Mario Balotelli wears boots covered in newspaper headlines about himself

December 16th, 2013

Mario Balotelli didn’t wear his new, blue contact lenses during Monday’s Serie A tilt against Roma, but he got our attention regardless. In an unprecedented move, Super Mario unveiled a new pair of boots covered entirely in newspaper clippings … about himself.

That’s right. For a man who usually dominates the headlines, Balotelli now looks to dominate in them.

Though his current boot supplier is Nike, we’re not sure who is responsible for Balotelli’s latest fashion statement. There’s clearly no Swoosh on them, and the Milan star’s deal with Nike is running out. According to SoccerCleats101, Puma might be the ones behind the new boots.

Or, could it be that Balotelli is simply engaging in some clever self-promotion, letting manufacturers know that his feet are once again “for sale,” kind of like an empty billboard?

We wouldn’t put it past him!
