Arsenal playmaker and Spanish international, Santi Cazorla, has signed up to be a PUMA player. We actually spotted him wearing some new boots in Arsenal’s win vs Fenerbahce last night, but the signing was officially announced this morning. He is going to be wearing the Puma evoSPEED 1.2 going forward, with the initial Black/Fluo Yellow being his initial colorway of choice.
It makes for another solid pick-up for PUMA, who now has Cazorla and fellow Arsenal attacking star, Olivier Giroud, on their books.
Combining several performance characteristics such as speed, agility and close control, Santi Cazorla is the perfect player to promote the PUMA evoSPEED product range. The Spaniard enjoyed a phenomenal first season at Arsenal, thrilling fans with an attacking style of play that led to him being voted the player of the season at the North London club.
Santi Cazorla said, “Signing this new partnership with PUMA is an exciting step for me. I like the people, their ideas for football and I am impressed with their product development. The evoSPEED boots I have chosen to wear are very light and give me a freedom and quickness of movement, which is very important for me to perform at my best. I am pleased the new season is underway and hope I can help my club and national team enjoy a successful year, and I am looking forward to working with PUMA.”

Cazorla had been an Adidas sponsored player and was wearing the adiPure range for the beginning of this season. Seeing as the evoSPEED is all about offering players increased acceleration and a faster tempo on the ball, it will be interesting to see how they impact or mesh with Cazorla’s performances.
