- The Future lineup has set a whole new standard for custom fit with the introduction of its Netfit system. Even its low-tier variations including the Future 18.4 Soft Ground is no exception to such standard. Designed with simple yet beneficial features, this soccer cleat is ready to take on the soft ground arena with quality performance.
- The Puma Future 18.4 is fitted with a synthetic upper that offers a soft yet structured sensation. It is engineered to mimic the texture of the Netfit technology found in its high-end versions such as the Puma Future 18.1 FG. The diamond-shaped texture serves as an aesthetic element while aiding in ball touch.
- A trademark to the Future series, the sock extension brings an anatomical fit through its one-wrap tongue and ankle collar. The sock-like collar protects the cleat from debris especially from wet, muddy grounds while the tongue creates a hugging sensation that enhances lockdown. To personalize the fit further, a traditional lacing system is installed in the midfoot.
- To provide enough responsiveness and flex on soft grounds, a TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) material is used for the construction of the soleplate. It is installed with conical screw-in studs that deliver excellent grip on slightly wet to muddy natural surfaces.
The Puma Future 18.4 Soft Ground is available in standard sizes for men ranging from 6 to 13. The sock extension is meant to offer a soft wrap-around sensation while the synthetic construction gives more structure to the overall fit. The central lace-up closure allows players to personalize the fit.
The base of this soccer cleat is made from a TPU material that caters to a responsive ride. The lightweight material allows for more agile movements on challenging muddy pitches. To better dig into the soft natural ground, six conical screw-in studs are installed on the outsole. They are strategically arranged to lessen stud pressure while maintaining excellent traction on soft ground surfaces.
The synthetic upper of the Puma Future 18.4 Soft Ground is styled with diamond-shaped texturing that resembles the Netfit technology. Although it does not serve as lace holes, it brings benefit to the shoe by enhancing ball touch. The heel area of the soccer cleat, on the other hand, is designed with a leather-like finish that carries the Puma branding.
The sock extension allows for a supportive fit that players need on slippery muddy grounds. It extends to the ankle area as a mid-height collar while the midfoot part flows through as a one-wrap tongue. The traditional lacing system brings more custom fit to the already snug wrap of the sock extension.
