5 February 2015
The newest evolution of the evoPOWER range is again inspired by the power generated from a barefoot strike with the super soft upper stretching lengthways but not across which allow freedom of movement for the foot without sacrificing support.
The Gradual Stability Frame outsole technology bends with the foot to help generate increased power through the kinetic motion when shooting.
The GripTex print running across the full length of the upper enhances grip on the ball in all conditions to deliver increased control and accuracy. This combines with the lightweight AccuFoam lining which, along with the upper material, provides a consistently clean ball striking surface increasing passing and shooting accuracy with all areas of the foot.
The players were certainly impressed.
Cesc Fàbregas said: “Accuracy is the basis of my game. It’s very important for a midfield player both when I pass and shoot. I love the improvements that have been made to the evoPOWER boots that have anincreased focus on accuracy as well as power. Football can be won and lost in small margins and having a boot that you believe will help you perform at your best gives you the confidence to perform at your best. I am very happy with what Puma has done with this boot!”
Mario Balotelli added: “The new evoPOWER boots are really impressive. I’ve been testing them for a few a while in training and PUMA has made an already very good boot even better. I can feel the power evoPOWER gives me when I shoot, that’s very important for a striker of course. I’m looking forward to wearing this new boot on pitch.”
In Singapore the boots are on sale now at Puma and Weston retail outlets.
