The gold colour was picked in honour of Totti’s achievements winning both the Serie A title and the World Cup.

And speaking to Roma’s official site, he said: “When I thought about a boot that could reflect 25 years of my career, I immediately thought of gold.

“This boot had to encapsulate all my values – my family, AS Roma and the city of Rome.”

Each boot has the number of each one made on the side – just 2,500 have been released

Totti will wear the boots, if fit, for the ‘Derby della Capitale’ against Lazio on April 30.

He added: “Im honoured to wear them but, above all, to be able to make them available to the fans was more important.

“They will be available as a limited edition of just 2,500 pairs – 100 pairs created for every year of my club career.”

The upper boot features the names of his three children – Cristian, Chanel and Isabel – in his own handwriting.
