These ‘ere are the new Puma Kings, to be worn for the first time by Yaya Toure, Mikel Arteta and Michael Carrick in the Premier League today…

Nope. Puma King’s should be monochrome (with trace flecks of gold) and look like they could survive a nuclear apocalypse if asked. This just ain’t right.

All part of the slow homogenisation of the ‘classic’ boot designs into the gaudy, lightweight, flaky, plastic-y nonsense that parade as ‘elite’ boots these days – or maybe we’re thinking too hard? Gosh, what are we REALLY angry about?
