Smooth curves and lightweight performance, Puma’s evoSPEED 1.3 FG Rugby Boots unleash a devastating world of speed. Inspired by the shape of muscles, tendons and the smooth curves of a race car, the evoSPEED 1.3 has been created from a microfibre which is both soft and light so that it glides along. As a subtle yet performance enhancing addition, the inclusion of Puma GripTex adds a 3D pattern aimed at delivering extra grip during wet conditions. Not every feature of the evoSPEED 1.3 is immediately noticeable, as is the case of the EverFit cage. Strategically positioned in the midfoot, this delivers stability and optimal flexibility as you accelerate on the turn. While inside the boot and attention should also be paid to the soft tongue and heel which ensure comfort and protection from the moment you slip a pair onto your lucky feet. Looking at the sole and this has been designed with moulded conical studs spread across the forefoot and heel. Utilising Duoflex technology, increased manoeuvrability and ground penetration across firm natural surfaces was the original thinking behind this decision in what is now standard on top-end Puma evoSPEED models. When your game relies on speed then you need the looks to match and so a bright plasma shade certainly gets your play noticed while the peacoat and white tones soothe the overall design. This boot weighs 205g (UK 8).
