PUMA evoPOWER Vigor 1 | Big deal in a Green Gecko colourway


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

PUMA kicked off 2017 with a CAMO’ed up version of their forthcoming evoPOWER Vigor 1 generation update. They are now ready to fully unveil the first colourway and introduce the new modifications on the boot.

I can honestly say with complete and utter surety that the PUMA evoPOWER Vigor 1 is the greatest power football boot on the market. It reigns absolutely supreme and no other brand has dared make a modern football boot that can challenge it on the power and precision parameters. And even if they did, the strides the product engineers have made throughout the last few years puts the PUMA evoPOWER Vigor 1 leagues ahead of what others could probably achieve anyway.

We have been lucky enough to try on the evoPOWER Vigor 1 in action and as you can probably already tell, we are seriously impressed. It may come as a bit of a surprise, because this new 2017 generation looks so radically different from the evoPOWER 1.3 from 2016, but the concept is still the same. More elements have been added, but the boots still give you that barefoot strike thanks to the one-way stretch Adaplite material.

The AdapLite upper is made to only stretch lengthwise, so when you flex the foot, you can utilise the full range of your foot’s natural movement. We have all tried kicking a football barefoot and experienced how much harder you can strike it, this is what the upper material allows you to do. Big deal!

While that aspect of the boot remains the same, the new PUMA evoPOWER Vigor 1 has been updated with a new slip-in elastane construction. This sock-like fit means getting into the boots is a bit of a squeeze sometimes, but once you are in; "OHH MY GAWD!!" Not only does it improve the all-important fit, it also further enhances that barefoot feeling, so the evoPOWER now feels even more true to its concept and way of achieving a more forceful strike.

Lastly the AccuFoam lining has been modified to suit both the new construction and to make it more effective. Instead of being a flat lining around the entire boot upper, the AccuFoam is now implemented on the boot as a series of 3D dots. Like on the evoPOWER 1.3, the technology smoothes out your natural unevenness on the evoPOWER Vigor 1 and that gives you more precision.

All in all, this boot is a pretty significant leap forward for PUMA and with a fresh colourway like this Green Gecko, there is no telling how popular this evoPOWER could prove to be…
