Successful Debut Against Istanbul BB: Custom Puma King 'Black Lives Matter' Kevin Mirallas Boots

Update As expected, Belgian Kevin Mirallas wore his custom Puma King 'Black Lives Matter' boots against Istanbul today and also scored a goal. Gaziantep won 2-1 away from home which means that Istanbul is closer to relegation than consecutive league titles.

The classy new Puma King Platinum cleats customized by French artist were officially unveiled a few days ago and will be worn by Kevin Mirallas against Istanbul today.

This happens at a fitting point of time since Cameroonian assistant coach Pierre Achille Webó Kouamo of Istanbul was abused by Romanian 4th official Sebastian Colțescu this week against Paris Saint-Germain. Romanian Colțescu denied any discriminating intentions afterwards. The match was suspended as desired by the players and replayed on the next day.

Puma King Platinum 'Black Lives Matter' - Black / White

Check out the new Puma King Platinum cleats in black / white below.

Featuring a 'Tricks' approach for the left and right shoe, the new Puma King Platinum boots combine a mainly black shoe with a mainly white one. The left shoe is white with a black tongue, laces and external heel counter. There are slogans to encourage equal treatment such as 'say no to racism' or 'we stand together. The right shoe flips the colour combination to be mainly black with white parts such as the Formstripe on the outstep. Again, slogans to convey the message of non-discrimination round off the look.

The new King Platinum soccer cleats from Puma are exactly the same as all colorways released thus far tech-wise.
