Pantofola d’Oro are known to be the football boot of the aficionado, the maverick and the aspiring hipster. They are typically classic in their design, premium in terms of materials and quality and classic in their colourways. You’re unlikely to find Pantofolo d’Oro launch orange and yellow colourways. The new Superleggera 2.0 is all of the above.

Redesigned to be lighter than ever, the new Superleggera 2.0 arrives in two traditional colourways; black or white. Despite the new modern upper design, the Superleggera 2.0 still offers the same classic touch on the ball thanks to the handcrafted k-leather upper.

One of the first things you notice about the new Superleggera 2.0 are those strong chevron-styled stitch lines running throughout the upper, which provides a modern look. We see a lot of similarities between this and the Adidas Copa 19. Pantofola d’Oro have also reconfigured the design so that further weight is trimmed off making this the brand’s lightest boot. Despite the more modernised upper, this boot has stayed true to its roots.

Handcrafted in Italy from the finest k-leather, the Superleggera 2.0 is exactly what a Version 2 should be: an improvement on the original while retaining the core featured of what the boot was about in the first place.

In terms of the boot itself, Pantofolo d’Oro have really honed in on the quality of the construction and materials used in the manufacturing process and have provided a stylish modern-retro boot. Sublime.
