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.
Comfort and stability are also front of mind with the evoSPEED 1.3. The external midfoot cage wraps around the outside of the boot enhancing stability, and a new optimised footbed helps give a snug fit to increase comfort.
PUMA player and Manchester City star striker Sergio Aguero said; “I am a really big fan of the evoSPEED boot and I really like this new colourway. It will definitely stand out. I’ve been working hard over this past month to regain fitness and I am very happy to be playing again. We have some big games coming up in the next few weeks, it is an important stage of the season and I’m very keen to score some more goals to help my team.”
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 new bright plasma, white and peacoat colourway of the evoSPEED 1.3 is available in-store from 2 February 2015 and will retail for R2199. A full collection of training apparel, goalkeeper gloves and other accessories will also be available.
