PUMA have laid their World Cup cards on the table with the launch of the new Tricks collection, a colourful interpretation of the evoPOWER and evoSPEED where the right boot is pink and the left boot is blue.

PUMA are partial to the odd trick up their sleeve when it comes to unique designs and this time it's quite literal with their World Cup boot line up. The Tricks collection will be worn by PUMA players at the World Cup in Brazil including Mario Balotelli, Cesc Fàbregas, Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Olivier Giroud, Gianluigi Buffon, Yaya Touré and many more including Adam Lallana flying the PUMA flag for England.

The battle to stand out on pitch this summer is sure to be a fierce one as the PUMA Tricks odd boot look goes head to head with adidas' unique Battle Pack and Nike's brand new Flyknit innovations. The World Cup is the ultimate stage for designers and brands to show off their work and PUMA are making quite the statement with their Tricks range.

Mario Balotelli seems pretty happy with them; “I have to be honest, the first time I saw the Tricks boots, I thought the PUMA guy was mad. But when I realised he wasn't, I was already excited. The evoPOWER looks cool in these special colours it is definitely unique. And in the end, it is exactly the reason why I chose to be with PUMA, they dare to be different and everyone knows that I do as well.”

The PUMA Tricks football boots collection will appear on pitch before the World Cup with Arsenal players Sagna, Rosicky, Giroud, Cazorla and Arteta all set to lace up in them for the FA Cup Final. They'll also be on show in the Champions League Final via Atletico Madrid duo Godin and Gabi and in the Europa League Final when Carrico's Sevilla face Cardozo's Benfica.
