PUMA King XL i FG Unity Soccer Shoes

The PUMA King, which turned 40 in '08 and celebrated with the launch of the KING XL (XL is 40 in Roman Numerals) - a tribute to Portuguese footballer Eusébio, who shot 42 goals (it turns 42 this year 2010) with the legendary KING in 1968, winning the Golden Boot Award as Europe's leading scorer. The KING also was the boot of choice for top soccer stars like Pelé, Mario Kempes, Rudi Völler, Lothar Matthäus, Massimo Oddo and Diego Maradona. Puma have continued to release new versions of the King range, and released a version in 2009 to celebrate the history of Italian soccer, and in particular double World Cup winning coach Vittorio Pozzo, the Puma King XL Italia.

Here's a new, very special edition of the KING XL. Introducing the

PUMA King XL i FG Unity Soccer Shoes (Black/Black/Puma Red)!

Let's unite to give Africa's children a brighter future!

New Mercurial Vapor Superfly II

Last year Nike launched the The Mercurial Vapor Superfly - and with its flywire technology, it has proven to be a revolutionary boot! So, part II of the Superfly has to be even better.

The new Superfly(ies) are here!

Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Soccer Boots (Violet Pop/Total Orange)

Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II Soccer Boots (Dark Obsidian/White/Cool Mint)

Designed for and with the help of Drogba, Ronaldo, Zlatan, Pato, Eduardo, Theo, Bendtner, Ryan Babel and many many more: the Nike Vapor Superfly II has a revolutionary outsole that combines with Nike's Flywire engineering for an utterly mind-blowing boot.

The Vapor Superfly II has an ultra-thin Teijin upper that's lined with Flywire filaments in a soccer-specific cabling pattern to deliver a precise fit and optimal support. The composition of the synthetic material has changed to offer better ball feel and be more durable.

The new Superfly II has a contoured sock-liner with a Superfly EVA insole

Nike's latest Superfly's sole includes a Carbon fiber composite plate, which is the lightest and strongest outsole Nike has to offer. It has a pressure-activated adaptive traction system for speed in all conditions. The difference between a soft and firm ground stud is 3mm. So Nike has developed a new stud that extends 3 mm when ground is soft for increased toe-off acceleration and traction. These two longer studs in the forefoot also prevent slippage and create the most comfortable feeling Mercurial ever. These new toe-off traction spikes enable extra speed bursts, just like traditional track spikes. Traction pad ensures grip no matter which way you move.

We are adding to our World Cup 2010 Jersey collection, with one of our latest arrivals: we are pleased to bring out the

PUMA Switzerland Official Home/Away Soccer Jerseys!

As with other recent PUMA jerseys, these new Switzerland jerseys look stylish, especially around their futuristic collars.

Rag Ball

It's not an official team jersey or even a soccer ball, but this may be one of the most interesting products we've ever offered.

Rag Ball

Made of bags, newspapers and materials that others may view as trash, these "rag balls" offer economic empowerment and entrepreneurial training to the young people across Africa who hand make each one. These young craftsmen and women range in ages from 12-25 and must attend school to be a part of the program. Rag Ball International offers a sustainable income, entrepreneurial training and education to the young ball makers. Each ball comes with a player card that has a photo and details about the young craftsman who made it. Since these balls are hand made, each one is unique and you will not be able to choose color.
