Liverpool are flying high this season. The Reds are on the verge of a first Premier League title in almost 30 years. However, it’s not just the team that is on a high.
Sadio Mane, being courted by Real Madrid is also flying high, well at least his shoes. His shoes are flying to space.
As part of a promotion for New Balance who are almost out on their way as kit sponsors, Mane’s signed boots were blasted off into orbit by the Boston company.
The New Balance Furon V5 shoes become the first ever shoes to reach the stratosphere. They bear the signature of the Liverpool forward, and made this journey on a hot air baloon. Even taking a selfie in space in the process.
