During Euro 2016 it was rare to spot a player wearing black boots.
It seems as though all the biggest sportswear companies in the world are rolling out new boots with louder and flashier colours, and on the one hand it is understandable as they are far easier to spot on television from a marketing perspective, but what about the players who like to keep it simple?
Puma have an answer for that. If you're someone who likes their boots to be black and, but still want all the technology and comfort that a modern boot offers, then you are going to have to consider the Puma evoTOUCH, which was released this week and is absolutely beautiful.
As you can see above, Cesc Fabregas will be wearing them in the Premier League next season, but the main talking point is clearly the sock-like collar which has emerged as a new trend in football boot design.
This feature on the evoTOUCH means your feet will not move around in the boot, and it really is ridiculously comfortable. The boot is made of kangaroo leather which is very rare for a modern boot, and especially a lightweight boot, but it remains very light and gives a fantastic touch on the ball.
The boot is made from a super soft, ultra-thin and lightweight leather upper, bringing the foot closer to the ball and creating exceptional touch in all conditions. The integrated evoKNIT knitted sock gives a snug fit, and the anti-slip GripTex arrows inside the sock lock down the foot, prevent slipping and ensure stability for the foot. Touch and comfort combine with stability, created by the new outsole with a raised SPEEDTRACK spine.
PUMA on Monday launched the new evoTOUCH lightweight leather boot, offering unrivalled control and exceptional touch, designed for playmakers Cesc Fàbregas and Santi Cazorla. Grab your pair today at prodirectsoccer.com RRP £150 #PLAYLOUD
