Puma King & King SL in Peacoat Colourway

Puma King SL Peacoat

Puma have given their latest incarnation of their long-running King a fresh new look with a unique Peacoat / White / Pink colourway.

We rarely see blue Puma Kings (the last we can think of was the Metallic Royal / Dandelion version of the Finale), and Puma have certainly gone with a different overall vibe for this new edition of the 2013 King and King SL.

Definitely a little busier in appearance than other Kings this generation, this Peacoat version contrasts a dark navy upper with lighter blue, white and pink.

Definitely a lot less ‘classic’ than previous white and black-based colourways, we reckon the designers at Puma had in-form King-wearer and Manchester City midfield boss Yaya Toure in mind.

Of course, the colourway is just a bonus when you’ve got such a superb boot underneath – and Puma fans are doubly lucky as the Puma King and the King SL are both reportedly excellent.

The Puma King uses a premium leather forefoot for a natural touch, whilst the King SL boasts a leather-touch superlight synthetic.

Both boots make the most of a microfibre midfoot and heel quarter that works with the lacing system for a snug, secure fit across the midfoot and easy-to-break in heel.

The two cleats also use a super-thin tongue for sweet-spot contact with the ball all across the forefoot.

Puma King SL SoleplateBoth cleats utilise pebax outsoles, but whilst the King focuses on a solid foundation for improved stability on a variety of surfaces, the King SL is more like a speed boot – including a combination of angular and conical studs and injected spine and forefoot plate.

The Puma King weighs in at 238/8.4oz, whilst the King SL beats out the adiZero at 164g.

Available to order in the Footy-Boots.com store today, is this another great heritage release from Puma?
