Italian footwear label Pantofola d’Oro, which translates to The Golden Slipper in English, launches its new design by the name SNEAKERBALL. The new silhouette draws inspiration from an old football boot sketched out on paper by the brand's founder, Emidio Lazzarini.
Dialing back to its own heritage, the old sketch is brought to life using traditional shoemaking techniques that are rooted in the brand's history and hometown of Ascoli. This method of construction gives the shoe a distressed look for an authentic feel. The model has an extended tongue that folds outwards and has a classic insert that nods to the football boots from the 80s for a retro touch. Some modern additions include the Vibram sole unit foundation.
