Puma evoSpeed SL football boot coming to SA on 10 JulyBy Staff Writer 24 June 2015 | Categories: news
"Light and fast have become lighter and faster." That's the official word from Puma on their new evoSpeed SL football boot. 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 distinct advantage, by enhancing speed and agility, according to the German sports manufacturer.
At launch, the evoSpeed will be available in lava blast, a bright red pantone exclusively created for Puma. Set to arrive at all Puma stores and select retailers within South Africa on 10 July, the evoSpeed SL boot will cost an estimated R2 800.
The majority of the radical weight reduction was achieved through using a super light, almost translucent textile upper material. While a Puma Speedframe maintains the necessary stability for players, while also keeping the boots gross weight ultra low. Furthermore, for support is a minimalistic heel counter, which provides the foot with a snug fit.
On the footplate, traction studs support the player’s forward acceleration and enable better ground penetration, according to Puma. This is also said to improve players' ability to change direction and make quick turns thanks to its five conical studs placed in the forefront and medial back end of the boot. The outsole also features a raised Puma Speedtrack spine to further support torsion when dribbling passed opponents.
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.”
