PUMA has created its first ever pair of PUMA KING that are made entirely from animal-free materials: The KING Platinum 21 Vegan. The forward-thinking, future-conscious new boot retains the KING signature style, touch and comfort but adds a special new spin on the iconic silo.
What does it mean to be a Vegan boot? Well, it means that it is created from animal-free products. That includes a super-soft 100% Vegan leather and 100% Vegan knitted yarns for exceptional fit and comfort. PUMA continues to strive for more sustainable and eco-friendly products.
The KING Platinum 21 Vegan integrates exclusive KINGForm technology – a rib structure that fuses to the Vegan leather upper in key contact areas to deliver the responsiveness players expect. A super lightweight PEBA soleplate is built around a stability spine to provide optimal traction and support for dynamic movements without the use of any animal-based adhesives, with all prints on the boot utilizing only Vegan pigments.
The KING Vegan incorporates a brand-new, specially crafted KomfortSystem for next-level comfort with extremely soft anatomical padding for heel lockdown and optimized fit. Additionally, the KING Platinum 21 Vegan features multi-directional conical studs for enhanced agility and a molded sock liner with NanoGrip technology to ensure superior energy transmission, cushioning and anti-slip properties.
“The KING Platinum 21 Vegan is an exciting milestone for PUMA as we utilize Vegan friendly materials and offer an alternative to animal-based leather products. We will continue to use Vegan materials in future products as we aim to offer an alternative to traditional leather products. The boot maintains all the key benefits and performance properties of the KING, but utilizes a special new Vegan upper material, which provides fantastic touch properties, comfort and class synonymous with the PUMA KING.” – Florian Nemetz, Senior Product Line Manager Teamsport.
