In the midst of massive advertising campaigns for Adidas, Puma, and Nike, soccer players can get lost in all of the technology of the commercials and boot releases. As the WearTesters website begins to develop its presence in regards to soccer cleat news and reviews, we will be occasionally featuring a boot from smaller brands that may not be new, but are still left under the radar and likely exist unbeknownst to a lot of consumers in the U.S.. Tonight’s feature will focus on the luxurious Italian-made boot by Pantofola d’Oro, the Lazzarini. The Lazzarini is perhaps the purest heritage boot on the market today, featuring an ultra supple kangaroo leather upper, a PU soleplate with conical studs in a traditional pattern, and a fully stitched construction. They are the epitome of a classic boot design. They stay true to the tradition of Pantofola’s storied tradition as a company, and they have a reputation of impressive durability. Of course, they do not have flywire, motion control elements, or advanced stud patterns, but they are among the most form fitting boots on the market. They are purely a heritage boot built for comfort and a luxurious feel on the ball and the field. The Lazzarini’s are not for everyone, but for those interested in this type of boot, they’re out there!
There are multiple colorways and variations of the Lazzarini, and they have a range of prices in the high 100’s and low 200’s. When considering a leather boot from the major brands, the Adipure, King, and Tiempo all fall in a similar price range. Do they have the same clean lines, world class construction, and top of the line upper material? That is up to the consumer to decide. We love the Lazzarini silo, what do you think?
