Puma is making a statement this summer’s World Cup. The brand unveiled the dual color Tricks colorways for the evoPower and evoSpeed colorways in Germany on Wednesday. With a blue left cleat and a pink right cleat this is by far the most unusual colorway that we have seen heading to Brazil.
Puma are well aware of the unorthodox nature of the colorway and have said that it is meant to reflect the unshakeable confidence of their top players and their ‘potential to do the unbelievable’.
Mario Balotelli, Cesc Fàbregas, Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Olivier Giroud, Gianluigi Buffon, Yaya Touré will all be wearing the new look.
“Like all Spanish players I am so excited to go to the World Cup in Brazil and these boots will make a statement,” Spanish midfielder and current World Champion Cesc Fàbregas said. “I’ve played in evoPOWER since January and it is such a good boot. We believe we can go far in the tournament, and I like that these colorful boots will accompany me on our journey.”
Speaking about the rather unusual pair of boots that he is set to wear, Italy striker Mario Balotelli said he initially couldn’t believe what he was seeing: “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 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.”
Sergio Aguero, who will go to the World Cup on a high after winning the Premier League with Manchester City was equally amused: “I am always happy to stand out on the pitch – usually I try to do so by scoring a goal, but why not play safe and wear an unusual pair of football boots? Jokes aside, I love my evoSPEED boots in these crazy colours and I cannot wait to go to Brazil, I really believe this will be a big moment for me.”
While the Tricks will primarily be showcased in Brasil this summer, the boots will first be on show during two big Cup finals. First the FA Cup Final, where Arsenal’s Puma contingent of Giroud, Cazorla, Rosicky and Sagna will be bringing a splash of colour to the Wembley pitch and then in the Champions League final on the feet of Gabi and Godin.
And Puma 100% behind this new look. S365 was in London shortly after the launch visiting clubs and noticed Puma’s split personality at their brand shop.
