What Shoes Does Usain Bolt Wear?

One of the greatest athletes of our time, Jamaican born Usain Bolt first caught the world’s collective attention when he competed, and completely dominated, at the 2008 Beijing World Championships.

He had, before then, competed on the international level, as featured earlier that year at the New York City Diamond League.

Ever since, the eccentric and amazing individual that is bolt, has kept the world transfixed with his flared style and colorful spikes.

For as long as he has been competing on a professional level, Usain Bolt has been sponsored by Puma, a German sportswear company, and has since then stuck through with the brand, even going ahead and becoming the brand’s official ambassador at a 4 million per year pay. His signature shoe, Bolt EvoSpeed is considered one of the highest selling athletic spikes to date.

Bolt has however been known to compete in state of the art custom made spikes the likes of which most athletes might shy away from due to their “flavour”. They have though been partially credited to his accelerated sprint and speed. Who knows? He might just be The Flash…
