Mario Balotelli has taken the customised football boot to the next level by splashing it full of headlines he has generated during the course of his career.
The Italy and AC Milan star wore the boots in his club's home game against Roma in Serie A.
Balotelli’s boots tonight covered in the headlines he has made https://t.co/nbXdBOLrOE— James Horncastle (@JamesHorncastle) December 16, 2013
The white boots looked innocuous enough at first but, upon closer inspection, they look a lot like a series of newspaper clippings.
The next step, of course, will be for next week's boots to feature this week's headlines about him wearing the boots.
