Pantofola d’Oro reinterprets a historic style, and the sneakerball is born
[On the cover: A sneakerball unisex model]
A company that evolved out of a shoemaker’s workshop opened in Ascoli Piceno in 1886 and conquered the world of football in the 1950s has a vast heritage from which to dig up historic styles and inspiration for new products. This is how the idea of the Sneakerball came about, inspired by a football shoe originally made by hand by the company’s founder, Emidio Lazzarini. A shoe featuring the turned-up tongue typical of the football shoes of the 1980s, uppers made of materials varying from suede to nylon and the latest new sustainable materials, and a Vibram sole made of Vi-lite compound with a 3D lug design inspired by outdoor footwear. The Strobel construction technique gives the shoe a destructured look with a guarantee of comfort and light weight. A shoe that goes beyond the sneaker concept, perfect for the great outdoors, combining technical features with style.
