PUMA is once again stealing the spotlight with the release of an awe-inspiring collection that pays tribute to football royalty. Teaming up with the UK-based football lifestyle brand ART OF FOOTBALL, PUMA presents the PUMA x ART OF FOOTBALL collection, headlined by the exquisite PUMA KING Ultimate AOF. It’s a spectacular celebration that echoes, “Long live the KING.”
In this exclusive collection, the PUMA KING gets a regal makeover, blending a nostalgic touch with cutting-edge innovations. The KING Ultimate AOF isn’t just a pair of boots; it’s a homage to the legacy of the iconic PUMA KING, embodying the spirit of football legends since 1968. The classic PUMA black base is accentuated with alpine snow and gold hues, while the ‘hand crafted’ stitching and a bespoke AOF KING logo add an unparalleled uniqueness to the design.
What truly sets the KING Ultimate AOF apart is its deep-rooted connection to football history. It draws inspiration from the legendary PUMA KINGs and the iconic players who’ve donned them in the past. The instep and insoles are adorned with five monumental years, each corresponding to iconic moments from legendary KING players:
- Eusébio in 1966
- Pelé in 1970
- Johan Cruyff in 1974
- Diego Maradona in 1986
- Lothar Matthäus in 1990
But this isn’t just about looking back. The KING Ultimate AOF is crafted for the future and the next generation of football royalty. The boots boast PUMA’s K-BETTER™ upper material, which in testing, has outshone the previous KING’s leather in touch, comfort, and durability. With a lightweight outsole, external heel counter, integrated stability spine, and conical studs, players can expect unmatched control and movement on the field.
Embracing sustainability, the KING’s upper is crafted with at least 20% recycled materials. It’s a step toward a greener future without compromising on performance or style.
In a nutshell, the PUMA x ART OF FOOTBALL collection is where tradition meets innovation. It’s a nod to the past and a leap towards the future, all wrapped up in a pair of boots that are nothing short of spectacular.
