Back when I was a kid, kicking ass and balls on the soccer pitch, there were only a couple of boots me and my team wanted to wear. There were definitely a few Nike and adidas models that did the rounds, but for whatever reason, it was the PUMA King which reigned supreme. I can vividly remember kids making stupid deals with their friends to cop an old pair because their Mom wouldn’t buy new ones for them. Nostalgic tales aside, PUMA Kings are great boots, and what makes this even better is the fact that the sportswear brand have teamed up with Alexander McQueen to produce two new renditions of the iconic silhouette. Bringing a super luxe vibe to the style, each boot has been handcrafted from the highest quality materials by a group of Italian artisans. We’re talking fish skin boots here. Yes, Fish skin. Unfortunately, not a lot of people are going to get a chance to own a pair, as the limited product will only be gifted to friends, family and select athletes.
