Town - Light and
fast have become lighter and faster with the introduction of PUMA’s innovative football
boot, the evoSPEED SL.
Weighing in at 103 grams per boot, the evoSPEED SL is PUMA’s
lightest match boot to date and is designed to give the likes of Sergio Agüero,
Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Marco Verratti and Antoine Griezmann a new game
advantage, by enhancing speed and agility. The launch colour is lava blast, a
bright red pantone exclusively created for PUMA.
Sergio Agüero said: “I am still amazed at how light
these boots actually are. When the box with the boots was delivered to my house
a few weeks ago, I thought the box was empty. This boot is a real step forward
and PUMA has done a really impressive job creating it.”

The majority of the radical weight reduction was
achieved through using a super light, almost translucent textile upper
material. While maintaining the necessary stability, the low weight PUMA SPEEDFRAME
adds to the overall lightweight theme of the evoSPEED SL. Further essential support
is given through a minimalistic heel counter, which provides the foot with a
Traction studs support the players’ forward
acceleration and enable better ground penetration. Change of direction and quick turns
are radically improved thanks to five conical studs placed in the fore front
and medial back end of the boot. The
outsole features the raised PUMA SPEEDTRACK spine that further supports torsion
when dribbling passed opponents.
Marco Reus commented: “This new boot is a real change
to what we have been wearing before, it actually looks and feels like a totally
new product. They are so light, you can almost not feel them and still they
give me exactly that support I need from a boot. This is a whole new direction
of boot design.”
Retailing for R2 799 the evoSPEED SL will be available
for purchase from 10 July at selected retailers and PUMA stores.
