Puma Ferrari Drift Cat 5 Ultra History
The Ferrari Drift Cat 5 Ultra is an iteration from the popular Drift Cat series, which in turn is the third evolution of that iconic racing shoe, the Speed Cat. The Speed Cat was released in 2001 and debuted on the feet of Jordan Formula 1 team driver Jean Alesi and his pit crew. It was in black suede with a Jordan yellow formstrip.
In 2004, Puma, in collaboration with Michael Schumacher, evolved the Speed Cat into the Future Cat. The Future Cat had asymmetrical lacing and a re-designed forefoot which gave the shoe both comfort and a snug fit. The midsole’s dual-density material dampened vibrations but helped maintain pedal feel. It also featured a leaping cat on the shoe’s forefoot and seven stars on the heel counter. The Future Cat came out in a number of hi- and low-top versions in 2005.
When Puma realized the potential of the shoe in the lifestyle sector, they released the Future Cat in a wide array of styles and colors. The continued popularity of the shoe led to the creation of the Drift Cat, a shoe geared for the street culture that made the Future Cat a favorite.
The Ferrari Drift Cat 5 Ultra keeps its motorsport racing history with this update of the classic Drift Cat. It has a synthetic upper with perforation details and a raised strip on both sides for texture and depth.

Fit & Sizing
