George Best peddled several versions of his signature (and incredibly futuristic for the late 1960’s) Stylo Matchmaker football boots during his heyday, but he also put his name to a leather casual shoe aimed squarely at schoolboys – the pithily-named ‘Georgie Best Strikers from Stylo Matchmakers’…


Aside from being devilishly stylish, guaranteed to last six months (if used ‘normally’), the free poster and being an utter steal at just £1.99, the real selling point was the “Georgie Best action footballer sole” which featured imprints of the man himself and an FA-esque cup on the heel.

Also, if they got dirty, you could just wash ’em! Y’know? Just like every other pair of shoes ever!

    My aunt actually still lives in the same estate as his old house, up the Cregagh Road in East Belfast.

    I mean literally, if I walked out of her front door I’d get to George’s old house in less than 10 minutes.

    Well, it’s my claim to fame.
