Arsenal’s Spanish schemer Santi Cazorla will wear Puma’s evoSPEED football boots this season after signing a long-term deal with the manufacturer.
Cazorla has been sponsored by Adidas since making the move to Arsenal last summer, but will now join Gunners teammates Olivier Giroud and Mikel Arteta in sporting Puma products.
The playmaker believes that Puma are the right fit for him at this stage of his career, with the decision to choose evoSPEED boots made to help maximise his ability to make quick decisions on the pitch.
After announcing the move to Puma this afternoon, Cazorla said: “Signing this new partnership with PUMA is an exciting step for me. I like the people, their ideas for football and I am impressed with their product development.
“The evoSPEED boots I have chosen to wear are very light and give me a freedom and quickness of movement, which is very important for me to perform at my best.
"I am pleased the new season is underway and hope I can help my club and national team enjoy a successful year, and I am looking forward to working with PUMA."
Arsenal fans will become very familiar with Puma next season, after the Gunners agreed a kit deal with German company which is believed to worth around £30m per year.
The 28-year-old wore Puma boots for the first time last night, as he helped Arsenal secure Champions League qualification with a 2-0 win over Fenerbahce at the Emirates.
