It has been a particularly exciting Friday at SoccerBible HQ as we've got our hands on the Puma v1.815 Ferrari boots! We're sure SoccerBible fans are eager to see more of this exciting collectors boot, so here's an updated low-down on these awesome boots, with plenty of new photos for you to check out!
First of all, the boots come in a hefty, but luxourious, black boot box which is split into two compartments. The lid lifts open to reveal the boots sitting in a moulded casing in the base and a special Ferrari booklet in the lid. The first thing that is apparant about these boots is just how incredibly light they are! We've held and played with the Nike Superfly and it is no comparision, the v1.815 Ferrari's are effortlessly light. The upper, on closer inspection, feels like a hybrid between the original v1.06 and the current v1.08, and is a superb deep racing red.
Every little detail on this boot exudes premium and quality. Gold stitching runs around the tongue, under the toe area and inside the boot as the gold Puma stripes and Big Cat provide the contrast and racing car feel. The off centre lacing means there is a large clean strike area - if you're bold enough to kick a ball with these beauties!
The boots also come supplied with a historic Ferrari booklet, packed full of heritage and iconic imagery from decades of motorsport. It is fair to say that a lot of attention and thought has gone into these boots, and it shows with level of detail and craft of this end product.
