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
