultra. It has a lightweight MATRYXPRO upper that is composed of supportive polyester yarns, and has the same 'Speedunit' outsole from the 1.1 for quick acceleration. The yarns remain coated with the GripControl Pro. Lastly, the opening is now rounded and the tongue forms into a separate piece.
