Aguero's new boots unveiled

2015-06-24 11:45

Cape 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 snug fit. 

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.
