Puma Ultra 1.3 Faster Forward Pulisic Edition

Pulisic's custom Puma Ultra 1.3 to celebrate him joining Puma is based on the Faster Football edition released some weeks ago.

Customized for Pulisic, they come with 'PULISIC' on the forefoot, using the font of the PUMA logo for the first two letters of their name. There is also a "torn" pattern showing the flag of the United States. The US flag is also found on the heel of the shoe.

“Christian’s journey has been incredible and has really paved the way for so many young American players who dream of playing in Europe for the world’s biggest clubs,” said Johan Adamsson, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sports Licensing at PUMA. “Christian is technically gifted, has lightning speed and quickness of thought to change any game. Not only have we signed an amazing talent, but a fantastic person off the pitch who wants to continue to grow soccer in America, a goal PUMA has committed to support.”

“Anyone who loves soccer, should be able to play,” said Pulisic. “We have a platform in sports and if something is truly meaningful, you can really help to open people’s eyes and make changes. What I love about PUMA is they share my passion and my goal to support youth soccer in America and to help the next generation to chase their dreams.”
