Fit & Sizing
The Puma men’s Ferrari Future Cat Ultra sneaker comes exclusively in guys’ sizes that range from 7 to 13. Ladies who wish to cop a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their normal shoe size. While it generally fits accordingly, this sneaker tends to run narrow than standard measurements hence users have recommended going a full size to two sizes up.
The shoe utilizes an asymmetrical lacing system which provides a snug fit.
Apart from its lineage’s signature details such as asymmetrical laces, Puma Formstrip logos, and a sleek silhouette, this shoe’s perforation detailing throughout its upper is what sets it apart from its siblings. This upgrade provides a more breathable and lightweight fit compared to previous models.
Puma Ferrari Future Cat Ultra History
The Puma Ferrari Future Cat Ultra is one of the models spawned by the original Future Cat shoe, which in turn is the third generation of the first Puma motorsport shoe called the Speed Cat. The Speed Cat was introduced in 2001 and was first seen on the feet of Jordan Formula 1 team driver Jean Alesi and his pit crew. This particular shoe was painted in black suede with yellow Formstrip.
Three years later in 2004, Puma collaborated with famous German racing driver Michael Schumacher and together developed the Speed Cat into the Future Cat. With an asymmetrical lacing system and an altered forefoot design, the Future Cat provided enhanced comfort and snug fit. This shoe also featured dual-density materials in its midsole that restrains the shaking motion while driving without compromising pedal feel. Design details such as seven stars and a leaping cat provide branding and stylish accents to the shoe.
After a year, the Future Cat was released in a few low- and high-top iterations, and when Puma saw its potential in the lifestyle footwear section, the brand introduced it in a multitude of colors and styles. One of them is the men's Puma Ferrari Future Cat Ultra shoe, which is crafted with a leather upper and displays perforation details throughout for enhanced durability and an embossed Formstrip for branding and aesthetic purposes.
