Puma have a history of teaming up with great artists to produce incredible items of sportswear. From the Africa Cup of Nations shirts earlier this year to the unforgettable Kehinde Wiley v1.10’s. Now, Puma’s latest cleats get the artistic treatment with the Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M.
A vibrant explosion of colours, the Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M completely changes the clinical, clean-looking colourways of the launch White/Red/Limoges, instead opting for Green Black and Orange.
With Puma having styled the evoSPEED 1 after Usain Bolt, it’s only fitting that they mark his return to the Olympic track with a football boot that celebrates his native country of Jamaica.
For ultimate authenticity, Puma have enlisted musician and designer Cedella Marley (daughter of Reggae legend Bob Marley) to design the upper and colourscheme of the new (hence the ‘C.M’ in Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M).
Cedella Marley has also had a hand in designing the uniforms for the Jamaican Olympic squad (who also sponsored by Puma), with the Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M‘s rounding off an astounding level of product for Puma over the next couple of months.
As for the rest of the boot, not a great deal has changed from the ‘vanilla’ evoSPEED 1 – Puma’s latest still boasts the Premium monolayer microfiber upper for a great, natural feel on the ball, EverFit cage construction for stability, groundbreaking new soleplate and a 181g weight.
Long-time Puma fans will know, this isn’t the first time the brand have turned to Jamaica to inspired their leading speed line, with the Swarovski-encrusted v1.10SL Lightning a real favourite amongst boot collectors.
Available from today, you can pick up a pair of the limited edition Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M for £179.99 from selected retailers.
