Pantofola d'Oro may be the kings of black and white classics, but when the moment calls for it they sure know how to deliver some great colourways. Fresh from their Euro 2012 pack, the Italian brand celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games with the limited edition release of the Lazzarini Gold.
Thought the Lazzarini couldn't get any classier? Neither did we. But these Gold/Black Lazzarini football boots really are something else. Sure, we were already big fans of Pantofola d'Oro's headline boot but this surely has to go down as one of the smartest releases of the year! Take a look and let us know what you think.
The boots are a limited edition release, with a secondary in-line Silver colourway also hitting the market. Gold boots are a real rarity in football, and usually reserved for special edition designs. Surprisingly, Pantofola d'Oro are the only boot brand to release a gold boot in the 2012 Olympic year.
Limited to only 200 pairs worldwide, you can bet these won't hang around for long. In true bespoke fashion, each individual boot will receive its own unique edition number on the heel. For our featured boot it's the number 01, but if you're quick enough to bag one of the 200 pairs, they will come with their own number stitched onto the heel.
The classic cars of the boot world, the Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini is the pinnacle of old-school design and this could be our favourite design yet. Famous for their unrivalled heritage design, Pantofola d'Oro have become a modern-day force in the boot world with a constant line of fresh colourways and designs.
Incredibly, Pantofola d'Oro football boots are hand-made exactly the same way they were back in 1886, with the same ergonomic form. Designed to perfectly fit the shape of the foot for fantastic ball control and feel, the Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini football boots are another great classic boot with a pedigree to match.
Perfectly fitting and moulding to shape of the foot, the comfort and performance you'll enjoy is quite exceptional. The new Gold/Black Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini football boots will only be made available in a moulded PU stud configuration.
Pantofola d'Oro football boots are always highly sought after and these limited edition Gold/Black Lazzarini's will be gone before you know it.
