PUMA Release Their First Ever Vegan Football Boot by Reimagining the Iconic KING Model

Harnessing the power of sustainability.

February 11th 2022

PUMA has unveiled its first ever football boot made entirely from animal-free materials: The KING Platinum 21 Vegan.

The environmentally conscious boot retains the KING signature style, touch and comfort but takes the iconic silhouette into the future with its sustainable materials.

For over fifty years, PUMA KINGs have been worn by some of the game’s greats: Diego Maradona, Pele and Johan Cruyff to name a few. But the Platinum 21 is paving the way for a generation of new playmakers who are looking to don animal-free products.

Featuring super-soft 100% Vegan leather and 100% Vegan knitted yarns for exceptional fit and comfort, PUMA continues to strive for more sustainable and eco-friendly products all in the hope of reducing their carbon bootprint.

The KING Platinum 21 Vegan integrates exclusive KINGForm technology – a rib structure that fuses to the Vegan leather upper in key contact areas to deliver superior touch and increased responsiveness.

A super lightweight PEBA soleplate is built around a stability spine to provide optimal traction and support for dynamic movements without the use of any animal-based adhesives, with all prints on the boot utilizing only Vegan pigments.

The KING Vegan incorporates a brand-new, specially crafted KomfortSystem for next-level comfort with extremely soft anatomical padding for heel lockdown and optimized fit. Additionally, the KING Platinum 21 Vegan features multi-directional conical studs for enhanced agility and a molded sock liner with NanoGrip technology to ensure superior energy transmission, cushioning and anti-slip properties.

The all-new PUMA KING Platinum 21 Vegan in Ivory Glow, Green Glare and PUMA Black is available from today at PUMA.com, PUMA stores and select retailers worldwide.
