Pantofola d'Oro, is a family owned shoemaker company. It was founded in 1886 in the Italian city of Ascoli Piceno. Initially the company was named “Calzaturificio Lazzarini”. These days however, the company is called “Pantofola d’Oro” and the story goes that the best British allround player of all time; John Charles, one day tried on a pair of boots from the company. The reason being that a lot of his teammates had heard about a brand, the was dedicated to craftsmanship and a supreme quality. Upon trying them he shouted “Questa non è una scarpa, è una pantofola. Una Pantofola d'Oro!". This roughly translates into “These aren’t boots, they’re slippers. Golden slippers!” Charles had then established the brand as Pantofola d’Oro, which translates to golden slipper in Italian.
