In association with the 2016 European Championship in France this Puma King Top Stripe Di FG boot comes in three different colourways; Navy, White and Red. The three colourways represents the French flag, the Tricolor. At the same time the colours also symbolize the French saying, "Liberté, égalité, fraternité", which means "freedom, equality, brotherhood".
In the boot, on the inside of the tongue and on the heal, the iconic stripes can be spotted. This is known from the French 'mariniére' which also is called a 'Breton shirt'. This is a long sleeved shirt with horizontal blå and white stripes, which was used by the French Navy and since then become a icon in the fashion industry. With the boot a par of extra laces is provided with the 'marinére-stripes'.
It would not be a PUMA King without a premium leather upper, and this model is no exception. A smooth and flexible kangaroo leather upper allows for an amazing touch, superior comfort and long durability.
Puma King Top Stripe di has a classic fold-over tongue. The tongue covers the laces, which give you a cleaner strike to the ball. On the inside of the tongue you can see the iconic 'mariniére-stripes, the dates are for EC 2016 start and end date, which is '10.06.16 - 10.07.16'. On the well-known sole the conical studs give you a perfect penetration in the ground, which improves your maneuverability.
