We love these cleats, and without further ado, here’s our review of the Puma Powercat cleats!

I’m sure you’ve all heard the buzz about the new Concave cleats. There has been a ton of hype surrounding them since the announcement that Concave was introducing their cleats to the US. Previous to this announcement, they were only available in the UK and in Canada.
