New Balance commemorate Raheem Sterling’s ‘route to success’
By Owen Hill on Wednesday, October 5, 2022
Raheem Sterling has released his fourth signature New Balance football boot, designed with the intention of paying homage to Sterling’s- quite literal- ‘route to success’.
Taking to Twitter to share the meaning behind the eye-catching boots, Sterling explains that the design is that of the seats on the buses he used to take to training, accompanied by his big sister Lakima, who rode with him every day.
3 buses to get to training. 18, 182 and 140. I'll never forget those numbers. No matter what, my big sister Lakima with me every single day. My latest boot is dedicated to her and all those moments we shared together, on the #RouteToSuccess.@NBFootball pic.twitter.com/SsRt2RhhtC

“My journey to this point was far from easy but when, as a family, we didn’t have a lot, we always had each other, and we pushed each other to be the best we possibly could be.”, said Sterling.
