They say: “PUMA introduces its latest v1.08 design, highlighted by a X-ray version of PUMA’s leaping cat logo on footwear, apparel and accessories. Launching in time for this summer’s 2008 European Championships, the new v1.08 design will be worn by PUMA stars at Euro 2008™ including Nicolas Anelka (FRA), Mario Gomez (GER), Freddie Ljungberg (SWE), Alex Frei (SUI), Gianluigi Buffon (ITA) and Mauro Camoranesi (ITA). Along with the X-ray logo, the new line also features vibrant color touches and creative details that are uniquely PUMA and allow you to “show your inside on the outside”. The new v1.08 boot features an X-ray skeleton PUMA cat logo on the medial side of the boot and the skeletal outline of the foot on the insole. A striking electric blue colorway makes the boot standout from the rest as well as the “brain” pattern on the shoe’s microfiber upper.”

“The Speciali has developed a reputation as a classic boot chosen by those players who favour simple elegance over modern designs. Over the years, the boot has been associated with many players but most notably Alan Shearer who scored the majority of his 313 career goals in the Speciali. Now, with the launch of the 2008 version another bastion of English football has chosen to wear the boot – Michael Owen. Other notable past players include Rivaldo, Henrik Larrson, Steve McManaman and Mark Hughes.”

They say: “The new SX VALOR from UMBRO is packed full of performance enhancing technology designed for players of all levels. The visually striking navy and laser blue VALOR is a serious all-rounder with a focus on comfort, safety and control. This season the new boot will be worn by Chelsea captain, John Terry, as his team look to avenge being narrowly beaten to the Premiership title by Manchester United. Expect a watertight defence, as Terry and his team mates will want to make a strong start to their campaign, piling pressure on the
other big three teams and at the same time hoping to impress new coach Luiz Felipe Scholari.”
We say: Nifty.
