More than a year into its partnership with the ‘Captain America’ of American football, Puma has finally given Christian Pulisic his first-ever signature pair of football boots. The German brand designs the Puma Ultra with a white with red and blue colourway that clearly shows his pride as one of the few Americans to compete at the highest levels of club and international football. Moreover, it carries the hopes of Chelsea star to become a catalyst for the rise of the next generation of world-class players from his country, which would be a lasting legacy for his nation and the sport.
From afar, the stylised Formstrip with a trailing hazy graphic capped by a star displays a blazing effect, kind of representing how Pulisic blitzes past whoever comes his way. The same colour theme informs the larger CP collection, which the signature Ultra is part of. Another notable design is the inclusion of the brand-new CP monogram logo, something his die-hard fans would certainly appreciate. The CP Ultra and apparel kickstarts his project of opening small-sided football pitches across the United States to encourage grassroots participation.
