PUMA evoSPEED 17 SL-S 'Derby Fever' | Marco Reus & Dortmund inspiration


Written by Mathias

The Das Revierderby, aka. das Ruhrderby, aka. one of the craziest atmospheres in the world of football. To celebrate their team, Dortmund, and build to the ‘Derby Fever’ collection, PUMA now introduce their latest evoSPEED SL-S.

I think that somewhere in the heart of every football fan, we all have a soft spot for Borussia Dortmund. I mean who hasn’t spent time watching goosebump-inducing YouTube videos of the infamous Yellow Wall? PUMA have now introduced the latest addition to their ‘Derby Fever’ Pack, which pays homage to the clubs fans and one of its most iconic players too: Marco Reus.

Continued below.

Unfortunately for Dortmund, PUMA and fans of football boots, Marco Reus is injured for the gazillionth time in his career and it is therefore very unlikely that he will wear these boots in action, when Schalke 04 and Dortmund play at the Veltins-arena this weekend. It’s the curse of the ‘Derby Fever’ boots and it means that despite there having been 5 boots made in the collection, they are still yet to play 90 minutes of football combined.

Marco Reus may not be available to play the game, but the new PUMA evoSPEED 17 SL-S ‘Derby Fever’ Reus is still designed in close collaboration with him. He is a lifelong fan of the club and that certainly shows on the boot design, which is filled to the brim with Dortmund-inspiration and little details that take this boot to a completely new level. On the performance front, the boots are based on the PUMA evoSPEED SL-S, which is the sturdier version of the evoSPEED SL that still weighs a mind-bogglingly low 146 gram. Mix it all together and you have one of the sleekest speed boots in the world right now.
