Last year PUMA Golf gave us the ProAdapt Delta and ProAdapt Spectra and both lines quickly became favorites on the THP Forum for their great styling and extreme comfort. Today we have a fresh drop with the PUMA ProAdapt AlphaCat and they are being touted as the “Alpha” of all spikeless golf shoes.
Diving into what makes the PUMA ProAdapt AlphaCat unique starts with their proprietary ADAPT Foam. A combination of EVA Cushioning and an impact resistant polymer provides not only extreme comfort, but also resistance to impact. The outsole features a multi-material design that uses an abrasion resistant TPU for stability and the central crystal rubber unit provides traction and soft feel under the foot on hard surfaces. What this means in layman’s terms if that you will get stability and grip on the turf, all while having a softer feel on your feet. Something that in the past has been a bit elusive.
Is it waterproof? The upper is an EXO Shell made up of a mesh that features a TPU film. This is design to offer some structural shoe support, as well as be waterproof. PUMA Golf is offering a 1-year guarantee on it.
“The new PROADAPT ALPHACAT delivers the energy and innovation we are about here at PUMA,” said Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, PUMA Golf. “More golfers than ever are wearing spikeless shoes, so when creating this shoe, our engineers and designers utilized both performance innovations and style trends to create the most advanced, stylish spikeless golf shoe PUMA has made to date. At the end of the day, the PROADAPT ALPHACAT gives golfers a shoe that they can perform in, feel confident in and look great in.”
For men the PUMA ProAdapt AlphaCat is available in sizes 7-14 in four different color options. Women have sizes 5.5-12 available and three colors to choose from. Two versions are available for men as well, one featuring your standard laces and the other their PUMA Golf DISC system (which works extremely well). Cost is $150. On the ladies side, it is standard laces only and the cost comes in at $120.
