Jack Grealish, Christian Pulisic and the rest of Puma stars get to wear new colours for their respective silos this January 2024 as Puma launch the Phenomenal Pack. But especially with those wearing Neymar’s preferred boots, Phenomenal Pack is a bit special as it is the first wide-release of the new-gen Future 7 Ultimate. The Puma Future has gone a long way since its Netfit days, and has continued to attract big names in football. The Ultra and King Ultimates are there to provide good company to the latest chapter of the Future, and all in all the boots in this collection serve as a boost to their players to stay phenomenal on the pitch…
Phenomenal Future 7 is mostly white, but the sprinkles of pink and aqua accents on the upper are noticeable. From afar, the warping accents on the upper provide a motion blur effect, a surefire way of showing off some style when you start huffing and puffing. Nonetheless, the Wildcats and the FTR outline stick out clearly because of their black detailing.
Things get reverse-mirrored when it comes to the Phenomenal Ultra. The upper is dominated by that shade of pink seen in the Future, with white providing the solid fill of the black-outlined lateral Formstrip (the medial one remains an outline). White also gets behind the PWRTAPE structure, in effect producing a white flame visual on the forefoot of the boot.
Standing out on its own, the Phenomenal King significantly deviates from the major themes and opts instead for a splash of yellow. It’s a kind of yellow shade that is bold and lively, almost bordering neonish. The boot still has the Phenomenal Pack connection courtesy of the thematic pink details on the edge of the tongue and collar, the 3D, curved attachments on the counter and the stud tips and midfoot stiffener line on the soleplate.
