AKUNA SOCCER SHOES
We are pleased to announce that Mr Bruno Cirillo has chosen to wear AKUNA soccer shoes.
Only a genuine Italian football player could wear and show off these shoes!
Let us introduce you to the company!
Characteristics of CINQUESTELLE products
To each one his own
Study and reaserch for a product with these characteristics, require the player to wear a tight tool in order to have a better sensitivity in kicking and targeting the ball. It has to be more like a sock than a shoe. To accomplish this, a few expedients are adopted, such as:
- Anatomical form with low toe-end.
- Flexible and light leather insole
- Soft and elastic flexan heel counter
- Valuable leather, soft but strong
- Wrapping upper without stuffing
- A particular and challenging crafting technique, mostly manual
- Soles entirely sewed to the upper
CINQUESTELLE workers, with their technical skill, are able to solve any kind of problem: wide or tight sole, different length of feet and/or legs, toe longer than other fingers, marked or flat arch of the foot, inflammations like bursitis, tendinitis, allux valgus.
The uniqueness of CINQUESTELLE product completes with a frivolousness, which is exclusive too: customizing through embroidery (names, numbers, shields embroided on the tongue or heel counter) introduced after Roberto Baggio wanted to insert his childrenΆs names on his shoes.
Akuna, artisan company producing sport shoes and wear, was founded in 1997 but its roots go back to 1911, when LAZZARINI PASQUALE (1882-1969) upon returning from a long apprenticeship in Pavia, first and by that time only shoe factory district, sets up a shoemaker workshop in via della Fortezza, 9.
He produced soft moccasins for the citiesΆ top class.
His son Emidio, (1915-2001)
..and around 1950 Mimì looks for help, which he finds in LUPINI GIUSEPPE (Pippo), born 1938, hired as a workshop boy
Together they found Akuna and with them there is Pippo, first and favorite pupil of the master, designated to pass on his teaching.
There are countless players among PippoΆs clients, the most well known: PUSKAS, DI STEFANO, JASCIN, BONIPERTI, LIEDHOLM, CHARLES, SIVORI, MANFREDINI, NIELSEN, PASCUTTI, ALTAFINI, FALCAO, CEREZO, CRUJIFF, CONTI, PECCI, PRUZZO, JORDAN, WILKINS, RUSH, MAZZOLA, RIVERA, CORSO, CAPELLO, VAN BASTEN, PULICI, GIORDANO, CORDOVA, BURGNICH, SNELLINGER, DE SISTI, PERUZZI, NELA, GIANNINI, BONINSEGNA, KLINSMANN, BAGGIO, SIGNORI, and sorry if Pippo canΆt remember every one of them.
We invite you to our Showroom to see up close, to try them and be convinced that it is the best handmade soccer shoes!
