Year of 2006 was a great year!

What comes to football boots the year of 2006 was a superb year for many brands! 

  
Nike released the Mercurial Vapor III, maybe the best Vapor ever made. Adidas continued their Predator range with the Absolute and introduced the F50.6 Tunit. Puma made a comeback with the Puma v1.06, and really competed once again with Nike and Adidas!

 
I bet we all have some memories back in 2006? If so please share the moments!

Puma v1.06 i

  


In 2006 Puma really got back to the fight with Nike and Adidas. Puma presented the v1.06 which was the lightest boot Puma ever made.  
Some great players wore them such as Samuel Eto’o, Robert Pires, Alexander Hleb and Fredrik Ljungberg. Puma used a so called “Scholler ConTec” upper material which made the boot light and gave close to bare foot feel. To increase the bare foot feel puma reshaped the front of the foot and used “Puma Lace Wrap System” to ensure a optimal fit.To reduce even more weight Puma used carbon fibre in the soleplate, which gave more flexibility and strength. 

  
Puma v1.06 had also a stud pattern that was different from the other brands, especially the studs in the heel was designed for speed.
