You may remember we looked back at the evoSPEED and evoPOWER a while back. The PUMA evoPOWER is the best football boot that I have ever had the fortune of playing in and so news of a new edition is something that excites me quite a lot.
The new evoPOWER 1.2 FG has a host of new innovations and of course improved technology, but what does that mean in simple English. Well quite simply, this is a better version of its predecessor with better power and better accuracy.
Cesc Fabregas, the leading assist maker in the English Premier League by some distance had this to say: “Accuracy is the basis of my game, it’s very important for a midfield player both when I pass and shoot. I love the improvements that have been made to the evoPOWER boot that have an increased focus on accuracy as well as power. Football can be won and lost in small margins, having a boot you believe will help you perform at your best gives you a confidence to perform at your best. I am very happy with what PUMA has done with this boot.”
The boots worn by Olivier Giroud, Mario Ballotelli and Yaya Toure, along with Cesc Fabregas will be in-store on 2 Feb 2015 and retail for R2 199. The range also includes shin pads, apparel, a ball and keeper gloves.
PUMA has also released its latest colourway of the evoSPEED 1.3 football boot, refreshing the line with a bright plasma, white and peacoat design. The evoSPEED 1.3 is a high performance football boot, featuring PUMA’s latest innovations that help players move with greater speed and agility. PUMA’s star players Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Marco Verratti, Antoine Griezmann and many others will wear the new colourway on-pitch from today.
Every feature of the evoSPEED 1.3 boot has been designed with speed in mind. To reduce weight, the upper is made from a super soft and ultrathin microfiber material. A flexible material composition improves players’ manoeuvrability and ability to react faster. The evoSPEED 1.3 boot will also ensure optimum ball contact and control thanks to PUMA’s GripTex technology on the boot upper, which helps enhances ball control in all weather conditions.
Borussia Dortmund Midfield Maestro Marco Reus said: “For my style of play I need a boot that allows me to move quickly on my feet and the evoSPEED 1.3 is perfect for that. It’s nice to have a good-looking boot as well, I think PUMA has done a great job with this colour. The past couple of months have not been ideal for me because of my injury, but now I’m looking forward to regaining my form and helping Dortmund climb the table.”
The boot will also be available in stores from 2 February for a retail price of R 2 199. Join the conversation on Twitter with @PUMASouthAfrica
