The everlasting football boots brand are still alive and kicking in the sporting world. Proving that they are not just a 80’s and 90’s thing, Lotto has delivered a masterpiece of this Stadio Made in Italy Black-Out edition, following the new black boots trend that is dominating the market.
Lotto itself has enjoyed being in the top of the food chain when they had a period of dominance in Europe throughout the 80s, 90s and even early 00s. Having players like Cafu, Hagi, Seedorf all wore the Stadio.
Everything about the Lotto boots screams tradition and they are worn by old-school players all across the country.
Lotto got rid of the green for a delicious dose of darkness. In fact, the only visible hint of colour when the classic tongue is folded down comes courtesy of the Italian tricolour sign-off on the collar. It’s a mark of the quality of the boot and a callout to the fact that this is no standard variation – this is a Made in Italy boot, and that quite simply means premium.
Back in 1998 FIFA World Cup in France Lotto made headlines where it earned golden boot status on the feet of Croatian Davor Suker.
Featuring on the Satio boots are the fold-over tongue when flipped up you can see the wording “Made in Italy” appearing below the classic “Stadio” badge. The K-leather with the stitching blends nicely together in the Black-Out edition. The famous 12 fixed conical polyurethane studs sit nicely on the black soleplate.
Also featuring on The Stadio Made in Italy Black-Out edition is the Shock Off technology, a shock-absorbing insert made of low-density polyurethane located near the heel of the boot and the other feature is Punto-Flex technology, Lotto’s own technology that allows for the sole to bounce back, thus allowing your foot to flex in the right way.
This Made in Italy boot is just another word for premium – no place for standards here.
