The Puma King celebrates its 40th birthday this year.

First introduced in 1968 as the “King Eus'©bio” to honour Portugal’s legendary Mozambican-born soccer star Eus'©bio da Silva Ferreira who was the top scorer at the 1966 World Cup.

Over the years, the King became a legend and was worn by legends. The world’s greatest football stars wore the King including Eus'©bio, Brazil’s Pele, Argentina’s Maradona and Dutch maestro Johan Cruyff.

Roger Harrison, Marketing Director PUMA UK:

Nike football boot of the year 2009 We’re thrilled that the King XL has been awarded Panel Football Boot of The Year by Footy-Boots.com.

The PUMA King is one of the most recognised football boots in the game with a long standing heritage and it’s great to know that the boot is still a favourite today as it was when Pele played.

  • not to spoil the moment but I tried the boot on today and my god where they weird shaped and felt awkward. I love the black/yellow like the pele wore and carrick wear these days but I was disappointed not to take advantage of the sale price as well…

  • I think these boots are brilliant!

    Ran to the mail collection centre because I missed the 7am courier, made it just in time, ripped into the packaging, drove like a mad thing to our match…

    And it fit perfectly!

    Have never worn anything that fit so well and was so unbelievably comfortable – although my konstrukt-IIs are very very close!
