So it’s Rigobert Song we’ve got to thank: PUMA celebrates World Cup with Limited Edition Puma Kings

In what is a truly brilliant move, PUMA has celebrated the World Cup with the release of the very limited PUMA King Top 98 di FG.

Rigobert Song of Cameroon

The boots are a replica of the mismatched pair worn by Cameroon’s Rigobert Song in the 1998 World Cup, which inspired the eye catching PUMA Tricks boots on pitch this summer. Song’s act of supreme confidence epitomises the ‘Nature of Believing’, PUMA’s World Cup campaign that asks players to demonstrate their confidence of success with their actions on the pitch, including the bold step of wearing odd coloured boots. They are exclusive to and just 575 pairs have been made at a cost of £135.


Crafted by PUMA from thin and lightweight premium K-Leather, the upper of these King Top 98 football boots forms to the contours of the foot for a glove-like fit and fantastic natural ball feel.


A quilted vamp, central lacing and fold over tongue all add to the ultimate comfort and classic look of the Puma King Top 98 FG while the lightweight direct injected PU outsole provides durable comfort on firm ground.

I love this. A master stroke from PUMA. The supporting art work is rather tasty too.
