As we countdown to an exciting new boot release from Puma, SoccerBible opens our Boot Vault once again to showcase some classic football boots from seasons past...
This time it's the Puma King Pro Classic football boots, and our pair have been signed by one of the most decorated footballers of all time - Didier Deschamps. Deschamps was a long time Puma King wearer and in fact still wears the boots for coaching and training. In a long distinguished career Didier racked up winners medals for the World Cup '98 and Euro '00, not to mention 2 Champions League trophies, 2 French Ligue titles, 3 Serie A titles and an FA Cup!
The Puma King Pro Football Boot needs very little introduction, as the boot is a timeless classic made from ultra thin Pittards leather for supreme comfort, feel and durability.
A part of the Puma Pure collection, these boots are all about authenticity, professionalism and competitive edge. The Pure products combine classic style with advanced features to maintain the advantage on the pitch. The perfect combination of tradition and innovation.
This classic Puma King Pro is a super light boot which is both stunning in comfort and feel, designed around a sprint spike concept the boot is made for speed. Although of course since it's inception, speed football boots have moved on somewhat!
These classic Puma King football boots would have originally set you back around £70 GBP, but we wouldn't like to speculate what they could be picked up for today, especially with the signature of one of their most famous wearers! The King series remains a true footballers boot, and when we speak to many of the top pro's and ask them what boots they first wore, you'd be surprised how many say the Puma King.
Stay tuned to the SoccerBible as we reveal even more soccer cleats from the Boot Vault, showcasing the best retro, classic and once forgotten boots and bringing them back to life!
