PUMA attacking boots are made of leather and cushioning. They have a lace-up and have a studded, firm grip for the ball. The brand name PUMA is supposed to stand for the "Power, Uplifting, Manliness" of the man wearing the boots.

In this case, the way the brand name is supposed to be taken to heart by the person in question is to be extremely comfortable, and also very stable and firm when trying to take a ball on the foot. The brand wants its customers to buy aggressive stylish soccer shoes that are comfy and stable.

The boots, carved out from evoPower 1.3 Tricks FG, have an Oblong TPU frame and a TPU element at the inner of the foot. The studs are studs made out of TPU.

Looking at the actual boot, there is a deep and firm grip over the ball, being smooth and firm but not too rough at the same time. The studs also provide a firm grip but is not as firm as the sole of the boots.

It is a minimalistic boot without any extra gimmicks, though that isn't necessarily bad. The boots are in a job, and they do the work of a soccer shoe.

But, on the bright side, the Oblong TPU frame of the shoes is very noticeable, as it has its own form and style which makes it stand out from other soccer shoes.

While the boots have a good grip to hold the ball and perform their job as expected of a soccer shoes, there is no extra style or extra comfort. This means that the shoes are not as valuable as they should be, due to the lack of durability and comfort.
