Pantofola D’Oro Launch Euro 2012 Boots

Euro 2012 is approaching. You've got your wallchart up, you've learnt who the Ukrainian third-choice goalkeeper is. But come June 8th, it's time for the main event to start. Yes, you need to start recreating all the goals scored in your front garden.

Fortunately, the people at Italian bootmakers Pantofola D'Oro have launched a limited edition set of boots to enable you to do this in style, and be the envy of your next-door neighbours.

The handmade leather boots are styled in the colours of European footballing powerhouses Italy, Germany, France and Spain (what, no England?) with home and away colours available for each nation.

Pantofola d'Oro translates as 'golden slippers', and these will definitely allow you to claim the golden boot - on your front lawn at least.

The boots are available from www.prodirectsoccer.com for £99.99. An astro-turf version of each pair is available for those 5-a-side glory moments.
