Puma and Mario Balotelli's designed children boot has a mohican-style patch of material on the heels
Mario Balotelli is full of surprises.
Either with his on and off field tantrums, funny hairstyles and outrageous own goals, Balotelli maverick reputation is of wide spread knowlegde.
The Liverpool striker has pulled up another one with his boot.
Balotelli will be partnering with Puma to release an unusually designed pair of children's football boots.
The boots have a mohican-style patch of material on the heels similar to the one he usually spots on his hair.
The boots is available online on shopping site Zalando for £38.00 (N11, 853).
The unusual boots are accompanied by a matching football which also has a mohican-style patch
On the field however, the striker has been left out of Liverpool's two league games so far and has been made to train with the reserve team as Brendan Rodgers look to force him out of the club.
Balotelli, though, is reluctant to leave Liverpool this summer, as he will pick up a six-figure loyalty bonus if he stays on.
Italian club Sampdoria have been linked with a move for Balotelli, but his £90,000 weekly wage is thought to have provided a stumbling block.
