Football boot release: PUMA evoSPEED 1.2

102833_01_Pair are this evening delighted to unveil the new PUMA evoSPEED 1.2 FG – the latest performance boot that helps players maximise their speed on the pitch!

For the first time ever, the boot features the PUMA brand name on the inner side of the boot instead of the formstripe – the brand’s iconic trademark.

This weekend, the new black and fluorescent yellow boot makes its on pitch debut with Sergio Agüero, Radamel Falcao, Olivier Giroud and many more PUMA players.

The new evoSPEED 1.2 FG is designed to enable players reach top speed quickly without sacrificing stability or comfort.


This is made possible through the use of light materials in combination with an internal midfoot support cage (EverFit cage) that maintains a good fit during all points of sprinting.


The outsole is reconfigured with smaller conical studs that give the player a better grip on the ground and enhances manoeuvrability on the pitch.


For optimal comfort, a minimised tongue and heel have been added, reducing pressure on the Achilles tendon whilst the sock liner distributes the foot’s pressure evenly.


Inspired by the shape of muscles, tendons and the smooth curves of a race car, the new boot features subtle black glossy graphics that round off the look of the more visible yellow prints.


Finishing touches are the transparent dotted print on the vamp for better grip in wet conditions, and small details in fluorescent blue that complement the striking look.

Sergio Agüero commented after testing the finished boot: “I am always excited to wear a new boot.  After the v1.11 and the first evoSPEED, this is the third SPEED boot that I have worn and it is definitely the best.


“PUMA’s boots are constantly improving and the innovations they create help me to perform better when I play.


“I appreciate the fact that they incorporate my feedback when they develop new boots and I am delighted with this latest result.”


As always, we’ll try our upmost to get our hands on a pair so we can put them through our usual rigorous playtest!

The new PUMA evoSPEED 1.2 FG football boots will be on pitch from today and available in-store globally from the 1st of June 2013. For more information, please visit
