Total footwork

There are many reasons to admire the legendary Dutch footballer Johan Cruyff. He was the master of "Total Football", he had his own "turn"; he was named European Footballer of the Year three times; he refused to go to the 1978 World Cup in protest at Argentina's military dictatorship; he won the European Cup as coach of Barcelona; he smoked.

He also has his own shoe range, Cruyff Classics, inspired by the boots and training shoes he wore in the 1980s (see below). We rather like the Recopa (above) which features the great man's signature down the side. Cruyff Classics are available in Selfridges and Harrods, from £89.99.
