For Argentine football supporters, the 1978 World Cup final between Argentina and Holland at the Estadio Monumental Stadium, Buenos Aires will hold many wonderful and powerful memories. Played on a pitch showered in confetti, national team manager César Luis Menotti masterminded his team’s victory, with a 3-1 win to accomplish La Albiceleste’s first ever title on football’s biggest stage.
The Menotti Star football boots are a remake of a special edition PUMA King, which was released to honour Argentina’s 1978 World Cup title. Named after Argentine coach César Luis Menotti, the boots maintain a classic look with modern innovations.
Constructed with a super-soft premium K-leather material, the upper provides an excellent touch on the ball while also maximising comfort and feel, producing a boot worthy of the King title.
Remaining true to the original Menotti Star, this remake still includes the same gold colour upper, stitching patterns, logo on the tongue and formstrip construction on the lateral and medial sides.
A classical all-white direct injected bi-density outsole, featuring traditional conical studs deliver a timeless retro look evoking memories of that famous 1978 World Cup triumph.
