Mario Balotelli’s new football boots for kids are pure Balotelli

They're not bootiful...


Mario Balotelli is nothing if not unique. And that’s also the best thing we can say about these boots.

The Liverpool striker has just launched a line of kids’ football boots, and they’re an accurate reflection of his career; a lot of potential, with flashes of brilliance, but ultimately disappointing, confusing and most likely a waste of money.

Oh, and there’s a mohawk…


No, your eyes don’t deceive you, that’s a mohawk attached to the back of a child’s football boot, and Mario’s ‘Why always me?’ slogan, is emblazoned on the side.



The Puma evoPOWER are a special edition boot, inspired by Balotelli’s haircut (but hopefully not his proficiency in front of goal) and the colours of the Italian national team.


The boots are only available in junior size, and a Balotelli inspired football has also been launched.
