Olympic fever must be catching, as Pantofola d'Oro have released this Silver (okay they're calling it Metallic Grey!) Lazzarini, to support their limited edition Gold versions celebrating the London 2012 Olympic games. The Italian brand are certainly one of the kings of cool when it comes to crafting unique and celebratory footwear.
Pantofola d'Oro have once again dispelled any theories that leather limits you in terms of boot design. 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 Lazzarini Silver.
Thought the Lazzarini couldn't get any classier? Neither did we. But these Silver Lazzarini football boots really are something else. Whilst the boot market is seemingly shifting to synthetic uppers, Pantofola d'Oro are a bastion fighting for leather uppers, and proving that the natural material can still be the most talked about boot in the changing room.
The boots have been released alongside the limited edition Gold Lazzarini, and both colourways along with celebrating the Olympics are quite a rarity in football, and usually reserved for special edition designs. Surprisingly, Pantofola d'Oro are seemingly the only boot brand to release a Gold and Silver boot in this Olympic year.
The classic cars of the boot world, Pantofola d'Oro have been crafting footwear since 1886 and are the only Italian brand who retains 100% construction within Italy. Like a prestige vehicle, every boot is unique and hand-crafted in the factory in Ascoli, whilst the leathers are tanned in Tuscany.
Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini is the pinnacle of old-school design and this is one of our favourite designs 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 Metallic Grey Pantofola d'Oro Lazzarini football bootswill only be made available in a moulded PU stud configuration.
