Pringles Good Luck Boot
Pringles surveyed hundreds of supporters to find out about their matchday rituals. On the list were sitting in the same seat, drinking from the same pint glass and hiding behind the sofa to increase their side's chances of winning. In response, the potato snack company have created the huge boot made out of 1,500 Pringles cans. The Pringle boot weighs 490kgs and was made by a team of designers, sculptors and engineers. According to Pringles the equivalent shoe size would be 700 and the soccer slipper would house normal pairs of football boots. The intention is to use the big soccer boot as a talisman and superstitious England fans are invited to rub the giant boot to bring luck to Roy Hodgson's men. The lucky boot is currently on tour throughout England.
