Why Always Me? Mario Balotelli is probably asking himself that again as he laces up another special edition pair of his Puma evoPowers with the easy answer being the Liverpool striker is one of the globe’s top players.
Balotelli was spotted breaking in his new exclusive cleats at Liverpool’s Melwood Training Ground today. The colorway pays tribute to Balotelli’s Italian heritage with the colors of the Italian flag on the cleats with a Red/White right cleat and Green/White left cleat.
After being rested, along with several other star players, in the mid-week Champions League match against Real Madrid, Balotelli should be ready to go when the Reds host Premier League leaders Chelsea at Anfield. The Italian international has yet to open his account in Premier League play with Liverpool and will be hoping to end that drought this weekend.
The #45 made headlines when he signed with Puma and took to the pitch with an exclusive Headline version of the evoPower while still playing with AC Milan last season. This cleat was also available for retail in a limited edition run from World Soccer Shop.
Balotelli will be the only player on the field wearing this exclusive pair of cleats but you can own a pair if you act fast. World Soccer Shop has the only 45 pairs that are being shipped to the U.S. so be ready to order. The special edition cleats are only available in sizes 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5 with less than 10 pairs for any given size.
Make sure you have a pair of this limited edition cleat. World Soccer Shop will have them available on Saturday (but they won’t last long).
