A great boot for the price! Solid construction, great support, soft leather is very comfortable and easy to break in, and beautiful to look at! Before I bought my first pair of these boots in June 2013, I was wearing the Nike Tiempo and had a lot of problems with those. I found them to be very heavy and snug and I constantly had blisters. The Powercat is so wonderfully light and I only had blisters for about a week when I initially started wearing them. After that they fit like a glove. I have been wearing these since Summer of 2013 (putting them on up to six times a week, sometimes even on gravel when I forget my runners) and they are still going strong. They are best suited for turf (hence the "FG" which means "firm ground") however, I use them on grass about once a week and they are great as long as the pitch is not soup. I would not recommend using any leather boot on gravel since it will deteriorate the material really fast. I absolutely love these boots and am certain I will be wearing them for life!
I would recommend this product to all football players, especially those who have wider feet as Puma's tend to run a bit wide.
PS - Don't believe the hype that a fancy boot will make you a better footballer. Messi is not as good as he is because he wears top of the line Adidas. He's that good because he has commitment, drive, focus, and most importantly a supreme love of the game. He is constantly pushing himself to the best he can be, and that is something you cannot buy in a pair of boots. Just find what works best for you and remember that the love and respect of the game surpasses anything else.
