An old king is truly rising, with the super-light version of the boots worn in the past by greats like Maradona, Pelé and Eusébio expected next March in 2012.
Compared to the regular Kings, this version should do away with the iconic fold-over tongue (reducing weight), but it seems that much of the stitching and the studs will remain the same.
This stunning pair of white boots features a grey tongue and the Puma design mark along the sides, complemented by an array of orange details. The King’s crown logo on the tongue is in orange, together with the word King beneath the laces.
Along the side of the boots, the words King SL are in place, and around the lower edge of the boots (just above the soleplate) is a band in orange too.
Underneath the boots, the tips of the studs are in orange, as is the Puma cat logo . . . this also makes an appearance on the heel of each boot, in orange again.
