Breaking records might be his thing right now, but adidas has taken a step back and revealed a new pair of boots that celebrate the childhood of Leo Messi. The all new adidas Messi mirosar10 boots, are inspired by Leo’s upbringing in Rosario, Argentina where he learned the game and scored his first goals, before becoming the current day legend that he is!
Where does the title of the boot come from? Well, mirosar10 translates from Spanish to ‘my Rosario’ with the number 10 given prominence in the naming, in the same way Leo has himself given prominence to this number for both club and country.
You can currently order these boots at Soccer.com for $229.99.
Uniquely designed and truly inspired by Leo’s childhood, the boot reflects the roots of his current day legendary status. There is a lot of deep meaning in these, and Adidas paid diligent attention to the important details with important personal touches. The orange of the boot signifies his first ever club, with the green representing their fiercest rivals, who Leo scored 4 goals against in his first significant 11-a-side game as a young child.
The boot insoles are printed with a map of Rosario, Messi’s home town in his beloved Argentina, which is highlighted throughout along with the Batallón pitch – an abandoned military base field that Leo used to sneak onto through a hole in the fence to play football with his friends when he was a small child.
Four-time Ballon d’Or winner Leo Messi has torn up the history books in recent years, breaking many records in the process and his incredible goal haul at the age of just 27 confirms his place as one of the best players to ever play the game. Having eclipsed Gerd Muller´s 85 goals in a single year in 2012, Messi has gone on to score over 400 career goals, and these unique boots are testament to where it all began in Rosario, Argentina.
