Puma are releasing a range of rugby boots for the World Cup, all with the designation H8, after the number of studs on the boots. The first release we have for you are the Esito Finales. Esito is Puma’s cheaper, less technical version of their Puma Kings.
As sponsor of the Irish national team, Puma have taken inspiration from the Irish 2011 Rugby World Cup shirt for this colour-way; the boot has a green and white details on a black upper.
These boots don’t have the Puma King fold over tongue, but we believe that this will also be removed on future Puma King football boots and reduces the weight of the boot.The heel counter is combined into the overall design of the boot and the sole-plate of the Esito Finale H8 is designed specifically for rugby, with eight aluminium studs.
