No. 7 – Puma King Pele Santos
Year Released: 1968
When you have a boot worn by the best player in the world, it automatically holds a name for itself. This was what Pele had on his feet when he won his 3rd World Cup with Brazil in 1970. The King range only made its playing debut in 1968, so this was a relatively new boot. Yet the iconic look and responsive leather featured through the boot create an air of nostalgia and we can imagine there is a team of players who would love to get their hands on a pair to challenge a team of adidas Copa Mundial wearers. Not quite a boot that tops the list in terms of performance, but a definite “I want a pair” selection.
