Sports company PUMA has redesigned its legendary KING football boot by introducing its new K-BETTER™ technology to deliver exceptional performance without kangaroo leather.
The PUMA KING, for the first time ever, has been redesigned with K-BETTER™, a non-animal based upper material. The upper contains at least 20% recycled material.
K-BETTER™ has proven to outperform the previous KING K-Leather in testing for touch, comfort, and durability. PUMA will stop producing football boots with kangaroo leather altogether this year.
“The PUMA KING is PUMA’s most iconic franchise in football and has always stood for using the best materials and the latest in innovation. Over the years we have seen the boot evolve and become ingrained in on pitch and off pitch football culture, from the pitches to the terraces.” said Peter Stappen, Lead Product Line Manager Teamsport Footwear. “The new KING takes the franchise to the next-level and offers a super-soft upper with optimal stretch resistance for ultimate touch and control benefits.”
