Italian term or phrase: Mostrina
I am really not sure what 'mostrina' means in this context. It is something to do with a pair of football boots:

"La straordinaria capacità di gestione delle superfici avanzate, in connubio con la parte di stile ha inoltre reso più agevole lo studio e lo sviluppo della particolare mostrina della scarpa."

My attempt: "Moreover, the extraordinary capacity to manage the advanced surfaces, in conjunction with the stylistic aspects, has made it easier to study and develop the particular flash on the shoe."

Am I right in thinking that the 'mostrina' is the flash design appearing on the upper?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Io per non saper né leggere né scrivere l'ho posizionata esattamente nel
centro della mostrina. Praticamente ho segnato sulla suola il min e il
max sia verticale che orizzontale e ho messo la tacchetta nel centro
delle due misure. Però, c'è un però, io sono perfetto, non esiste un
fisico con misure antropometriche piu' perfette delle mie. :-D
