Blast From The Past

19th February 2012 | Posted in Mens
Bergkamp, Bosman, Vanenburg, Cruyff. Many brands take their inspiration from the past, but few with such direction as Cruyff Classics. Inspired by the iconic Johan Cruff, and worn by some of Dutch footballs greatest players, Cruyff classics bring the past to life with a modern touch for a timeless heritage look. Hitting its peak in the 80’s, Cruyff was a beloved sports brand, worn by the Dutch Olympic team at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. Instantly recognisable for fresh new design, the signature C-flash became synonymous with Dutch style and flare, both on and off the pitch. One of the most popular Cruyff styles of the time, the Recopa football boot was worn by Cruff himself when he won the football player of the year award, and Marco Van Basten, as he became the league’s top scorer. Now given a new lease of life, the original Cruyff footwear as been re-designed for style and comfort over sporting performance-we love the vintage styling of the Alano Recopa… Embedded with the Cruyff DNA, the Alano strikes a brilliant balance between old and new. With an upper crafted from patent leather, suede and mesh, and a unique gently studded sole, the Alano blends Cruff’s strong footballing history with its keen sense of style to perfection. Completed with the Cruyff signature on the side and finally the metallic Recopa branding, the Alano is a luxury trainer with a proud history, and an undoubted sense of identity. Take a look at the whole range of Cruyff Classics footwear here. RJG
