When it comes to piecing together a classic with all the modern upgrades needed for the current game, Puma has just unleashed a pretty tempting package. Introducing the absolutely devilish Puma King SL Classico. Intended to celebrate Puma’s rich heritage and 65 years of soccer history, this special edition release is a remake of the groundbreaking King SL launched in 2001.
This is not a boot that Puma has skimped on, with a K-leather upper providing a classic premium touch and comfort from first wear. Being that they are an SL (Super Lightweight) release, you would expect the overall package to be designed for speed. And they are, coming in at a very minimal 6.2oz. Given that they feature a K-Leather upper, this is an impressive weight point.
Perfection Re-Perfected: a lightweight boot inspired by its classic predecessor.
You have to love the extra classic cross stitching across the forefoot of the boot and the addition of gold detailing throughout gives them that rich, majisterial appearance. And then there is that fold-over tongue. Do you tuck it in, cut it off or just leave it be sitting above the laces? Every player has their own preference on that end.
And it is important to note that they are a limited edition release. With only 2001 pairs released worldwide, this is a boot that won’t hang around very long.
Right now, you can find a selection of the Limited Edition boots listed at ShoeBacca.
