Une fois n’est pas coutume on s’embarque pour l’italie – pizza, pates & sauce tomate – avec Pantofola d’Oro, et parce que moi ça me fait rire et qu’on est en plein dans l’actualité on voulait savoir si vous étiez  REALLY OPEN MINDED à travers cette unique question  : « Donnez moi 3 Mots pour définir l’Italie de Berlusconi (sauf bonga bonga) ? » Le premier qui dit que je vais avoir des problèmes aura TOTALEMENT RAISON . Vous pouvez ensuite envoyer votre réponse à courrierinternatio….  NON à  contact@opnminded.com #areyoureallyopenminded !

 

Bon trèves de plaisanteries je retourne à mes affaires & bisous aux copains de Paris Sneaker !

Sinon pour une question de culture générale et parce que faut toujours savoir de quoi il retourne Pantofola d’Oro ( PDO pour les intimes ) c’est :

Pantofola d’Oro combines function, athleticism, and iconic Italian heritage to create supple, handcrafted luxury sneakers for men and women that are as comfortable and functional to wear as they are stylish and beautiful to look at.

Founded in 1886 by the Lazzarinis as a family-owned cobbler shop in Ascoli Piceno, Italy that specialised in wrestling shoes and eventually football boots, the brand quickly began to build a list of high-end clientele and a reputation for excellence. So much so that in the 1950s John Charles, a prominent football player of the time, said during a fitting « these are not football boots, they are golden slippers. » The compliment stuck and before long the name Pantofola d’Oro, the Italian translation for « golden slipper, » was adopted as the label’s official name.

Focused today primarily on men’s sport inspired luxury sneakers Pantofola d’Oro offers a collection of casual styles for spring 2012 in leather and canvas/leather combinations, all featuring the brand’s signature star emblem trio on fresh colour combinations, fluid lines and athletic stripes. In addition designer Ginny Hilfiger created three women’s styles for the collection with many of the same features, save a more petite silhouette and hues that include a hint of feminine metallic sheen.

Pantofola d’Oro has been serving Europe for more than a century and is currently undergoing a major expansion into the North American market, planning to debut in more than 200 boutiques, specialty footwear shops and top tier department stores across the continent in the spring and summer of 2012.
