Pantofola.jpgProving that shoe obsession isn’t just a girl thing, a recent Twitter debate with fellow shoe lovers on designated #shoesday (every Tuesday for the uninitiated) led me to that rare thing, a new shoe brand.

With a history steeped in the dual Italian loves of football and shoes, the Pantofola d’Oro brand includes a range of luxury sports shoes, the most interesting to me being the Cereço line. Taking the correspondent shoe a step further, the Cereço range features a half-and-half construction of distressed canvas and luxury ‘only the Italians’ leathers. Including crododile skin! Where to find these beauties? So far, the only UK-focused retailer I can find is online store The Corner, who include an example of the Cereço line in their range at £118. With shoes like these you can step out like an old-school Italian footballer and fell those foam rubber Nike-lovers without even moving.
