Italy and Liverpool FC striker Mario Balotelli debuted the new PUMA evoPOWER Tricks MB45 Limited Edition boots during his club’s 1-2 Barclays Premier League loss to Chelsea FC at Anfield on Saturday.
The latest iteration of PUMA’s much-lauded evoPOWER is now available at World Soccer Shop and Kitbag. Balotelli’s signature version comes in the national colors of Italy. When the left and right boots are put together they form an Italian flag when viewed from the front.
According to PUMA the evoPOWER Tricks MB boots have highly personal design elements that tell the story of how the duality of Mario Balotelli’s personality has created a true Italian icon. Balotelli was highly engaged in the design that features inspiring words from his personal life.
PROFESSIONALISM, ENDEAVOUR and HUMILITY are printed on the instep along with MB45. The outstep of the left feature Genghis Khan’s quote “I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.”
The face of PUMA Football since signing with the German firm in December of 2013, Balotelli moved from AC Milan to Liverpool in what was one of this summer’s biggest transfers. He scored one of Italy’s only two goals at the 2014 World Cup.
