No. 18 – Puma V1.06
Highlight: The actual boot that set in place a shift to lightweight releases
There is no doubting the innovative nature of this release, as it set in place a market shift toward lightweight releases. At 6.8oz they were the lightest boots ever released when they debuted during World Cup 2006 in Germany. They featuring an integrated, covered lacing system on a thin microfiber upper that made them as easy boot to market toward speedy wingers and pacey forwards. Take for example Samuel Eto’o, who wore them while in his prime at Barcelona.
