You might have spotted some images of the boots Lionel Messi was going to wear in last nights Champions League final over the past week. Well, Messi wore them last night with absolute style while proving beyond doubt that he is the best player in the world right now.
Well, now the Electricity/Infrared/Sharp Purple colorway is available to players in the US. They come with Messi’s preferred Leather upper and weigh in at an ultralight 6oz. Through testing the F50 adiZero, I preferred the full-grain adiLite leather upper myself due to what I determined to be better touch and a higher level of control on the ball. The colorway itself is quite unique and offers a completely different look. The bright Electricity yellow is sure to stand out no matter what your team colors are, without looking out of place (as long as you are a good player that is!)
There are obviously several differences between Messi’s personalized pair and the ones you can get. Messi’s pair have been designed to his specifications and include: a more padded/redesigned heel region, an Argentina flag, Messi’s name and number – I am sure there are also other more in-depth changes we can’t see. The heel is obviously an important area where Messi requires more padding, with players continually chopping at his feet. I’m not surprised that he requested a different design to provide additional protection. Basically, what this colorway does is give you the opportunity to wear the same look as the creative Argentinian talisman!
