Over the weekend the eagerly awaited Yellow-Purple colourway of PUMA’s v1.11 soccer boots made their debut as Steven Pienaar captained South Africa in the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge.
Continuing with the PUMA Speed theme, the v1.11 boot incorporates premium lightweight technologies that enable all kinds of movements while supporting the player’s speed to the maximum. The v1.11 is the third generation football boot that uses the special UNI technology, where the upper material is stitched rather than glued to the sole, providing the perfect fit by perfectly replicating the unique PUMA Aptolast.
The v1.11 also features a super-soft premium lightweight microfiber upper material and the central lacing, which is underneath the lace cover making the boot suitable for various footshapes, and the lace cover is held down by an elastic strap and a TriHook fastener to ensure a snug fit that provides a smooth kicking area and a unique look. A carbon fiber composite in the forefoot helps provide optimal pressure distribution, reactivity and flexibility.
The boots will be worn by a glittering array of world stars including Samuel Eto’o, Yaya Touré, Radamel Falcao, Mikel Arteta and Lucas Barrios along with a full product range that includes gloves, tees, shorts and training wear, the new yellow and purple v1.11 hits stores (including the World Soccer Shop PUMA store) in December, so be sure to look out for it!
