Scottish sneaker stalwart HANON has linked up with Pantofola d’Oro to honor the Italian label’s football heritage and, in particular, the boot that made it famous. The boot in question features a distinctive side stripe, as well as the soft calfskin leather construction from previous Pantofola d’Oro boots.
Celebrating this silhouette, HANON has created the “Modena” sneaker, inspired by the Italian city of the same name. To design the boot, the retailer mixes references to the Pantofalo d’Oro boots with design touches taken from ’70s and ’80s styling.
Referencing the boot directly, the “Modena” features the same wide side stripe and heel tabs with accents in “Electric Blue” including the Italian brand’s bouncing ball logo. The sneaker comes constructed from calfskin leather, complete with suede vamps and a pin-prick perforated leather lining. Finishing off the detail is gold foil “Modena” branding on the lateral side.
Take a look at the “Modena” in the gallery above. Painstakingly constructed by craftsman, the collaboration is limited to just 12 pairs, which are available via a raffle on the HANON web store now, before it closes on October 2.
