Wearing a pair of the Puma Future Ultimate Jack Grealish fearlessly takes the game to his defenders with his dribbling skills. The star midfielder is usually the source of creativity for his team and, as such, has been on the receiving end of stiff challenges more often than not. Grealish is one of the in-demand stars and more than impressed for England at Euro 2020.
Grealish is a stand out player on the pitch, for his style of play and is well regarded off it too, including giving away his boots to a fan after England’s Euro 2020 disappointment at Wembley. Another class act was his goal celebration against Iran in tribute to a boy named Finlay who has cerebral palsy.
With Manchester City beginning their UCL championship defense, Grealish switched to the dark teal Future from the Gear Up pack. He had become more and more important in headlining the Future given his involvement in European and Premier League football.
The Future Ultimate, which was predominantly white with pinkish red PWRTAPE, was the Future boots from the Breakthrough pack. Perhaps due to some wear and tear, Grealish’s Future Breakthrough was pictured later on as missing the PWRTAPE on the medial side.
A limited-edition pack deserved only star players to wear them. With Kingsley Coman manning the lightning-inspired Ultra Elements, Jack Grealish was tapped to represent the fire-based Elements Future. At that time, that flamey aura of this particular Future truly set Grealish apart from other Future players, who wore the yellowish-green Pursuit Future to end the season.
Entering the last few months of the 2022/23 season, Grealish switched to the player-wide release of the Future in the Pursuit Pack. It had that greenish Fast Yellow as the primary colour, accented by the PWRTAPES in peppermint. The shade brought some semblance to the Nike Phantom GT in the Euro 2021 Impluse pack.
Jack Grealish Signs with Puma in 2023!!!
Puma secures another high-profile name in Jack Grealish, who now officially signs with the Wild Cat brand and is now a headliner for the Future Ultimate. His first Puma Future boot is the ‘Blue Shimmer’ Future Ultimate from the Supercharge pack. With Grealish in the fold, the Future has another well-established footballer to represent it besides Neymar.
What did Grealish Wore Before?
Grealish and his co-GT stars all transitioned to the Phantom GX ahead of the Qatar World Cup quarterfinals, a bold timing for a new-gen boot release in relation to a major tournament. And as seen on his GT preference, the attacker opted for the low-cut GX, which did not have the Ghost Lacing system. With a probing player like Grealish, the boot had its snappy soleplate and versatile stud configuration put into good use. The knit upper made it a distinct option considering the Mercs were synthetic and the Tiempo leather.
Grealish did what he does best on the pitches of Qatar wearing the black with copper Phantom GT from the Nike Generation Pack. He was joined by some of the England stars in wearing Nike boots for the tournament, namely Harry Kane and Phil Foden. Seemingly encouraged to be fluid on the front, Grealish and fellow GT players gave credence to the boot’s connection to the creator role-giving as much as receiving opportunities to put the ball at the back of the net.
Grealish has always been a Nike Phantom player. He wore the Hypervenoms and, in Villa’s 2019 Premier League promotion, got famous for wearing a battered white Hypervenom IIIs, which he explained he feels were his luck boots. Before the GTs, the player preferred the VNM when the Phantoms were still dual-siloed.
Aside from the habit of sticking with his boots for as long as possible similar to Toni Kroos, wearing child-size shin pads and folding his socks low are the other practices of his that got attention. His preference for small size shin pads is all about maintaining optimal ball touch and control, while the rolling down of socks is due to having a successful season in his mid-teen years when he noticed his socks were shrinking. He thought of low socks as something lucky for him and has carried on with the practice ever since.
Because of his Irish descent, Grealish represented the Republic of Ireland in his under-21 years. He decided to represent England in international football in 2015, subsequently debuting for the senior squad against Denmark in 2020. During the Euro 2020 tournament, Grealish played mainly as an impact substitute, with the match against Germany one of his statement games where he assisted both goals for a 2-0 win.
