Puma’s ‘Tricks’ label has been applied to many outrageous football boots over the past eight years; from camo patterns, x-ray graphics, lava patterns and beyond – now they might be crossing the final threshold for football boot colours; deliberately odd colours.
More contrasted than mis-matched, though, the Puma Tricks football boots for the World Cup take two pop colours in the form of pink and blue, creating a highly-visible colourway on it’s own – even before switching the colours about.
Puma’s campaign since the launch of the evoPOWER has told players and fans to ‘Start Believing’, the the Puma Tricks range is the culmination of that belief.
These football boots represent the unshakable confidence that the players who wear have, now that they’re included in the World Cup squads and proud to represent their national teams.
The evoPOWER 1 Tricks has all the bells and whistles of the standard release, which you should be pretty familiar with by now.
A Gradual Stability Frame and one-way stretch ‘Adaplite’ upper mean the boot flexes and moves with the natural contours of the foot for a boot more powerful than any that have gone before.
Accufoam pads even out the muscles and bones on the top of the foot, for consistent striking and passing, and specially designed traction creates immovable stability.
One of the boots that is set to star at the tournament this summer, you can keep an eye out for the Puma Tricks evoPOWER 1 on the feet of Mario Balotelli, Marco Reus, Cesc Fabregas and Yaya Toure – all of whom will be competing for glory this summer.
The Puma Tricks evoSPEED 1.2 is similarly consistent in it’s technology. A SpeedCELL upper material offers a more leather-like touch on the ball, whilst packing the waterproofing and durability of a synthetic.
The GripTex 3D finish on the upper, however, goes make way for a star-shaped motif that adds a high-friction finish to the whole boot and compliments the ‘Start Believing’ message.
A refined soleplate boasts duoflex and speedtrac systems for a responsive forefoot and stable heel and midfoot – something enhanced by the internal everFIT cage.
Having kicked off last year in fine form, the evoSPEED has gone from strength to strength, scoring a number of high-profile goals on the feet of Sergio Aguero, Olivier Giroud, Adam Lallana and Radamel Falcao – who will be making a last-minuted bid for fitness ahead of the summer’s tournament.
Designed to light up pitches in Brazil this summer, fans will be able to catch a glimpse of them before they start boarding Rio-bound planes in the final key games of the season, with the FA Cup Final and Champions League Final fitting debuts for such eye-catching boots.
