Traditional football bootmaker Pantofola d’Oro has released a limited edition collection in the colours of some of Europe’s biggest footballing nations.
The handmade calf leather boots depict the colours of Italy, Germany, France and Spain. Vibrant home and away colourways are available for each nation.
Pantofola d’Oro, which translates as ‘golden slippers’, have been hand-making traditional sports shoes in Ascoli Piceno, Italy, since 1886. Using soft calf leather means the boot moulds to the foot, giving the player greater comfort.
If the manufacturer is new to you, Pantofola d’Oro boots have been worn by many greats of the game including Garrincha, Alberto di Stefano, Roberto Mancini, Fabio Capello, Marco Van Basten and Jurgen Klinsmann.
The boots are available from www.prodirectsoccer.com for £99.99. An astro-turf version of each pair is also available.
