MESSI TO DEBUT F50i IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL

The best kept secret in football is out, Lionel Messi will wear the new Adidas F50i football boots in the Champions League final.

Lionel-Messi-F50i

As if pairing Manchester United and Barcelona together to slug out the world’s biggest club football tournament wasn’t enough, it’s now officially confirmed that Lionel Messi will also be showcasing a new pair of F50i football boots to top things off.

Since we revealed months ago that the F50i was hitting the shelves this summer and following our article on the tease images being stuck on posters around London, the clued up ones amongst you (that accounts for all the Footy Boots visitors) probably guessed that Messi would be showcasing the new F50i football boots in the final.

Lionel Messi:

Messi will be the first player to officially d’┬ębut the F50i football boots in an official game. He’ll be followed by a host of internationals when they feature in World Cup qualifying matches on June 6th.

Messi has also been filmed for Adidas alongside Adidas ambassador Zinedine Zidane to support the campaign.

Here’s the advert, followed by an exclusive behind the scenes film.

    YES , HE USED A CUSTOMIZED PAIR . I CHECKED AND ANALIZED MANY PICTURES AND COMPARING THE BOOTS WITH MODELS AND REALLY HE USED A F50.I UPPER , BECAUSE THE DESIGN IS THE F50.I DESIGN NOT THE F30.I DESIGN , BUT HE USED THAT F50.I MODEL WITH THE F30.I STUD BLADES . HOW THEY DID THAT I DON’T KNOW REALLY . MAYBE THEY HAD INJECTED THE STUD BLADES OF F30.I IN THAT PAIR OF F50.I UPPERS

    He wears the f30s. he wore them in the f30.9 (you can tell because the allsklear technology doesnt extend to the heel in f30.9) and he wore the f30i because the heel counter for those is black and the one for the f50i is clear.
