After blowing us away with the all-new evoSPEED silo last month, Puma have upped the ante with this sleek Puma evoSPEED 1 – Black / White / Team Orange colourway.
Revealed just in time for Holland’s first game in Euro 2012, the new evoSPEED 1 – Black / White / Team Orange looks a completely different beast to it’s White / Red / Limoges sibling, especially with the K-Leather version we’re showcasing here.
Weighing in a 192g / 6.8oz, the evoSPEED 1 K joins the likes of the Mizuno Morelia Neo, Titan Leather Pelé Sports Trinity and the adiPure SL as a boot that offers the lightweight technology speed-freaks demand, whilst giving that all-important K-Leather touch on the ball.
Whilst much of the technical whizz-bangery that makes the synthetic Puma evoSPEED so special is absent on the K-Leather version (like the EverFit cage) all the souped-up features that make the soleplate so special are all present and correct.
Built on Puma’s exceptional AptoLast system for superior anatomical shaping right out the box, the evoSPEED revolutionises the forefoot with the new DUOFlex construction.
Gone is the carbon fibre of the old v1-series, and in comes the DUOFlex; formed out of high-strength TPU, the one-piece outsole is injection-moulded with special channels to help move with the muscles in the foot, for fast changes of direction and a natural level of flexion.
We think the leather version of Puma’s new Speed cleats looks exceptional, and we’re likely to see many of the Big Cat’s top players considering this model over the synthetic.
Additionally, the Puma evoSPEED 1 – Black / White / Team Orange is easily one of the best we’ve seen on a Puma boot recently – so there’s plenty to get excited about!
Available now, expect to pay £150 / $200 US for the K-Leather version and and £140 / $190 US for the synthetic.
