For years now, Puma has been lagging behind adidas and Nike when it comes to the overall piece of the sporting goods equipment and supply marketplace – but they have always been beloved by superstar footballers and kids playing in a dirt playground somewhere alike.
Puma footballs are always well regarded, mostly because this is a company that is very (VERY) serious about reducing high quality products that give as they are athletes every edge and advantage when it comes time to play on the pitch.
Even though adidas stole the thunder with their new crazy paneled World Cup football that was put on full display in 2014, Puma has been responsible for some pretty cool innovations as well.
Not only are they taking full advantage of high quality synthetics that form the backbone of the construction materials used within each and every one of their footballs, but they are also trying to figure out a new panel approach and construction configuration that creates a ridiculously aerodynamic ball that is infinitely controllable without sacrificing any consistency as far as performance is concerned.
They have an entire research and development team working double-overtime to test out and experiment all kinds of seemingly crazy theories, but many of them have paid off and found their way into production footballs that you can buy at the store or online.
The one thing that you can count Puma to do above all else is to produce footballs (and other football equipment) that pushes the sport just a bit further into the future than almost any other company out there.
Understanding for well that they are lagging behind adidas and Nike (as mentioned above), they are always looking for the “next big thing” that they can bring to their athletes – helping them enjoy the sports (especially football) that they are so very passionate about!
You just can’t go wrong with a Puma football!
