Congratulations to Portugal for winning Euro 2016. I’m finishing off the coloured football boots with a pair of Puma Suisse (Swiss) from 1974. Like the aforementioned ‘Suede’ these boots were manufactured in the Puma France factory which was run by Rudi’s son Gerd Dassler at the time. The selection of colours is based on the Switzerland team of course.
The final adidas boot is a NASL Super manufactured in Yugoslavia and shown here in the US ’81 catalogue. Adidas started producing boots bearing the licence of the North American Soccer League in 1978 and produced several boots and a turf trainer. I’m hoping to cover the NASL at a later date but in the meantime enjoy the boots.
