Argentina and Barcelona star Lionel Messi debuted a new football boot in the Super Cup final.
Messi and his football boot sponsor adidas teamed up and designed a special F50i colourway as a tribute to Lionel Messi’s home country Argentina.
Messi used the new football boot for the first time on Friday, August 28th, when Champions League winner FC Barcelona beat UEFA Cup holders Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 in extra time, landing the European Super Cup.
On September 5th, when the Argentinian national team plays a hugely important game against Brazil in Messi’s hometown Rosario, Lionel Messi will show the football boots for the first time in Argentina.
The colours of the Argentinean national flag (gold, white and sky blue) can be found on the dark blue football boots, together with the sun emblem which is placed in the centre of the national flag.
After David Beckham, Franz Beckenbauer and Uwe Seeler, Lionel Messi is only the fourth player to receive a personal adidas football boot.
' I’m honoured that adidas came up with these boots. The design and colours reflect the love I feel for my country and my team. The game in Rosario is crucial for us and I hope these boots will help me score goals against Brazil!.
Argentinian Martin Tibabuzo, football designer at adidas, designed the football boot with pride:
' Designing an adidas boot for Messi is really the highlight of my career. Integrating the national colours and symbols like the sun was not work but a dream come true and I’m very excited with the result. Watching the game Argentina versus Brazil will now be even more special for me.
The new F50i Messi football boot will soon be available worldwide. The F50i will then be available in a total of four colourways (white, black, cyan and the dark blue Messi colourway).
he doesnt need these, only one compeditive match ago he was debuting the normal f50i
i like them, but preadators ma boots, i like the argentina thing goin on
surely it can’t be those boots as Emiliano Bonazzoli from the Serie B match up between Reggina and AC Cesena were already seen wearing them…
“After David Beckham, Franz Beckenbauer and Uwe Seeler, Lionel Messi is only the fourth player to receive a personal adidas football boot.”
Did Zidane not recieve a one off pair of Predators for the 06 World Cup?
Yes he did..
the gold ones..
maybe a bit too sophisticated? obviously it’s designed specificly for messi but the logo seems too much? no? I think they could have done something simple like Beck’s logo or perhaps Ronaldinho R10 signature
i wish there were a version of these without the argentina badge, if so then i would buy them
The boots are nice. Not the best, but nice.
Can’t wait to try these in red and white.=)
Zizou never had his own “logo”… just personalized gold coloured kangaroo predators-
Nice boot, great player, but sorry Messi, you scoring against Brazil just ain’t gonna happen.
i agree with Theo, only different color predator.
dont like the tbh
Always a bit weird with messi as he never actually wears the F50, but a special make up with F50 upper and a bladed sole , like the F30 as he dont like studded boots!
Good colourway anyway.
messi world number one player
and world best soccer boot
i love f50i alot
Messi.you deserve moreeeeeeee.u are too much.meciless messi.messi till i die.barca 4 life.
i got a pair of these, they cost me 125 pounds, they are some of the best boots i’ve ever seen, they gorgeous, but i out them on, yeah they we’re comfortable, but F50s are supposed to be ADIDAS’s version of vapors, they’re supposed to be light, them i used them for university acadmeny training about 4 times and both stud plate broke in the same place, for being the best of the best, they’re disappointing, 250 pounds of looks, nothing more
