Aguero’s latest colorway is about as mixed up as Man City’s Frontline!
Puma has mixed some older designs to come up with a new and extremely vibrant version of the Puma evoSPEED 1. The official colorway is listed as a pretty long winded Jasmine Green/White/Monaco Blue/Fluo Yellow and it is a look that I feel sums up the range.
We actually spotted these first last week when Sergio Aguero unexpectedly wore them in European action. Puma hadn’t given us much warning, so initially we were surprised to see such a design. One thing became clear from first spot, the combo of Green and Blue creates an extremely unusual look that we really haven’t seen before.
So, what is the Puma evoSPEED 1 all about?
Weighing in at 6.3oz, the evoSpeed 1 is all about speed and acceleration, The upper is made of a thin monolayer microfiber upper that features a dot-pattern along the forefoot for added control benefits, while stability is provided by the internal EverFit cage. The anatomically engineered lightweight one-piece outsole provides stability and support, utilizing high-tech materials to minimize weight and to maximize its flexibility and reactivity.
One area of real interest is the soleplate and stud configuration. Puma has removed all carbon fiber materials and gone for a TPU outsole instead. Mixed with a completely different stud configuration to that of the V series, it makes for interesting results – especially with the pink tips on this version!
Different Uppers – Leather vs Synthetic
Puma offer two different offers to suit different player styles. I am personally a fan of the K-leather version, especially because of the level of touch you get on the ball. For those who want a more lightweight option, the Monolayer Microfiber upper is designed to be durable and it is ultimately much easier to clean. The Microfiber upper is also a one piece, so there is no stitching right through. Again, preference on the upper will simply vary by player taste!
