With all the crazy adidas and Nike World Cup boot releases of late, some might have missed what is probably the cleanest World Cup sneaker collection released to date!
Puma has their own line-up in the Momentta Vulc Sala range, covering several qualified countries and the end results are pretty awesome. These futsal shoes offer a low profile, flexible soleplate, and each features unique, country-specific details highlighting celebrated moments in soccer history.
We managed to snag a pair in the Italy and Brazil colors to detail, needless to say I’m absolutely loving both pairs and what they have to offer.
Momentta Vulc Sala Italy
The Italian pair keeps thing simple, yet very clean. Based on the standard colors you would expect from an Italy release, the primary white canvas is personalized with some black and blue detailing. Added to that is the use of “Italia” in text on three separate regions of the boot. You get a large hit across the tongue in a retro style text, on the heel and also an shiny, embossed version along the side Puma formstrip.
The Momentta Vulc Sala by itself is a sturdy, well built boot with a positive reputation. Add some iconic Italian detailing and you get an inspired boot that is extremely classy. With Puma sponsoring the Italian kit, it goes well as a feature piece for those that want to associate themselves in true nature to the Azzurri.
Momentta Vulc Sala Brasil
Then there is the unmistakable Brazilian colors that feature a combo of colors you would fully expect to see on the host nations shoe. A green canvas take in some yellow and blue detailing that offers a very full-flavored samba feel, all centered on paying homage to the side that won the 1958 World Cup. That was the first one for Brazil, and on the tongue, Puma add some Spanish text that reads “os tres minutos mais grandiosos”, or as we would interpret it “three more minutes to magnificence”. The heel features “Brasil 1958” in positioned text, while embossed numerals “1958” is placed on the Puma formstrip.
Puma could have easily went with a yellow for the Brazil edition, but offering a green gives it much more pop and sets it apart from the direction of other brands. Gotta admit, I’m partial to this color considering it goes so well with my Irish jersey!
There are six different countries covered in the collection, you can see the entire line-up currently available at shop.puma.com.
