We’ve seen images of these Gold adidas F50 adiZero’s floating around for months now, and now adidas have finally confirmed their official release!
After speculation that they were to be used in the World Cup Final, we can now reveal that these swanky football boots will be the new colourway exclusive to Lionel Messi for the start of the 2010-2011 season.
Much lighter than the usual bold-gold we’ve seen from football boots like the JB Final Puma series, which we thinks works well as it’ll look pretty smart on the pitch, rather than a darker gold that might look a little too much like the Sun Yellow World Cup colourway of the adiZero.
As followers of previous adiZero colourways, we’re also fans of the plain black studs – whilst the Pink studs on the new Champions League colourway are fine by us, we know from the some of the comments that you guys have been looking forward to an adiZero with a more reserved soleplate design.
The Metallic Gold adidas F50 adiZero will get it’s on-field debut 2 weeks today when Barcelona take on Racing Santander away on the 29th of August (presuming Messi plays, of course) in the La Liga Season opener.
For those who are new to the adidas F50 adiZero, here’s a the boot in a nutshell – weighing in at 165g in it’s synthetic version, the adiZero was the lightest football boot in the World at it’s release.
Whilst it’s since been succeeded by the Puma v1.10 SL, the adiZero was the top-scoring boot of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and has won several converts from other brands (Including Louis Saha, Nicolas Anelka and Jon Carew) to add to it’s already impressive stable of the likes of Arjen Robben, Lionel Messi and David Villa.
