The name Rudolf has significant ties to football via Herr Dassler’s Puma, so it’s fitting to see it make a couple of appearances on this Kit and Bone release.
That said, so does “Adolf” thanks to adidas. Fortunately, it’s unlikely to be similarly celebrated by football’s self-styled “Unofficial Partner”. No, Kit and Bone are paying tribute here to the legendary red-nosed reindeer as part of their special “North Pole Premier League” football shirt range.
Putting an oddly menacing spin on the character beloved by children at Christmas, the black design somehow suggests semi-pro US football and heavy metal in equal measure, and with pro-level performance technology.
