The boot, which will go on a whistle-stop tour across the country before the Three Lions embark on Brazil, has been made by a team of designers, sculptors and engineers and weighs as much as 490kgs.Not only that, it would fit 960 normal pairs of football boots and is equivalent to a shoe size of 700! PringlesTour: The Pringles boot has made its way across London   Gavin Bower of Pringles said: “The idea of creating the ultimate supersized talisman was to bring our players luck and influence their performance this summer.”The lucky boot will tour England to get supporters match ready and send positivity and luck to the players in a bid for them to bring home the World Cup.”The tour began earlier today after a blessing by the Rev. Mark Townsend outside Wembley Stadium, before heading to Birmingham on Saturday morning and Liverpool in the afternoon.On Sunday, the boot will be on show in Manchester and at the city’s National Football Museum the following day. It remains to be seen if Roy and the boys get lucky this summer but after 48 years of heartache and penalty shootout defeats, it’s worth a try!http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/world-cup-2014/world-cup-2014-superstitious-england-3626503#ixzz33DISJdxm Follow us: @DailyMirror on Twitter | DailyMirror on Facebooklast_img
