Science and technology are instrumental components of innovations in sports performance, and PUMA just kicked it up a notch with the introduction of its latest soccer boot, the evoPOWER.
After rigorous study and analysis of barefoot kicking, PUMA researchers concluded that "a bare foot generates a more powerful kick than a booted foot through non-restricted flexibility. However, players experience a loss of control and accuracy over the ball due to the natural contours of the foot."
In other words, increased flexibility equals more power. But a shaped boot provides greater accuracy. All soccer players know they cannot sacrifice one for the other.
Introducing PUMA evoPOWER, the most liberating soccer boot on the planet, featuring these attributes:
Stability. An EverFIT External Cage optimizes midfoot stability.
Flexibility. Pebax Outsole and Gradual Stability Frame technology reduce the weight of the boot and provide optimal flexibility.
Power. PUMA's AdapLite one-way stretchable upper allows the foot to bend two ways, so you can generate more power in your kicks.
Accuracy. AccuFoam inserts provide a clean kicking surface for increased precision.
Recently signed PUMA footballer Thierry Henry says of the evoPOWER, "I hadn't really seen a boot like it before. What PUMA says about it is true, the flexibility helps create a better contact with the ball and generate really good shooting power."
