The German brand Puma are portraying their ‘power’ PWR-C 1.12 football boots as suitable not only for defence, but also for penalties and corner kicks.
Its main feature is the 3-D Power Shooting Technology Duo in the boot’s kicking area, which increases shot power (by not absorbing energy upon ball impact) and improves grip to the ball through its exposed elements made of an innovative thermoplastic material in two different degrees of hardness.
This Dark Shadow / White / Lime Punch colourway also employs soft kangaroo leather in the kicking area, together with a microfibre material for reduced weight in the lateral quarter.
A greater kicking area is provided for through slightly off-centred lacing, whereas the flexible outsole creates a snug fit and the TPU-injected heel counter is there for optimal stability.
As already worn by Carrick, this incarnation has also been spotted at the feet of Tomáš Rosický of Arsenal during the FA Cup tie against Aston Villa at the Emirates.
