HANON x Pantofola d'Oro Venezia

This summer, we connect with Pantofola d’Oro and are proud to introduce the Venezia - a collaborative training shoe designed and imagined by HANON and made in Italy to an edition of 37 pairs.
As a follow up to the Modena, a shoe we designed from the ground up, the Venezia takes its direction from an archive 80’s soccer boot and is inspired by the nostalgia of Italian football and the storied history of Pantofola d’Oro. Featuring a distinctive bold side stripe, the Venezia mirrors the original boot in its classic 80’s styling and is constructed entirely with locally sourced materials from a country synonymous with luxury footwear and the finest leathers.
Executed in a plush calfskin suede, the Venezia looks to the historic city of Venice and takes colour cues from its famous canals. Finished in a rich marine teal colourway, the upper is offset with aqua blue accents and contrasting laces. A fully lined leather upper is built into the shoe whilst attention to detail appears by way of a double layered leather side-stripe and heel tab, perforated vamp and laminated footbed. ‘Venezia’ appears as a gold foil print on the lateral side and dual branding completes the shoe on opposing heels and on each tongue.
Limited to 37 pairs only, the HANON x Pantofola d’Oro Venezia will be launching exclusively at HANON via an ONLINE RAFFLE which will begin on Thursday 24th of August and end on Friday 1st of September at 12:00BST.

A note on making the shoe:
The Modena took a number of proto rounds and various corrections, but the most impactful development was when we butchered the last sample. We wanted to take a little volume off the top to create a sharper more refined look, so cut the entire upper from the outsole and skimmed approximately 5mm off the bottom of the material. To give the shoe a cleaner profile, we stripped the lace stay and moved it down by one lace hole, thus opening up the length of the collar, which we dropped by around 15mm.
A note on Pantofola d'Oro:
Pantofola has an illustrious history in football, particularly in Italy, a country synonymous with handcrafted footwear and the finest leathers. Players to have worn the boots reads as a gallery of footballing legends and includes the likes of Johan Cruyff, Marco Van Basten, Roberto Mancini, Jurgen Klinsman and Paolo di Canio, to name just a few.
Founded back in the mid 50’s and born out of a family shoe making business, Pantofola d’Oro - meaning the ‘golden slipper’ was created by Emidio Lazzarini, a cobbler by trade and a keen wrestler. Unhappy with the boots supplied for wrestling and wishing to better his performance over his opponents, he designed a softer made boot from calfskin leather to help with mobility and traction in the ring.
Turning his hand to making football boots for a friend, word quickly spread and before long Emidio's local football team AS Ascoli had cottoned on to his revolutionary boots and artisan approach to shoe making. Players were measured up and the entire team were soon to be wearing the Pantofola d’Oro. A brand was born.
