Puma bring brown leather back with gorgeous King Top Italia boot

Puma's latest limited edition boot offering brings classic style in a heritage package with modern accents.

Brown leather boots used to be ubiquitous on football pitches before being taken over by flash youngsters with modern black colorways on their feet. That is all but a distant memory with some of the eye-catching colorways currently on display in the sport. Puma may well change that, at least briefly, with a new boot release that is the very definition of class.

The new boot is the rebirth of a classic just in time for the World Cup. Based on the Puma King Top, it is a heritage boot to its core. With an upper made of kangaroo leather, a PU outsole and studs, brown leather, and a foldover tongue, it is heritage personified.

This special edition of the Puma King celebrates Italy's 1982 World Cup win and is limited to just 898 pairs (to honor the Italian federation's founding in 1898). The heels come equipped with the badge worn by Italy in that World Cup in Spain, complete with the third star that they won in that tournament. The side of the boot  features the classic King logo with "Campioni Del Mondo" and the year MCMLXXXII in gold letters. The insole features the same accents right under the heel.

Who knows, maybe Roberto Martinez won't be the only one on the sidelines in brown leather.
