Johan Cruyff is a legendary name in the game of football. For boot fans who prefer a more classic look, fit and feel, one of football's iconic brands recently made its return. Take a look at these limited edition Cruyff Hatrick Euro football boots, built with the classic player in mind.
A three time Ballon d'Or winner, Dutch legend Johan Cruyff is as globally recognisable in football as Leo Messi. If you're unfamiliar with the 'Cruyff Sports' brand, then feast your eyes on these Cruyff Hatrick boots. A design modelled on the classic style of one of the most famous exponents of Total Football.
Throughout the eighties the Cruyff Sports brand became a regular feature on a variety of sports pitches, after Cruyff decided to develop his own sports brand. With products designed for the technical player, the classically developed boots would later go on to be worn by Dutch legends Marco Van Basten and Dennis Bergkamp who played a number of their greatest games in Cruyff football boots.
Cruyff football boots are modelled on the classic style of one of the best players to have ever graced the game - these are about as authentic as you get! The father of total football and the pioneer of the Cruyff turn, he played with both his heart and brain, enabling him to see the game from above.
These limited edition boots are crafted from a blend of the finest kangaroo and calf leathers for optimal ball touch and feel. Wrapping around the heel is a synthetic counter to give unbeatable support and protection. Solidly crafted and produced in Italy, the Cruyff Sports Hatrick continues to keep the classic design of football boots alive.
The Cruyff Hatrick football boots use a breathable nylon line for the interior to allow heat and moisture to be wicked away from the foot. The sole-plate is designed to improve comfort and reduce stud pressure, with added support applied in high impact areas.
Completed with the Dutch national team colour accents and the signature of three time Ballon d'Or winner and Dutch legend Johan Cruyff. The Cruyff Sports branding has been given a slight re-work since its early days.
Each boot used to featured the recognisable 'C-Flash' on each side. With one of history’s all time great football players at the helm, the boots are now given a special Dutch seal of approval with Johan Cruyff's signature stitched onto the outside of the boot.
The Black/Orange Cruyff Hatrick football boots are available to order now from selected online stockists. Are you a fan of no-thrills, classic boot design. If so, you can pick up a pair for around £125 GBP / $170 USD / €150 EURO.
