You may have noticed that all the players at the launch of the kits for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations were wearing a new v1.11 colourway – a nicely bright yellow and purple combination no less.
So Sport-locker.net felt that it was only right that we brought you further imagery and info on the speedsters!
Over the weekend, PUMA speed players including Samuel Eto’o, Yaya Touré, Radamel Falcao, Lucas Barrios, Stéphane Mbia and Emmanuel Eboué were all set to wear the new cleats – it would be hard not to notice if they didn’t!
And we’re positive that you’ll be seeing a lot more of these in the Premier League.
As for the v1.11 boot itself, it incorporates premium lightweight technologies that enable all kinds of movements while supporting the player’s speed to the maximum. Along with a full product range that includes gloves, tees, shorts and training wear, the new yellow and purple v1.11 hits stores in December.
The v1.11 is the third generation football boot that uses the special UNI technology, where the upper material is stitched rather than glued to the sole, providing the perfect fit by perfectly replicating the unique PUMA Aptolast.
The v1.11 also features a super soft premium lightweight microfiber upper material. The central lacing which is underneath the lace cover makes the boot suitable for various footshapes, and the lace cover is held down by an elastic strap and a TriHook fastener to ensure a snug fit that provides a smooth kicking area and a unique look.
A carbon fiber composite in the forefoot helps provide optimal pressure distribution, reactivity and flexibility.
In addition, the new v1.1 boot enables greater playing stability, through an external heel counter and a Pebax frame that provides support to the outsole. The midfoot area is reinforced with a TPU composite which secures further stability and helps to avoid midfoot bending.
This increased stability also enables an optimal traction as well as manoeuvrability, provided through the pointed stud configuration featured on this new boot.
In addition to the new v1.11 football boot, PUMA is also introducing a wide range of speed apparel and equipment products. These products have all been designed in the bright yellow and purple colour tone, including gloves, tees, shorts and ball. The new v1.11 performance collection will hit stores worldwide in December 2011.
