We all love a Puma collaboration! From Ferrari to Kehinde Wiley, Puma are notorious for their collaborative design work. For the brands latest creation, Puma have teamed up with Bob Marley's daughter and fashion designer Cedella Marley to mastermind a Jamaican themed Puma evoSPEED 1.
After putting her creative juices to use as the designer of the 2012 Olympic uniforms for the Jamaican team, Cedella - Bob's eldest daughter – has given Puma's new speed boot some reggae flavour! The result? One of the year's freshest football boot designs!
Staying true to Puma's DNA of sport-lifestyle, the Green/White/Black Puma evoSPEED 1 C.M football boots are inspired by the fastest country in the world - Jamaica. Taking inspiration from the vibrant colours and patterns of the Caribbean nation, the unique design characterizes the culture of the country.
The collaboration between Puma and Cedella Marley was announced earlier on in the year, when it was confirmed that the fashion designer would be responsible for the Puma Jamaican Track and Field team's Olympic, podium and ceremony wear for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Now she brings her Jamaican colours to the evoSPEED 1.
The evoSPEED 1 football boots continue PUMA’s successful speed theme and is part of a newly launched evoSPEED cross sport product offering. All these products incorporate technologies inspired by innovations used for the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt!
The Puma evoSPEED 1 is designed to help players achieve top speed and enhance manoeuvrability. The anatomically engineered lightweight one-piece outsole provides stability and support, utilising high-tech materials to minimize weight and to maximize its flexibility and reactivity.
They feature an external heel counter which secures an excellent heel fit, and the new PUMA evoAptoLast is a further development of the AptoLast fit , a successful carry-over from the v1 range. Internally, the boot offers support and fit from the EverFitCAGE, a webbed print application which acts to cradle the foot around the lacing system.
The whole evoSPEED collection takes performance technology and innovations and incorporates them in footwear and apparel developed for various sports categories. All evoSPEED footwear features lightweight materials, increased flexibility and an optimized fit that enables a greater freedom of movement without compromising support
