UPDATE: We’ve got some rather tasty images of Messi’s football boots for you to feast your eyes on in preparation for tonight’s game!
As you can see – they are most definitely leather and have some wicked customisation to boot!
Now that everyone and their brother has taken up the World Cup Messi colourway of Chameleon Purple/Electricity, the Barcelona sensation looks ready to set himself apart from the crowd again with the Metallic Gold adidas F50 adiZero.
Both Messi and new Teammate David Villa started off the season in the Chameleon Purple/Electricity adiZero (both with the K-Leather Upper, we might add) in exceptional form – Messi bagging a hat-trick in the SuperCup and Villa and Messi helping themselves to a goal each in the La Liga opener against Racing Santander.
One interesting observation is that Messi is once again in the leather version of the adidas F50 adiZero, and this is the first time we’ll have seen the leather version of the Metallic Gold adidas F50 adiZero, either on the pitch or in release shots.
Messi and the rest of the Argentina squad are in training for what should be a fiery clash with Spain on Tuesday night – as Argentina are hosts of this year’s Copa America and Spain are reigning European Champs, neither have to qualify for their respective tournaments – meaning that in order to make this friendly worthwhile both teams are going to have to treat this as a competitive game!
What do you think of Messi’s new football boots?
We reckon they look great from a distance – but look surprisingly like the Sun Yellow version from the World Cup up close!
