Messi Retires Boots After 1 Game!

Messi Ballon d'Or Boots

We all awaited the debut of Messi’s exclusive yet ubberly funky Ballon d’Or boots for over a week, and after only one game they disappeared! Messi wore them on January 16th when Barca took on Malaga in Copa Del Rey action but then this weekend he switched back to the his Sonic Yellow F50 adiZero.

Being that they were exclusive and a one off boot, I’m not surprised by the fact that Messi just wore them for one game. But given the fact he wore last years version on several occasions, it makes you wonder what the difference with this pair was.

Maybe they were uncomfortable, maybe someone stole them from Messi’s locker or maybe, just maybe, Messi agreed with 95% off you when you said the design was way too funky……

    I would personally retired it after one game. After all, it's one of a kind boot. Well, at least visually.

    that's a nice new haircut by Messi.

    although he now looks like Xabi Alonso.

    He is not the best one as everyone says. I don’t know why people become so crazy of his game. He is nothing compared to christiano and ronaldinho. See he just blames his boots for his bad game. I hope people will realize about him very soon.

      First you need to spell Cristiano correctly, secondly you need to make sure Messi does not agree. Third get rid of the boot nonsense, he's smarter than you, he knows how to read an article (the article says nothing about him complaining about performance) and he knows it's more the fault of the player than the boot. I have a feeling you failed reading comprehension.
