Vincent Kompany, the center back and captain for both the Manchester City and the Belgian national soccer teams, has signed an endorsement deal with Puma. Kompany has long been a wearer of leather boots on the field. Since Dec. 14, however, he has been playing in the Puma Future (the Stun Pack cleat, to be precise), whose upper is made of Puma's Netfit material combined with a form-fitting textile base and a knitted ankle sock. In league play, Kompany has more than 1,000 duels and 1,500 clearances to his credit.
