Pele wore Pumas football boots at the 1970 FIFA World Cup, requesting the referee to stop a game in the last minute so he could tie-up his pair of Puma’s and create vital promotion for the Puma brand.

He knew the cameras would be on him and so did Puma. And they wanted the cameras to focus on his football boots.

Barbara Smit, in her book “Three Stripes Versus Puma”, states that PUMA employee Hans Henningsen paid Pele $120,000 to wear Pumas.
