Herzogenaurach, Germany (26 December 2015) – PUMA today launches the evoSPEED SL-S, the new super lightweight football boot with a synthetic upper that offers extra durability for everyday use. PUMA players Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Antoine Griezmann and Marco Verratti will wear the new evoSPEED SL-S in the vibrant safety yellow and atomic blue colourway.
The evoSPEED SL was introduced by PUMA last summer for match days, while the innovation with the evoSPEED SL-S is a new synthetic upper which makes the boot more durable enabling players to experience the ‘lighter than light’ feeling on match days and in training sessions.
The super lightweight boot construction of the evoSPEED SL is now combined with a new monolayer microfiber upper material, which results in extra speed and durability for the everyday player.
This new soft and durable synthetic upper material further provides comfort, stability and a better feeling of the ball. The flexible yet stable SPEEDTRACK spine in the outsole enables the player to perform quick turns, which is supported by the mixed stud configuration that improves players’ ability to react.
Sergio Agüero said: “These new boots are simply incredible. Players have different needs from their football boots, I like to wear the same boots in training that I wear in matches, which is just my personal preference. This new evoSPEED SL-S allows me to do that, which I am very happy about. To me, a light boot is very important, as it helps me to pick up maximum speed within few seconds or change direction easily, which is key to my style of play.”
today also launched the new colourway of the evoSPEED SL, which continues to be a key high performance product in the global sports brand’s football footwear offering. The new evoSPEED SL and evoSPEED SL-S will be in-store from 14 January 2016.
PUMA today also revealed the new Vent Thermo-R Jacket, which includes specific vent placements that adapt to movement patterns providing improved temperature control in colder, windier and wetter conditions.
