Puma V1.10 SL Review

A special thanks to our good friends at Puma for sending us a pair of their new Puma V1.10 SL cleats for review in the Parachute Purple/Tender Shoots colorway. Right out of the box they look like a very classy shoe with a little bit of flair to it, but fairly subtle colors in comparison to other speed boots released as of late.

The first thing we should go over is the sizing. If purchasing this boot online I highly recommend buying a full size larger than you would normally (I am normally size 9 US and a size 10 US was snug on my foot). Also, if you have a wide foot, like myself, than I would consider another boot because these run very thin. As for breaking them in, I have never worn a pair of boots so comfortable right out of the box and into a hard training session. Not a single blister, hotspot, or uncomfortable rubbing – which shocked me because, first of all, most speed boots are notorious for wreaking havoc on heels if not broken in thoroughly enough, and secondly, for a boot that was rather tight on my wide feet, it seemed to accommodate them very well.

Puma has accomplished something in these boots that are difficult to describe. They have created an incredibly light boot that is comfortable, and also has a very good touch and feel to it on your foot. It is made of a softer synthetic upper than that of the synthetic Adidas Adizero which is made of a more rigid and thinner feeling material. The upper almost feels a bit thicker to the adizero, which I liked because it feels like a perfect hybrid of a speed and a classic boot.

Puma have designed these boots with only one thing in mind: speed. They have accomplished this above and beyond all expectations. However this does not mean that you will have no more or less power or swerve when you strike the ball, because those factors will all be determined on how your foot makes contact with the ball. I am personally not a fan of all of the gimmicky components to many modern soccer boots which claim to add power or accuracy to your shots, and am happy with the excellent ball feel that the V1.10 SL provide due to the thin, synthetic upper.

The studs provide excellent grip on hard to firm ground conditions. However I would not recommend the FG version of these boots for soft ground or muddy conditions as they do not provide adequate grip then. So if you play in soft/muddy conditions I would recommend that you try out the Puma V1.10 in SG, as it is made of similar materials and is also a top of the line speed boot from Puma. My only qualm with the Puma V1.10 SL is that it is built very thinly, and is suited for players with medium to thin width feet.

All in all, Puma have created their lightest boot ever, and one of the lightest (and possibly the most comfortable) speed boots ever created. All of this for a cheap price in comparison to what many elite level speed boots on the market cost at this time. I highly recommend these cleats!

    Hey Calvin I know you said that these are not the best boots if you have a wide foot but you did say that they accomidated them very well. So my question is if i were to get these for my wide foot would i have serious issues or would I just have to break them in and let them mold to my foot. Also does the upper material resemble that feel of a high quality leather.

    They have a very thin last/footbed, but they were not uncomfortable. The material is very similar to old vapor materials the vapor III, it is a soft synthetic material, its thin, yet soft and has almost a slightly cushioned feel. They mold to your foot instantaneously pretty much, and are comfortable, if you have a really wide foot then these may not be the best fit per se, but would still not be extremely uncomfortable. Impressive that you knew it was my review without any posting names. Props!

    I need help with size because I want to buy them online. I have never worn pumas, but I am size 9.5 us in adidas and nike. It means I would have to wear size 10.5 us?

    You said you normally wear size 9, this is also for nike and adidas? or are you a different size in other brands?
    just want to make sure Im making the right choice in size.

    thanks for your help.

    Thank you so much Calvin for the Info. Also I guess it was a very Lucky Guess. HAHA Lol. Also I have a question about another Puma Boot.Would the power cat be a Better option for a wider foot. I have recently seen the Tokyo addition and seriously thinking between Puma v1.10 SL, Power Cat Tokyo and AdiZero Leather. I know how the adiZero’s fit but would like to know how the Power Cats fit. Thanks again and keep up the good work. :)

    Santiago –

    A 10.5 for these cleats would be perfect if you’re a 9.5 in Adidas and Nike. Just remember that you should only go up one size with these specific cleats, not all Puma cleats!

    Jose –

    A Powercat would definitely be a better option for wider feet. These or the Adizeros could work as well, but they’re slightly more narrow.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Hey I wear a 9 in V1.10 (not the SL just the normal ones) I think that a 9.25 would be perfect if possible. My foot hasn’t grown since what size should I get?

  7. Andy May 15, 2011 at 4:34 pm #

    Trent, that’s a tough question. I would probably go with the 10s, just to be safe. It’s a close call though. Keep us updated!
