Football News > Sells Launch New Octopus Inspired Goalkeeper Gloves for the World Cup


The boffins at Sells Goalkeeper Gloves R&D have developed a brand new goalkeeping glove that they believe will help drive England to World Cup glory...


UK specialist goalkeeping brand Sells have made a major breakthrough in the quest for goalkeeping perfection. Research into the North Pacific Giant Octopus has led Sells to introduce a glove that takes blood from each of the octopus's three hearts and bonds with the latex glove palm to give unrivalled grip. The grip has been measured as 1000 x stronger than standard with the new octopi-serum coating.


Speaking from his Pacific R&D hideaway David Baxter, Product Director for Sells told us:


"This breakthrough is truly amazing and something that comes around maybe once every century. I really believe the octopi serum enhanced glove can help England win the World Cup"



There is only this press-release shot of the first prototype available, but you can expect the new Sells Octopi Glove to be available from June 11th 2010 in time for the World Cup.

Ha! The first two people believing this is unreal.

You'd never be able to get the ball out of your hands if it was 1000 times stronger
