The Gourmand x Nike: Andrea Pirlo

  • When you think of famed footballer Andrea Pirlo, there are probably a few things that immediately come to mind: his enviably cool disposition on & off the field, his rhythm, that Panenka penalty, his hair and, finally, his love of wine. All of which make for a rather impressive gentleman.

     

    So, in tribute to the Italy legend, Nike has created the Tiempo Pirlo. Made from rich, premium leather in a Merlot colour way, with a genuine cork sock-liner; the boots subtly nod to the Tiempo’s heritage, and the process of producing wine. To celebrate this unique boot, The Gourmand united the two disciplines in a creative shoot to commemorate Pirlo’s dual careers as footballer and winemaker, and a connoisseur of the finer things in life.  After all - no Pirlo, no party.

     

    The limited editions boots are available via the Nike Football App and in store at Nike Town London.
