After the appointment of Fabio Capello as England manager, Gianfranco Zola at West Ham and Roberto Di Matteo at MK Dons, there is something of an Italian invasion occuring. This Italian influx has also affected football boots with the arrival of Valsport, Diadora and now Pantofola d'Oro on the UK shores.
Pantofola d'Oro football boots are a classically designed boot, from a company which has been designing and developing since the 1950's. With a niche in the football boots market Pantofola d'Oro football boots have something of an underground following, but have reputation and quality enough to have been worn by legendary players Roberto Mancini, Jurgen Klinsmann, Fabio Capello and John Charles.
Juventus legend John Charles is touted as the greatest all-round player ever, equally effective and comfortable playing in defence or up-front and scoring 93 goals in 155 matches as testament. The Juventus giant is also responsible for giving Pantofola d'Oro their name, after being approached by the Lazzarini family to try their football boots Charles remarked the boots were so extraordinary they were like wearing "a golden slipper"! This became the company name as Pantofola d'Oro translates into Golden Slipper.
The new Pantofola d'Oro Dream Canguro football boots are one of the latest releases from the Italian company and are extremely high quality football boots. The traditional design of the Dream Canguro football boots is finished with white sole plates and a classic brown soft felted lining offering unrivalled comfort.
The most important feature of the Pantofola d'Oro New Dream Canguro football boots is the kangaroo leather upper. Just from touch you are instantly aware of the quality of the leather, which is extremely subtle and soft to deliver excellent performance. This performance is delivered through touch and feel for the ball, achieving that 'second skin' feel most football boots strive for.
