You might think a classic leather upper might limit the appearance of a boot, or may not be as exciting as a synthetic. Well, leather pioneers Pantofola d'Oro are continuing to disprove this theory with a multitude of coloured uppers, so let's take a look at the Lazzarini collection...
In stunning Rosso, Perle, Giallo and Azzurro colours, Pantofola d'Oro are proving why in the boot industry Italy is widely acknowledged as the home of leather craftsmanship. And it's their bespoke handcrafted techniques that are enabling Pantofola d'Oro to compete in the modern game, and produce such unique football boots.
By not producing football boots on such a mass scale as Nike, Puma or adidas, every one of Pantofola d'Oro's football boots receive personal handcrafted attention. It's this individual attention and time spent on a boot, that makes the colouring of an upper a more readily available process.
The stand-out candidate to receive such special attention is the Lazzarini football boots, something of a signature boot for Pantofola d'Oro. Named after the origins of the brand, founded in the Lazzarini cobbler shop over 125 years ago, the Lazzarini is a modern performance boot that's been spotted in the Premier League, Serie A and even last season's FA Cup final.
Producing small quantities of bespoke football boots is what Pantofola d'Oro have done well throughout their history, and they've managed to forge a niche within the market. The list of players to have worn Pantofola d'Oro is a testament to the quality and style of their performance with Francesco Totti, Roberto Mancini, Johan Cruyff, Jurgen Klinsmann, Fabio Capello and Marco Van Basten all wearers of the Golden Slipper.
It great to see brands constantly evolving and meeting the demands of the modern market, and with these colours already in the marketplace we'd be interested to see what's around the corner from the Italian brand.
