The shoe design features Virat’s favourite colour – white, fused with accents of gold. This is not only Virat’s signature shoe, but it’s also the next generation PUMA Spike 19.1. The removable spikes on the rubber outsole of the shoe are a dazzling gold as well. Created with a lightweight upper, that also provides unmatched support for multi directional movement on the pitch.
