The Puma King has always been known for it's extremely nice leather upper and in this regard nothing is new. We are talking about an incredibly soft calf leather, which Puma have tanned in order to provide the soft and supple feel that we know. The result is the top quality comfort that we know and expect from this boot.

Puma have, for their King boot, developed a last called ComfortLast. As the name implies, it's all about the comfort, and Puma have for a while had a wish to enable the King to fit a wider range of feet. The last has been made to follow the natural movements of the foot, resulting in a boot that does not compromise on comfort.
We all know that the royal need some protection. On the Puma King your will find and external heel counter, some thing that the Germans have decided on after close dialogue with some of the biggest stars. The heel cap provides increased stability and protection around the heel, and you are hereby protected against the kicks that may come in during a match. In addition, the upper part of the heel has been equipped with leather, again to increase the comfort as much as possible.
Under the boot you will find the Puma Pebax outsole, which combines low weight and great flexibility. Regarding the stud configuration, Puma have chosen a double solution, as it consists of both bladed and conical studs. The conical studs are placed on the medial side of the forefoot, which ensures a good manoeuvrability and pitch grip, specially when doing twists and turns in small areas.
With this new colourway, Puma brings in more class to an already iconic boot. The lifetime of this model speaks of it's qualities, and with some of the best engineers in the world, Puma have created a boot that is built to deliver across all facets of the game.
