No. 2 – Puma evoSPEED SL Ducati
Released: October 2012
Availability: Limited – but plenty were made available.
This is a boot that sits as one of my favorite all-time performers, as Puma got the balance between speed and control just right. Well, that is for a wingers specifications anyway! The boot looked super classy in a badass, true to form, Ducati Red. Weighing in at 6.4oz, they allowed players a unique opportunity to own a superlightweight Puma release with an iconic, not to be replicated look. As you would expect, this release didn’t sell out anywhere near as fast as most of the Adidas/Nike boots featured on this list, but they certainly left an impression on the players that had the opportunity to test them.
Nice post. I think RVP's boots are the best because they are unique to him only and you can't even find that anywhere. It is not like they were made for a special occasion, he wears them all the time.
By the way, have anyone noticed Brandon Marshal from the Chicago bears wearing hyper venom during the Thursday night game? Maybe you guys can write a post about NFL players wearing soccer shoes. I know mostly will be kickers and punters but it might nice to know who wears soccer cleats.
I agree, I have seen more Nike id and great colorways on display from NFL kickers and punters, than I have seen all year from professional soccer.
