It revealed that most of the copies of the golden shoe awarded to the scorers of various European leagues, including the English Premier League, are made in a plated copper alloy in gold, or the shoe can be sprayed with gold paint. The newspaper added that no football association in the world would want to award an annual prize for a shoe in pure gold, especially since the shoe can weigh about a kilogram, so it will be very expensive. The newspaper pointed out that the quality of the golden shoe varies from one country to another, but most countries produce the golden shoe in gold plated copper. The newspaper points out that in the English Premier League, Golden Boot winners receive an economic prize of £ 1,000 for every goal scored during the season, provided that tale amount is donated in charity, so the value of crowning the Golden Shoe is moral rather than material. The Golden Shoe award began in the English Premier League in the 1993-1992 season, and former England striker Teddy Sheringham is the first to win this award in the English Premier League, while Frenchman, Thierry Henry, former Arsenal star, is the one who has won the Golden Boot award 4 times in the history of the English Premier League.
