PUMA King Lothar Matthäus Premium

They say a players career is only fully appreciated when he stops playing, when his trophy cabinet is complete and when we reflect on what was. PUMA have given belated but deserved recognition to Germany legend Lothar Matthäus in the form of a limited edition King model.

For those who don't know, strap yourself in for a blast of footballing education: In a 20 year career, Lothar Matthäus was without doubt one of the best box-­to-­box midfielders in the world, he made 25 World Cup appearances in 5 different tournaments, winning the big prize in 1990. Better than our footballing CV headlined by our Monday Night 5-a-side runners up trophy of the famous 2007 season, but that's a story for another day. This is one about Matthäus and PUMA.

Some description

To commemorate Matthäus' career PUMA created 25 pairs of limited edition premium King boots calling out the German internationals monumental achievements. A majestic k-leather upper is met with several unique details including gold limited edition numbering, luxurious leather lining and a golden tongue calling out his World Cup honours. Fit for a king.

The only down side? Each pair of these Matthäus King boots were gifted to PUMA partners.
