Vintage football boots Obsession


My beloved Pantafolio’ doro Superstars have had their day, fed up of thinking that my next pass will leave my toes tasting the leather of the ball, and leaving me embarrassed.

So this leaves me with the task of replacing these ‘golden slippers’ with something worthy of blessing my size 6’s. This journey led me to reconnect with my fascination and Vintage Obsession with football boots from yesteryear.

This blog is a visual homage to my elder brother who probably thinks that I’m alittle eccentric when it comes to boots.

I love these, even though they remind me of footwear the black and white cinematic Harold Lloyd would wear

Now Welcome to The Vintage Cinquestelle range.

About 12 years back I opened the eye’s of many of my ‘ballerboot’ friend’s when I purchased my first pair of Pantafola doro football boots. Sent shock waves through my football club. These Cinquestelle’s will do the same things:

Have my eye’s on these Cinquestelle’s as a second purchase if the Vintage Adidas UWE’s don’t materialise
