    So the PUMA evoPOWER 1.2 Camo - what do we think? First impression is awesome, and if you love the evoPOWER 1 there's definitely something to look forward to!

    Does anyone who currently owns the Evopower know that if they stretch / give out a bit ? Possibly using shoe trees etc..

    There's a pair which is half a size down from my usual size at a local outlet however it's pretty tight, but if they stretch a bit it should be fine.

    They definitely look great. I like that Puma has done more refinements rather than a drastic overhaul.

    I got mine in an 8.5 (true to size) which is what I wear in the hypervenom and legend 5. They soften up and give a little but they are not going to stretch much at all. If you have narrower feet you should be fine though.

    Guess I'll find out when we get them in. Puma told us we are getting 3 pairs.

    Yeap. I believe that's the take down model though.

    Its supposed to be some Evopower 1.2 "Accuracy", which is why the accufoam arrangement looks different from the standard evopower 1.2's.

    As a Liverpool fan, hopefully they will help Balotelli find some "accuracy".

    Just got in my EvoPower 1.2's this morning in the mail: not allowed to upload photos as per Puma's request, but boy... these are set to be easily one of 2015's top boots. They are downright simply amazing.

    I recently got the EvoPower and I really like them so far. I'm very excited for the 1.2 but I just wish they came with all rounded studs.

    Maybe the bladed ones makes them perform better, but I'm not really feeling as "safe" with blades.

    You guessed it: way better then the EvoPower 1! It has Accu-Foam all throughout the upper, not just the instep like the 1's. Heel feels a lot better, much more lockdown and grip in the lining. Oh and finally GripTex in the upper: without a doubt possibly best boot of 2015 imo.

    I was super excited about them when they showed us about 7 months ago when we were ordering them. Love the GripTex upper.

    Is the upper going to be the same as the evopower one but with added griptex and more accufoam?

    As I think the upper on the 1's was amazing, and one of the best synthetic uppers in a while

    I'm 100pct with you on that one. Have had them to test for a while now as well and they are really impressing me so far. Can't say too much about the tech as we've promised to keep our mouth shut, but you guys are in for a serious treat.

    More thoughts when the embargo has lifted ;)

    Don't like the look of the new Evopowers. The upper looks thinner and stiffer than the first-gen

    Yeah I have heard it is stiffer which would be a major disappointment ):

    It's stiffer than the first gen because the first gen was purposely designed to be soft!

    its thinner because more parts of it are covered by the Accufoam in a sense. I'm not sure I'd consider it stiffer to be honest, but again the Accufoam placement is abit of a game changer in that sense.

    Had it for weeks as well, love it, managed to snag the pair of the EvoPower Graphics (red with the dragon like thingie someone posted back) which look lovely.
