No. 17 – Puma King Finale
Highlight: The modern version of the fabled Puma King series.
Since 1968, Puma has been perfecting the King series with the help of players like Eusebio, Pele, Johan Cruyff, Maradona, Lothar Mattheus and Didier Deschamps. That is one heck of a line-up! Realistically, I could have picked pretty much any of the Puma King releases through its history, but the current release takes everything they are about and adds an extremely modern package. The leather upper is the absolute highlight of this boot and you get that fantastic leather smell when you take them out of the box for the first time. I love the modern detailing and updated KING symbol, but there is one negative in the form of the flap tongue – although that is an easy thing to resolve with a pair of scissors!
