Luxury footwear label Oliver Cabell has partnered with the renowned, yet hard-to-Google boutique brand Sneaker to create El Clásico – a footwear style named after the fierce rivalry between football clubs Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. El Clásico is available now for $208 USD. The sneakers are limited to just 100 pairs.
With 400 miles (643km) between Madrid and Barcelona, the El Clásico match is watched by nearly 600 million people worldwide and is often referred to as the greatest rivalry in sports. So how does this rivalry relate to sneakers? We don’t know. With such limited stock, we thought it was more important to get this story out there than wait for a quote from Oliver Cabell or Sneaker.
The El Clásico sneakers are made with an upper of calfskin leather and suede from Marche, Italy. The outsole is Italian 70 Shore A rubber with an Italian vegetable-tanned calfskin footbed. The counters are suede from Marche, and the laces are Italian waxed cotton. El Clásico is hand-stitched and lasted in Albacete, Spain.
You can find the El Clásico sneakers in both Barcelona and Real Madrid colours on the Oliver Cabell website linked below. If the sneakers are sold out by the time you read this, sign up to be notified if and when more pairs become available.
