The King Finale is the most recent in Puma’s line of legendary soccer shoes, the King name is one that is admired by soccer fans all over the world, after being used historically by legends such as Pel?, Maradona and Eus?bio.
Introduced to pitches in the 60′s, the Puma King boot is amongst the few pieces of soccer equipment to genuinely reach ‘icon’ status, and as such, it’s latest version has been seriously considered by puma.
Inspired by Puma’s 1986 Mexico Finale shoe, the Puma King Finale is a magnificently crafted love letter to classic soccer shoes like the Mexico Finale, but also strives to condition players with all the technical knowledge and modernization that the latter-day game demands.
The top of the shoe is created with premium ultra-soft kangaroo leather which makes the boot more compliant than its predecessor the King XL, and the toe box is rounder for a better overall fit and feel. The King Finale has a traditional fold-over tongue that is kept down by a hook-and-loop fastener which provides a cleaner striking area and improves pressure distribution. The Finale also includes a new vamp toe area that gives players complete control over the football.
To give the Puma King a real appearance on the pitch Puma have contracted Everton’s elegant Spanish midfield maestro Mikel Arteta to be the key wearer for the cleats.
With a price-tag under ?100, the boot is destined to be a success in stores following it’s public release date. Even now the King Finale is drawing precious praise from fans and players alike, with soccer cleat experts Footy-Boots.com saying the new Puma is “a boot that does very little wrong”.
