Notes - Low-tier black and team gold boots from Puma's popular v1 speed silo produced around 2008. The v3.08 is based off the top v1 model but with slightly altered design charactersistcs to make it a more affordable alternative. The upper is still made with a very high quality leather and synthetic cross upper that offers the soft touch and durability of leather at the forefront but with a lightweight synthetic rear which keeps the model built for speed. Off-centre lacing allows for a greater and cleaner strike zone at the forefront, while an external heel counter added at the back gives protection and support. A carbon-fibre composite in the outsole makes this boot even lighter and is assisted by padded insoles that reduce shock from the firm ground soleplate, made up of a 17 rubber stud configuration. The top v1 model of in this silo was very popular at the time of release, used by the likes of Samuel Eto'o and Nicolas Anelka.
