In light of winning the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for the third consecutive year, Adidas has created a personalized pair of F50 adiZero to celebrate Lionel Messi’s unique achievement! You might have caught our sneak peak yesterday, well here are released images of the Royal boot! There is no doubt Messi is a living legend and he thoroughly deserved to win the award once again. As many of you will agree, there are not many better there are not many better gifts than a personalized pair of boots – and this official Gold/White/Flash Red is all Messi!
There are plenty of details on this boot that represent Messi’s achievements starting with a leather upper, which is his preferred choice. On the inner side of the boot, you will find “FIFA Ballon d’Or player of the year” and “Gracias A Todos” imprinted just below the Adidas signature 3-stripes. The outer side of the boot features a very, very smart integration – there is a year listed on each of the 3-stripes, signifying the years Messi has won the award! And just below that, you will find Messi’s new logo. The heel features an Argentinian flag, representing the pride Messi has for his country.
For those of you that want to see the new boot in action, you won’t have to wait long – Messi will be sporting them this weekend as Barcelona take on Real Betis. For those that want to buy an exact replica pair, I am afraid you are out of luck – Adidas has created a one off for Messsi only (as it should be!) although you might be able to replicate a similar look using miAdidas.
