PUMA evoPOWER boot – Vigor 1

PUMA Reveal Latest Generation evoPOWER boot – Vigor 1

 

PUMA has kicked the new year off in style by unveiling its next generation POWER boot, the evoPOWER Vigor 1. The new football boot sees PUMA’s greatest design overhaul yet in the POWER franchise, boasting an upgraded silhouette that keeps power and accuracy at the heart of the design. The revolutionary boot will be worn on-pitch by PUMA POWER stars including the likes of Olivier Giroud and Mario Balotelli, and new PUMA ambassadors, Petr Čech and Marc Bartra.

 

 

Engineered with numerous upgrades to the previous edition, the evoPOWER Vigor 1 is more technical than ever, marking a new era for the silo. The Vigor 1 is the first in the POWER family to feature a stretchable Spandex sock construction, creating an ultra-comfortable slip on boot with a barefoot feeling. The Spandex sock lining works in harmony with PUMA’s next generation AccuFoam upper technology which features a new engineered 3D format. The PU foam dots regulate the uneven surface when the foot comes into contact with the ball, which maximises precision when striking the ball powerfully. The upper is completed with PUMA’s Adap-Lite material further enhanced with a new support cage that allows the foot to bend. The one-way stretchable microfibre upper material supports the biomechanics of the foot while striking the ball barefoot, maximizing both power and precision. This combined with GripTex, a PUMA technology applied to the upper of the boot, helps create enhanced grip and ball control.

 

 

The evoPOWER Vigor 1 outsole remains the same as its predecessors as a result of popular demand, featuring a mix of bladed and conical studs. Based on PUMA’s research into how force travels on the stance and kicking legs, the boot features bladed studs that ensure perfect ground penetration and stability, especially on stance leg, and conical studs for optimal agility.

 

The evoPOWER Vigor 1 emanates POWER with its bold styling and colour, featuring a sleek new look in allover Gecko Green finished off with Safety Yellow and PUMA Black detailing. The diamond shaped PU dots in Safety Yellow on the sock liner not only advance the performance of the boot, but also fashion a subtle graphic pattern across the upper, which has been replicated in the outsole. The overall look is rounded off with finishing touches in PUMA Black, from the iconic PUMA Formstripe and evoPOWER branding on the tongue to decorative details on the outsole.

 

Commenting on the new latest POWER offering, PUMA’s General Manager for Teamsport, Matthias Mecking said; “In order to tackle the design, we closely examined our top players in action. We examined the way Olivier Giroud transfers every bit of power into strikes and Balotelli’s final third domination and powerful goals. We examined what the body naturally brings to the ball and how we can give it more impact and even better aim, and took each boot material to the next level. The evoPOWER VIGOR 1 is PUMA’s most technical offering to date, and brings you even closer to the ball for even greater power.”

 

PUMA star striker and POWER player, Olivier Giroud added; “I’ve been wearing evoPOWER for some time now and while PUMA always makes great developments to the boot, the new evoPOWER Vigor 1 is next level. I’m enjoying playing in a boot with a slip on sock construction – it is ridiculously comfortable plus the foam dots are a total gamechanger for me. I enjoy making an impact on the pitch and in these bold Green boots I definitely will. Let’s just say the bar has been officially raised.”

 

 

The new evoPOWER Vigor 1 is now available for purchase on www.puma.com, PUMA Stores and football boot retailers worldwide.

PUMA Unveil Next Era of Duality Boots | evoPOWER and evoSPEED

PUMA Launched the new H2H Duality evoSPEED Football Boots in Orange and Blue_2

 

PUMA Unveil Next Era of Duality Boots | evoPOWER and evoSPEED.

 

PUMA today launched the latest iteration of its eye-catching Duality boots, continuing the theme of two distinct coloured boots in one pair, which PUMA were the first to introduce.

The Head To Head Duality colourway is applied to PUMA’s two football boot families, evoPOWER and evoSPEED. A selection of high profile players will wear one orange and one blue boot in up to three competitive club matches, representing either team evoSPEED or evoPOWER, which PUMA is now pitching against each other for a special competition.

PUMA is challenging the players of each boot family to go ‘Head To Head’ and outperform the other. A scoring system counts in game action such as goals, assists and completed passes of all the participating footballers, to determine which team is more successful. Cesc Fàbregas, Mario Balotelli and Olivier Giroud are three members of the wider evoPOWER team which will compete against stars such as Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus and Antoine Griezmann of the evoSPEED crew.

 

 

Sergio Agüero, star striker of Manchester City FC and captain of the PUMA evoSPEED team said about the challenge, “There is no way we will lose against the evoPOWER team. Our team includes sensational players such as Falcao, Reus, Verratti and many more. And me of course. (Laughs) Seriously speaking, I will try my best and hope I will score some goals for my team.”

Cesc Fàbregas, leader of the evoPOWER team commented, “evoPOWER players use the boot to help their accurate and powerful style of play, and we hope to live up to this reputation. Maybe we won’t score the most goals, but I am sure that with players like Yaya Touré, we will gain many points through completed passes and some beautiful assists. I am up for the challenge!”

 

The new Head To Head Duality boots further enforce PUMA’s ownership of the two-differently-coloured-boots concept, which was first introduced for the World Cup in 2014, and further established through a special edition Arsenal FC boot, and various personal player executions at the end of 2014 and earlier this year.

 

Selected retailers have the Head To Head Duality colourway available from now for both evoSPEED and evoPOWER.
