The exclusive new boots have been designed to commemorate the rise of Sadio Mané and the pride of Senegal at this summer’s African Cup of Nations

Sadio Mané and New Balance Football have collaborated on a limited-edition Furon v5 Maagum boot that will be worn by the winger at this summer’s African Cup of Nations tournament – a vibrant silhouette that celebrates his Senegalese heritage. 

The boot pays homage to the Premier League Golden Boot winner’s home country, with the model’s name, ‘Maguum’, meaning ‘Rise’ in Wolof, which nods to the ‘Simb of Senegal’, an artistic ritual celebrating the transformation of a man into a lion.

Only 405 pairs will be available, one for each kilometre travelled by Sadio from his hometown Bambaly to the Senegalese capital, Dakar, to attend his first football trials. The Liverpool FC attacker later went onto join the Senegalese football academy where his journey to becoming a lion began. 

On the launch of the new boot, Senegal forward Sadio Mané said: “I’m so proud to have a boot that celebrates my connection to my homeland. New Balance’s design team have done a fantastic job of creating a design that represents my football journey and my Senegalese heritage. I can’t wait to wear the boots this summer.”

The Furon v5 is for especially made for ‘unstoppable’ attackers who play with speed, power and precision. The boots match up to these qualities by offering unrivalled acceleration thanks to directional stud placement for an ultra-aggressive take-off as well as a full bonded mesh uppers and integrated low-profile track collar for ultimate response and natural locked-in feel.

The Sadio Mane Furon v5 Maagum boot is available now in very limited numbers via New Balance Football.
