  • The Puma One 17.1 features a high-quality calfskin leather upper that offers an excellent touch and feel on the ball.
  • This soccer cleat also has the EvoKnit collar, an elasticated and perforated material that provides a sock-like fit around the ankle. This mid top sock is also seen in other Puma cleats such as the Puma Future 18.1 Netfit FG/AG.
  • The lightweight Pebax sole plate on the bottom of the Puma One 17.1 is flexible and responsive. It is designed to reduce drag on firm, natural grass.
  • The stud configuration with its mix of bladed and conical studs is built for quick turns and acceleration.

The Puma One 17.1 is available in sizes 7 to 14 in men’s version only. This soccer cleat fits true to size. Straight out of the box comfort is offered by the premium leather upper. The fit can be customized through a lacing system positioned in the middle.

The lightweight Pebax outsole of the Puma One 17.1 offers enhanced traction on natural grass making it suitable for agile players. The reinforcement in the midfoot also provides increased responsiveness resulting in faster take-off times.

The stud configuration is a mix of conical and bladed studs. The conical studs provide increased traction and maneuverability, while the bladed studs offer support in the toe and heel areas. The reversed “V” stud pattern in the center forefoot provides more control and braking ability.  

The upper of the Puma One 17.1 uses a high-quality calfskin leather that provides a comfortable fit and feel straight out of the box. It sits skin-tight around the foot and gives the optimum control on the ball.

This soccer shoe also features the GripTex technology that provides an additional grip on the ball, especially in wet conditions.

The elasticated EvoKnit material runs through the middle of the soccer cleat where the tongue should be and also makes up the mid-cut collar. It offers a snug fit around the ankle to keep it locked in all throughout the game.

The central lacing system is pretty straightforward. However, there are three nylon lace loops, two on the lateral side and one on the medial side, which act as reinforcement elements. These straps are attached to the base of the sole plate to keep the foot locked in when you pull the laces tight.

The EvoKnit material also acts as the soccer cleat’s internal lining. Aside from creating a comfortable environment for the shoe, it also decreased the shoe’s overall weight.

The heel area of the Puma One 17.1 is made of a textured, synthetic material. The plastic heel counter is fully internal. The heel liner grips the sock nicely to prevent heel slippage.
