During their first year, Puma introduced their first shoe, named the Atom, a high-top soccer shoe built like a small cleat. It was the shoe with which West Germany scored their first postwar goal in a match against Switzerland in 1950. Two years later, the Super Atom followed, which was the first soccer cleat to have six removable screw-in studs. Puma pushed forward after a year and released an enhanced successor to the already successful Atoms, the Puma Brasil.
Bearing the iconic Formstrip, all these shoes have indelibly marked their heritage in soccer. However, it was in 1968, when Puma launched what would be their most important pair, the Puma King. It was worn by the legendary Brazilian Pelé and other great soccer players, such as Diego Maradona, who made the Goal of the Century.
Such is the classic heritage of the Puma Astro Kick, a cup-sole trainer with the styling of the brand's legendary soccer shoes.
