They say that first impressions are very important, well when we first received these new Puma King football boots our first impression was that they looked class! The colour combination of chocolate brown and cindre blue really looks good, and fits the Italian style these boots represent.
When you think of Puma King football boots it conjures up images of footballing legends such as Pele, Maradona, Eusebio and Cruyff, and these latest football boots fully do the King justice.
The brown leather of the special edition Puma King XL Italia football boots is a full grain super-soft material. The soft leather upper has been a feature of Puma King football boots since the 1960s, because Puma know that when it comes to performance a good touch and feel for the ball is very important, and despite a host of modern materials on the market a good quality leather is reliable.
To maintain performance throughout the course of a game, the Puma King football boots offer a comfortable insole which has padding and stability around the heel area. Puma have designed a boot last which should mold itself to the shape of the player's foot over time, to ensure the foot and the boot move as one.
The Puma King XL Italia football boots are a special edition boot, released in conjunction with the Italian national team and the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa, which includes the worlds best national teams including Italy, Spain and Brazil. These boots are expected to retail at around £120 GBP as they are available on a limited release.
