Just 300 pairs released of individually numbered boots.

Pantofola d'Oro have released a black and gold limited edition version of their Sirio model. Only 300 pairs will drop worldwide and each pair is individually numbered from 01 to 300 in gold stitching on the heel of the boot.

When it comes to limited edition releases nothing comes classier than a bit of gold and this isn't the first time the prestigious Italian brand have given one of their boots the limited edition treatment. They launched all gold and all silver versions of their famous Lazzarini boots to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic games.

The Sirio is Pantofola d'Oro's most visually distinctive boot with the striped design a touch more radical than the typically low key Lazzarini and Piceno and the brush up of gold and black creates a completely unique and classy feel that is essential in a limited edition release.

As with all Pantofola d'Oro boots the Sirio is handmade in Italy from soft calf leather for exceptional comfort and optimum heritage. Pantofola d'Oro boots are renowned for making some of the most comfortable boots available and have a real cult following with footballing legends such as Fabio Capello, Johan Cruyff, Roberto Mancini and Marco Van Basten all fans of the three stars.

Gold details on the lace holes, stitching and branding on the back of the boot top off the premium design and each pair is made with exquisite craftsmanship, as we found out when we visited Pantofola d'Oro's famous boot factory in Ascoli last summer.
