These boots were used by Gianluca Vialli during different seasons between 1988 and 1992 with U.C.Sampdoria, F.C.Juventus and Italy National Team. At Sampdoria he formed a prolific strike partnership with teammate and friend Roberto Mancini, earning the nickname ‘The Goal Twins’ (in Italian I Gemelli del Gol). With Vialli at his best, Sampdoria had the most successful era in its history. They won their first ever Serie A championship in the 1990–91 season, in which Vialli was league top scorer with 19 goals – celebrating many of his goals with a backflip, including one against Inter Milan – one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup (1990) – where he scored both goals in the 2–0 win over Anderlecht in the final (once again finishing the tournament as top-scorer), and three Italian Cups (in 1985, 1988 and 1989), also setting a record of 13 goals in a single edition of the Coppa Italia during his time at the club. They also won a Supercoppa Italiana, and reached the final of the UEFA Supercup, and the European Cup final in 1992, losing to Johan Cruyff’s Barcelona “Dream Team” of Spain 1–0.
