KELME RETRO

Towards the back end of last year, Kelme came out with the forward looking Master Moleon complete with their usual combination of cutting edge design, innovative colours and individualistic Spanish styling.

At the time, they said they had something special up their sleeves for the start of 2009. And boy, they weren’t kidding.

Feast your eyes on the Kelme Retro.

As it stands, information on the football boot is scarce as is the commercial reasoning for Kelme to go with such a radical retro design. Though, having spoken to a few of the creative team, it seems that this is very much a ‘labour of love’ by the company who want to pay tribute to the game and players of the past.

One thing we do know is that in keeping with the style of the Kelme Retro, the football boot is made from a distressed leather with some serious cross stitching and has a double quilted lining.

As for the date they’ve chosen, 1959, that remains something of a mystery. Billy Wright made his 70th successive appearance for England (a record that still stands) in that year and Nottingham Forest beat Luton 2 -1 in the FA Cup final but we doubt that either event will have made much of an impact on the Spanish consciousness.

    Nice? These football boots rock!

    I particularly like the brown colour. The stitching, the shape, makes for a fine looking boot.

    Please tell me where and when I can get these in England.

    Beats the Nike Euro attempts at retro.

    I am charmed with it,you only I still have the doubt of the sole since as like it is serious well to see an image has in addition good line seems to be very comfortable where it is possible to buy in the zone of Manchester ?

    The look great, after a couple of wears I bet these things give you a great feel for the ball.

    I guess it’s a toss-up between these and Pantofola d’Oro for a real retro boot.

  4. That is my style of football boots, I’m not keen on those plastic materials boots even tough I never used those type of boots. I prefer the classic leather football boots, can’t wait to get my feet in a pair of these Kelme Retro.

    They should do more things like this in general in the world of football in the face of so much wildness today, this is a breaker model for its simplicity and purity.
    I love.
