Balotelli boot mystery solved: They’re Pumas!

December 22nd, 2013

Last weekend, Mario Balotelli got himself in the newspaper headlines by wearing … newspaper headlines on his feet. A week later, Balotelli revealed what was behind the publicity stunt.

Balotelli tweeted out a picture of him holding the unique, soon-to-be-released Puma evoPOWER boot with the addition of a much bigger headline. It read: “Why always Puma?,” a tweak to Balotelli’s infamous quote, “Why always me?” Clever, clever Puma.

Balotelli then wore his new cleats in the Milan derby, though they didn’t help him make much of a difference. Inter won, 1-0.
