Leading sportswear manufacturer, Puma, has instigated a limited-edition special collection named ‘Virat Kohli X PUMA Gold Spike 19.1’. The purpose of this launch is to pay tribute to team India’s captain and PUMA’s ambassador, Virat Kohli- keeping the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in mind. The first shoe of the collection will be auctioned at the inaugural edition of the Indian Cricket Heroes event that will take place in London. This new collection sports a bee design and features Virat’s favorite colours – white with gold accents. The company will craft only 150 units of this special collection.
The pairs come with a collector number printed under the tongue with one8 logo and PUMA form-strip at lateral sides. The shoes also have removable spikes on the rubber outsole in matching the gold colour. Additionally, the footwear characterises PUMA’s EVA midsole that offers maximum comfort and improved stability on the pitch.
Team India’s Captain, Virat Kohli said ‘I am humbled to receive this special treatment from my PUMA family. With a very important tournament ahead of us, I’m excited to take the field in PUMA’s custom-made Golden Shoes. I have always loved white and gold and the design truly compliments my needs in terms of the fit and style.’
