Stylo Matchmakers Heirship Sixty Eight:
When Stylo truly took off:
The classic Stylo Matchmakers Heirship Sixty Eight design was the first Stylo Matchmakers boot to go, as we would describe it today, viral, back in 1968. The Heirship Sixty Eight boot launched with its distinctive and prominent white stripes, which then wowed the industry, as beforehand, football boots were generally plain or simply all black. With this new designer element to Stylo Matchmakers and the savvy signing of no other than George Best, the brand watched sales skyrocket with over 1 million pairs sold.
This was trailblazing at the time and led the way for how footballers worked with brands. Stylo became the biggest English boot label and went head to head with the German giant brands.
George Best had influenced a world of aspirational juniors to wear these stand out Stylo Matchmakers football boots and you could only get them in quality sports shops.
Adverts including “put yourself in my shoes” and “It’s only the best for me and Georgie” went out all over the world. In an age without the internet, the ads were placed in all of the top football magazines which sent customers to their nearest sports retailer.
This remastered and modernized re-boot has the same iconic black and white design and is still today a Professional football boot for use on hard natural pitches. The premium lightweight Stylo Matchmakers Heirship Sixty Eight real leather upper offers the player maximum comfort and ball control.
