The new Puma Alphacat golf shoes are designed to be the brand's most advanced spikeless model to date. Hannah Holden has all the details

Sporty golf shoes are all the rage and the new Puma Alphacat is looking to take that up a notch as the brand’s most advanced spikeless model to date, with high-tech materials designed to drive up performance. 

Puma Alphacat: First impressions

I love the styling and the contrasts of different colours and textures across the shoe, and I’ve roped in our trainer-enthusiast Alex Perry to give his thoughts.

“Puma released my favourite golf shoe of 2020 with the RS-G and they have always excelled when it comes to sporty-looking golf shoes,” he says.

“The Alphacat is no different.

“While the RS-G was much more in your face – in a good way – there is so much beauty in the simplicity of the Alphacat. I can’t wait to get them out on the course.”

I think he likes them. Right, so what about performance?

Puma Alphacat: The technology

Key technologies include a Proadapt multi-material outsole which delivers stability and traction on a variety of different surfaces. The outer section provides grip on soft surfaces, while the central rubber section grips best on harder surfaces, so you can have exceptional grip on all types of lie.

Comfort is a key driver in shoe purchases today, and Puma’s Adapt Foam provides under-foot cushioning providing impact resistance and energy return.

Finally the upper exo shell is made from an engendered mesh with a TPU film. This provides structure and support for the whole foot and makes the shoe waterproof.
