Puma has signed a sponsorship deal with Samuel “Big Sam” Umtiti, the center-back defender of FC Barcelona. Umtiti won the Copa del Rey in 2017 and repeated the feat the following year, when his team won the championship of Spain's La Liga. He was also on the French national team that won the World Cup that same year. Umiti will be wearing Puma's Future boots, with their NetFit customizable lacing. The same boots are already worn by Antoine Griezmann and Jan Oblak of Atlético Madrid, Luis Suárez of Barcelona, Sergio Leonel “Kun” Agüero and David Silva of Manchester City and Marc Bartra of Real Betis.
