Johan Cruyff is recognised as one of the world’s greatest ever football players having won the coveted the Ballon d'Or three times. In 1979 he began to formulate the idea of creating a range of footwear that would combine sports functionality with true elegance. After failing to convince many of the established sports brands to take his idea seriously he began collaboration with his close friend, Italian designer Emilio Lazzarini.
Initially the focus was on producing indoor football trainers; these quickly became highly sought after due their luxurious and beautiful appearance. The profile of the brand was raised further throughout the 1980's and 90's with players such as Marco Van Basten and Dennis Bergkamp wearing Cruyff football boots on the pitch, since then the brand has grown to become a leading name in sports fashion footwear. As Liverpool's premier designer footwear retailer Giancarlo Ricci offer you an extensive range of Cruyff Classics latest signature styles and classic silhouettes.
