Puma King XL
Stiff leather upper with the addition of a work boot style toe cap.
Who doesn’t love a good Puma King release? The King evokes a real heritage feel and are some of the most comfortable boots around. Yet this pair fell well short of expectations. The real problem is the forefoot design and that really rough lower lip. I am all for bringing back memories of boots of days gone by, but I don’t expect the leather upper to feel as stiff as a boot that has been sitting in the sun since the 1970s. There was a definite stiff feel about the design and they really offered a very unnatural touch on the ball. The color used on this release was also a little blaze.
