vintage hummel football boots


More goods straight outta the vault. These are two vintage hummel boots- one from 1964 (white/black) and one from circa 1950's (baclk/white).

Also, some great stories too to go with the boots. Click the Read More link below to find out more.




This style debuted in the 1964 European Championship in Vienna, Austria in which Denmark became the surprise entry in the final tournament, joining the Soviet Union, Spain, and Hungary. Denmark finished 4th, and amazing result for the National Team’s first ever appearance at a multinational championship final (World Cup or European Championship). It is unknown why the original boots incorrectly has printed WM 66 Wien (World Cup, "Weltmeisterschaft" in german, Wien is Vienna, Austria)when in fact the Cup was in England in 1966 and the Eurocup took place in Vienna, Austria two years earlier in 1964.







Original style used during the 1958 World Cup, in Sweden (the first and only World Cup ever to take place in Scandinavia). At this time hummel was still a german company, and the name used on the boots was "hummel hummel". hummel boots during this time often did not feature the now familiar chevrons on the quarter.

wow - those are classic - i'd love to play in those, but then again, not sure if I'd want to ruin such a beautiful pair of cleats!

Have you heard of Tony iammatteo soccer shoes?
