........player exklusiv worn / issued boots

Gianluigi Buffon's Puma match worn boots. This special made to measure boots
are personalized with "Buffon" and the Italian flag. Buffon wore this type of boots
during the Uefa Euro 2008. Buffon was named captain of Italy for Euro 2008 after
incumbent Fabio Cannavaro was ruled out of the tournament due to injury. In the
second game of the group stage against Romania on June 13, he saved a penalty
from Adrian Mutu in the 1st minute as the match ended 1-1. Italy was eliminated
in the quarterfinals nine days later after a 0-0 penalty shootout loss to Spain in
which Buffon made one save.
