The PUMA AW16 Graphic Pack for evoSPEED and evoPOWER will be worn by Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud. The design features ancient tribe trophy skulls which represent the power, creativity and respect that the players demand on the pitch. Search #PlayLOUD for more information.
When footballers lead their team, they lead it with a tribal mentality. It’s done with passion and loyalty, and an ambition shared by their teammates. The way they carry themselves motivates and inspires. Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud are such leaders. They emerge from a remarkable summer filled with European play, and head into the club season with confidence and the force of their team at their sides—and new boots, made for them and worn by them alone.
The evoSPEED Graphic and evoPOWER Graphic are inspired by the trophy skulls of ancient tribes. These trophy skulls represented power, respect, and creativity, all of which are characteristics in modern day footballers. Each boot features its own take on the design theme. To highlight Griezmann’s speed and agility, his evoSPEED boot’s skull graphic features a glowing heat map to reflect key strike zones. Power is everything when you’re Giroud, and his strength and raw style of play are matched with an evoPOWER skull graphic featuring geometric armor.
With the evoSPEED Graphic and evoPOWER Graphic, Griezmann and Giroud are battle-ready and ready to inspire. Every match day is another chance to rule. Every touch brings them closer to whatever trophy is in reach.
BAM!! POW! PUMA LAUNCHES POP ART FOOTBALL BOOT
PUMA have launched the BAM!! POW! evoPOWER 1.2. Inspired by Pop Art the new boots will be worn by Cesc Fàbregas, Mario Balotelli, Olivier Giroud and Yaya Touré in tonights international friendlies and will certainly not go unnoticed!
PUMA has today introduced one of its most unusual football boots by revealing the new evoPOWER 1.2 colourway inspired by the Pop Art movement. True to the boot’s Power theme, the BAM!! and POW! prints express what the boot does to the game. The new evoPOWER 1.2 football boot with the Pop Art graphics will be worn by Cesc Fàbregas, Mario Balotelli, Olivier Giroud, Yaya Touré and many more players when the international friendly matches kick off later today.
Taking key characteristics from the Pop Art movement that had its roots in the 1950s, the boot features two-dimensional graphics with clear colours, black borders and no depth that look like a comic strip. This new design features PUMA Football’s seasonal colours orange clown fish, electric blue lemonade, and white with details in yellow. Dots are printed all over the heel and partially on the rest of the upper, with additional orange dots being applied to the white laces which gives an extra twist to this football boot.
Cesc Fàbregas commented on the new boots, “This time PUMA have really surprised me with the new boots they gave to me and I love the result. The graphics are so cool, and it actually feels like a little piece of art that I can wear on my feet. I look forward to wearing these boots when I play with the Spanish national team against England and Belgium, hopefully some players will be distracted when they see my unusual footwear.”
The evoPOWER 1.2 with all its innovative technologies is made for power and accuracy when kicking the ball. With the movement of a barefoot in mind, the boot is designed to provide maximum flexibility, which has an increased impact on the shooting power. The boot’s lightweight and super soft upper material stretches in a longitudinal not lateral direction allowing a freedom of movement while maintaining support. Accuracy is further improved with the GripTex print that runs across the full length of the upper, providing enhanced ball control in all weather conditions. Added precision is created through the lightweight AccuFoam lining that provides a clean kicking surface.
The new evoPOWER 1.2 with the Pop Art graphics is available for purchase on puma.com and at global football boot retailers from November 16.
