Steven Gerrard boots up for auction
Former Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard has joined the With Love from Liverpool pro-refugee cause by donating a pair of extremely limited-edition signed boots made by Adidas to commemorate his last game at Anfield.
The collectors’ items will be auctioned off on eBay, with the proceeds being donated to the British Red Cross Europe Refugee Appeal.
Gerrard’s signed special-edition Adidas Predator Instinct boots are red and white, with YNWA (You’ll Never Walk Alone) written across the heel. They also bear his iconic number eight and the names of his children.
Only 17 pairs of the boots were made by Adidas, one for every year Gerrard played for Liverpool.
Inside the boot sits a touching farewell message, which reads: “You leave a legend, you’ll return a hero. The city of Liverpool is always with you. You’ll never walk alone.”
With bidding at the time of writing reaching just over £25,000, the sale will help provide much-needed support for the British Red Cross Europe Refugee Appeal.
Gerrard’s boots are the final item to be auctioned off for charity. The With Love from Liverpool auction included some exclusive money can’t buy prizes and opportunities.
Some successful bidders will be joining comedian John Bishop to go and see the Reds play at Anfield, while another duo won a backstage meet and greet session with band The Charlatans at their upcoming gig in the city.
The special-edition Adidas Predator boots, provided by The Anfield Wrap, will be up for auction until 6pm on November 15.
All proceeds from the auction will go to the British Red Cross Europe Refugee Appeal to support their valiant efforts to aid refugees arriving into Europe. To see the boots and place a bid, visit www.ebay.co.uk/usr/withlovefromliverpool
