Lets get some shoes: Pantofola d’Oro

By cchapman on June 25th, 2009

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.

Adam Kimmel polo neck

adam kimmel grey jumper knit polo.jpgPolo necks are still too Alan Partridge for me; as much as I love our man from Norwich the thought of actually wearing one fills me with dread. Polo necks conjure up images of saintly vicars and friend’s dads, not high fashion.

Adam Kimmel‘s slouchy cowl-neck version of the polo is perfect for fellow fence-sitters, you can roll it up if you’re feeling brave or keep the collar down. The marl-y grey colour is versatile and smart enough for formal looks, and the black trim adds definition to the silhouette. Snap it up for £270 from The Corner.
