After a skyrocketing last 12 months on the market Puma have updated the evoSPEED with the new Puma evoSPEED 1.2.
Inspired by both the organic and mechanical, the Puma evoSPEED 1.2' looks like pure simplicity on the surface,' mimicking' the curved lines of a Formula 1 car, but the rest of the boot is interwoven curves and clever design – mirroring muscle shape and form.
The big design ‘story’ on the evoSPEED 1.2' is that the iconic Puma FormStripe has been ' ' replaced on the instep by the Puma name for the first time in Puma’s football boot history.
Creating a huge branding call out on that part of the boot is a bold statement from Puma, leaving no doubt as to whose boots a player is wearing when in action on the pitch.
Set to debut this weekend, the new black and fluorescent yellow boot makes its on pitch debut with Sergio AgÄ‚Ä˝ero, Radamel Falcao, Olivier Giroud and many more Puma speedsters.
A revamp of the looks is something Puma were obviously keen on with the evoSPEED 1.2, which boasts a gorgeous matte black finish, with glossy black detailing alongside the bold, statement fluo yellow and blue fade.
But it’s more than just an external polish up for Puma’s signature speed football boots. The Puma evoSPEED 1.2 is also more technically tuned than ever to deliver maximum acceleration without compromising on traction and comfort.
The microfibre synthetic is now thinner and lighter than ever for featherweight feel on the ball – and the GripTex 3D transparent printing allows for additional grip and control when the weather turns bad.
Inside the evoSPEED 1.2, Puma have kitted out their newest football boot with a next-generation EverFit cage for lateral stability and comfort, which works alongside the lacing system to lock the midfoot in place
The outsole is reconfigured with smaller conical studs that give the player a better grip on the ground and enhances manoeuvrability on the pitch.
A SpeedTrack chassis now runs from the heel counter to the forefoot studs, again to keep the boot stable and protective, without adding too much to the gram count.
For optimal comfort, a minimised tongue and heel have been added, reducing pressure on the Achilles tendon whilst the sock liner distributes the foot's pressure evenly.
Ĺ›I am always excited to wear a new boot. After the v1.11 and the first evoSPEED, this is the third SPEED boot that I have worn and it is definitely the best.
PUMA's boots are constantly improving and the innovations they create help me to perform better when I play. I appreciate the fact that they incorporate my feedback when they develop new boots and I am delighted with this latest result.ĹĄ
-' Sergio AgÄ‚Ä˝ero commented after testing the finished boot,
The new Puma evoSPEED 1.2' football boots will be on pitch from today and available in-store globally from the 1st of June 2013.
