The one thing that Puma does really well is limited edition releases, and this time around they have teamed up with Ducati to create a speed on speed boot! It comes in the form of the evoSPEED 1 SL, a boot that weighs in at 6.4oz and is developed to suit players who aspire to have the ability to accelerate right through a 90minute game. But what makes this boot unique?
Well, it is simply that bad-ass Ducati’s rich racing, heritage design. It is a look that screams speed and ensures the mesh of both legendary companies makes complete sense. On the forefoot, Puma has placed the Ducati name, while the heel is home to their emblematic logo. Whether you are a fan of the look or not, you have to wonder why we don’t see even more limited edition releases like this – especially when it combines one of the world largest racing companies team up with one of the leading boot manufacturers. As reference, I do like this look!
Again, this is a LIMITED EDITION release as explained by its listed $275 price tag over on Soccer.com. I can guarantee this release will sell out pretty quickly, so my advice if you are interested in a pair is to get them ordered!

In terms of the actual boot itself – the evoSPEED SL – you are getting the following:
- A premium monolayer microfiber for an incredible, natural feel on the ball
- EverFit cage construction around the mid-foot provides additional internal stability
- Carbon fiber mid-foot stability and an external heel counter for added stability
- Combination conical and bladed stud configuration for optimal traction
And for those wondering, I have been slacking lately and have not yet reviewed the evoSPEED SL -but rest assured that I’m now working on it so you will have a review to reference for the high profile, lightweight release real soon.
In your opinion, does the Puma-Ducati combo work and would you wear a pair?
