Ok, so there is a snag and that is the $290 price range, but if you have the cash to splash, you can now do a Messi and make your own custom pair through miadidas.
What Adidas is Saying
The F50 Premium is available with a specially designed lightweight upper, featuring enhanced stability in the heel and distinctive chrome SPRINTFRAME. Combined into a premium package, with a suede shoe bag and personalized key chain, the F50 Premium turns understated style into a bold statement.
The big difference on this version is the use of a carbon TPU heel reinforcement. It not only adds a sleek look, but it is stronger and lighter than the regular heel cup, and this translates into more protection on a slightly lighter boot. Visually, it makes a big difference and it should also add a little extra when it comes to performance.

The material used in the upper also has a very unique look, and it is definitely not the same type of synthetic we see used in the regular F50. In fact, this has a sort of faux leather look, almost like the same material Adidas use on Messi’s personalized boots. So, rather than having to pick up a pair of synthetics in the same colorway as Messi, you can look at ways to create your own with a synthetic leather similar to the Ballon d’Or winners pair. Note that this hasn’t been confirmed, I am basing my opinion off the images.
If you want to get your own pair head over to miadidas and create them.
from the pictures it looks like a material similar to the predator lz. personally, i would buy a pair immediately if I knew for sure that the material was the same as the predator lz. any thoughts bryan?
Hybridtouch – that is a direct possibility considering they are currently using it on the Preds and Nitrocharge. Makes sense that it is the material they would use and it does look similar.
I am almost certain that this is not Hybridtouch. It is some kind of sprint skin but with a leather like finish just like the first messi edition f50. This seems to be much to thin to be the material that is on te predator LZ.
But it is pretty tough to tell how thin a material is from images. I'm definitely interested in finding out exactly what it is now though!
These are really nice looking. Modern color choices… understated, but with a little flair. Super expensive though. My gs2’s were cheaper…
Sick boots. Lol this is completely unrelated but Bryan do you know when any new colorways for the ctrs or vapors are going to be released??? I really need a new pair. I saw a sick pair of orange and silver ctrs but don’t know when they will be out.
