The football boots worn by the 1966 England Captain Bobby Moore are

Originally set up in 1966, the year of which England Captain, Bobby Moore had the privilege of setting the record as the only Englishman to ever lift the World Cup, the Stylo Matchmakers football boot label launched from a shoe factory in Northampton, UK.

Today the Stylo Matchmakers sports and football boot label comes packed with nostalgic British heritage and is back in business to take on the big brands which dominate the multi-billion pound football boot market.

Stylo Matchmakers are now working with and supplying anti-corporate football boot consumers who Stylo Matchmakers say, don’t want to follow the trends determined by the corporate money-hungry marketing departments.

Now on a mission to crack the boot market once again, Stylo has relaunched a few of their most memorable classic football boot designs as well as some more contemporary limited edition models including the classic Heirship Seventy Four design which first appeared our television sets around 1974 and graced the feet of the one and only Bobby Moore OBE as well as the entire Fulham squad later in 1975.

Stylo Matchmakers had established itself earlier in the late sixties with the signings of the likes of world greats Pele and George Best. Stylo Matchmakers rapidly scaled from the signing of individual players to taking over full squads of the Seventies.

Teams included Leeds United FC, Celtic FC, Liverpool FC, Nottingham Forest FC, AFC Sunderland, and also Fulham FC later in 1975, where Bobby Moore was the club captain.

Whilst wearing their Stylo Matchmakers, Fulham made it to the final of the FA Cup. They lost. West Ham United picked up the victory, a club Bobby spent fifteen years of his career at.

By the time he retired Moore had played more than six hundred games across all competitions. His reading of the game will always be remembered as exceptional and his immaculate timing of the tackle was always so wonderfully illustrated.

“ There should a law against him. He knows what’s happening 20 minutes before everyone else ”      Jock Stein, Seventies Football Manager

In 2002, nine years after he passed away, Bobby Moore was enlisted into the football hall of fame. In 2007 a statue of Moore was built outside the new Wembley, and in 2008 West Ham decided to retire the number 6 shirt, in honor of their former Captain, fifty years after his first played for the club.

Style hair like a professional footballer

If you want to style your hair like a professional footballer, you will need to make sure you have the right type of hair styling products to get started.

To kick start a new endorsement deal, Mignolet met the Hairbond production team for a photoshoot at Liverpool’s Carven Club, a live music bar and venue located on Matthew street, Merseyside, which is still a very popular tourist attraction in the United Kingdom. Not only is this spot iconic with fans of Liverpool football club but for fans of the city and of course, The Beatles.

Hairbond is a professional, premium-quality hairstyling company providing a top range of products that are currently available in over 25 countries including the UK, USA, Australia, and Singapore.

Only sold in professional hair salons, barbershops, and reputable online marketplaces, you won’t find Hairbond products in the supermarket or in the shops on the high street.

On becoming an official brand ambassador, Simon Mignolet commented,

“Hairbond is a high-quality product that I have been using for quite some time now and I am very happy to represent Hairbond product range in the future as their brand Ambassador. Not only are the products of superb quality but also is their founder Scott who happens to be a Liverpool F.C fan. I am thrilled to be working with him and Hairbond.”

Hairbond’s founder Scott Michaels, who is also an avid Liverpool fan said,

“Mignolet’s profile is growing by the minute thanks to his move from Sunderland to Liverpool and his participation in the FIFA World Cup. It’s great to have him on board representing the brand. We have the ambition to grow, to be known amongst consumers as the “Premier League of Hair Products” and aim to sign up endorsement deals with many more Premier League players in the future”
