Fresh off the World Cup, Puma has unleashed their latest innovative speed boot to the market – the evoSPEED 1.3. This third generation release focuses on the continued evolution in speed and energy on the pitch, with a new emphasis on agility to give players a greater competitive edge. Compared to the evoSPEED 1.2, this version features a new upper, an optimized soleplate and a redesigned support system that take it to a new level.
Last week, we were introduced to a new Red/White version of the evoSPEED 1.3 along with the Arsenal kit release event, but the official release colorway (as pictured) comes in a popping Purple/Yellow colorway and is set to be worn on pitch by PUMA’s top football talent including Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Antoine Griezmann.
As always with the PUMA Speed silo, every detail of the new boot was designed with velocity in mind. Maintaining the use of lightweight materials, the new boot is extra light and flexible, which provides enhanced manoeuvrability and makes it the perfect choice for quick strikers and midfielders. The new upper with its super thin microfiber finishing offers additional grip, control and touch for the ball.
One further innovation of the new evoSPEED 1.3 is the redesigned support system with its external midfoot cage that enables stability for quick turns and kicks. This visibly new system alongside a new optimised footbed offer a snug fit for the player, so the boot strikes a perfect balance between speed and comfort. Finally, the boot features a redesigned eye-catching PUMA wording on the lateral side, which finishes up the great look of this new boot.
Along with the release, Manchester City Striker Sergio Agüero said
Agility is very important to me, getting to a ball quicker and being able to beat a defender puts me in positions on the pitch where I can score more goals. And I love scoring goals. The new evoSPEED 1.3 feels like a good improvement, the new upper is great. I like that it gives a little more grip on the ball, and it definitely helps me when I am heading towards the goal trying to leave the opponents behind.
We are still waiting an official release date for this specific colorway in the US, but the very exclusive Red/White evoSPEED 1.3 is currently available at soccer.com.
