Next-Gen Puma evoSPEED SL II Tricks Euro 2016 Boots Released
Following the differently colored boots concept put to eye-catching use by Puma at the 2014 World Cup, the next-gen Puma evoSPEED SL II Euro 2016 cleats introduce an even more striking look: the right boot is yellow, while the left boot is pink. Weighting in at a mere 107 gram, the cutting-edge Puma evoSPEED SL II boots were officially unveiled on April 20, 2016.
Designed to stand out on the pitch, the extremely bold Puma evoSPEED SL II Tricks football boots are set to be worn at Euro 2016 by the likes of Antoine Griezmann (France) and Marco Reus (Germany). Argentina's Sergio Agüero will be amongst the high-profile players representing the Puma evoSPEED SL II Tricks at Copa America Centenario in the United States.

The new Puma evoSPEED SL II cleats introduce one of the boldest football boot designs ever to guarantee maximum on-pitch visibility. While the right shoe of the new Puma evoSPEED SL II Tricks is colored in garish yellow, and the left shoe is pink, both colors fade towards black for the rear half. The Puma and evoSPEED brandings are not only large in size, they really pop thanks to being painted in the same colors as the boots themselves, just applied to the respective other shoe.
"A special shoe for special moments"
Tech-wise, the second-generation Puma evoSPEED SL II boots follow on their much-ridiculed predecessors. And just like the first generation, the new Puma evoSPEED SL 2 boots will only last for a very limited amount of match time. Or as Puma puts it, the Puma evoSPEED SL II is "a special shoe for special moments". Fortunately for Puma enthusiasts with a limited budget, there is also a Puma evoSPEED 1.5 football boot with the same design, but without the extreme construction.
Overall, the technical specifications of the new Puma evoSPEED SL II are similar to those of the first generation. The Nylon sole plate, for one, is the same. It combines bladed and conical studs while featuring an unusual alignment with just three, triangularly aligned cleats at the back.
Although it's again a lightweight, ultra-thin textile material that's used for the upper of the new Puma evoSPEED SL II, the underlying support structure has seen the biggest changes compared to the first-ever Puma evoSPEED SL. It now has a different structure, especially in the forefoot part of the Puma evoSPEED SL 2.
Available from April 21, 2016, the striking Puma evoSPEED SL II football boots should retail at a similar price as the first generation: 240 USD (230 Euro, 160 GBP).
