Axel Witsel wore the low-cut version of the Puma One football boots, called the Puma One 1 CC Leather. The cleats are the same as the usual Puma One football boots just with a traditional non-collar low-cut design.

It is by far not the first time that Puma signed a player Dortmund just signed. The German brand and Adidas' arch rivals also gave former Barca defender Batra (previously Nike - now plays for Betis) and various other players a boot contract.
