Pantofola d’Oro, or The Golden Slipper in English, is an Italian footwear brand deep-rooted in sports heritage whose name was given by legendary Juventus player John Charles. This season, it drops its latest SNEAKERBALL silhouette inspired by an old football boot sketched on paper by founder Emidio Lazzarini.

The sneaker is handcrafted using traditional shoemaking methods native to the brand’s hometown of Ascoli, giving it its recognizable deconstructed aesthetic. The silhouette boasts an extended, folded tongue as well as its signature side insert reminiscent of classic football boots from the 1980s. Utilizing modern materials such as a Vibram sole, the sneaker is joined using sustainable alternatives in eco-leather — used in the brand’s latest collections to fuse tradition, functionality and innovation.

The latest Pantofola d’Oro SNEAKERBALL will be available at select retailers on September 14 for $260 EUR (approximately $310 USD) with Milan’s La Rinascente also be hosting an exclusive two-week pop-up for the sneaker’s launch. For more information on the brand and its history check out its website.
