On June 24, 1987 the football world was given a gift. Today is Lionel Messi’s 27th Birthday and to celebrate, the folks at Adidas have given him a new special edition pair of boots. Messi is scheduled to wear these boots in training today, ahead of Argentina’s final group game tomorrow against Nigeria in Porto Alegre.
The new boots are a birthday edition of the adizero f50 Messi boots, which the Argentinian wizard is currently wearing for the FIFA World Cup Brazil.
These feature a sleek color scheme of green, blue, pink, orange and white, along with the iconic adidas three stripes, which combine revolutionary technologies with the precision engineering befitting of a four-time Ballon d’Or winner. They almost have the look of a white iced cake with plenty of funfetti sprinkled across the top. All that is missing is the candles!
There have only been 27 pairs made in total – each boot made to celebrate each year of Messi’s life – with two exclusive signed pairs to be given away on a competition @teammessi on his birthday. Make sure to enter if you want to try get yourself an exclusive pair.
