During the World Cup, you may have seen those mysterious Puma ads starring a bunch of footballers (Pires, Ljungberg etc.) and some old dude named Pele, who pops up at the end to say, ‘Wilkommen zum fussball’ in a voice that makes him sound like your confused grandfather.
Well, here’s what the fuss was about â€“ Puma’s V1 06 Soft Ground football boot, an extremely light bit of kit that makes it much easier for the modern player to f**k up his metatarsals. Only joking Mr Puma â€“ I’m sure your new boots are tremendous and if you’d like to send me a pair (size 9 please), then get in touchâ€¦
Available from Kitbag for Â£99.
