With pretty perfect timing, adidas has released the second colorway in the Messi 15.1 series. This latest version features a blue and white colorway that matches the iconic colors of the Albiceleste, while the yellow studs represent the sun on the Argentinian national flag.
Lionel Messi played an integral part in the development of these boots, so adding a fresh coat of paint that represents his nationality only makes sense. The design is extremely fresh, with the pop of blue across the external messiFRAME offering an eccentric look! This is also a boot intended to suit the Gambeta – the uniquely Argentinian playing style adopted not only by Messi, but also past Argentinian greats. The Gambeta style is all about keeping the ball close to your feet, using shoulder drops and feints to fool your opponent, particular skills that have long been associated with Messi.

Why perfect timing with the release? We just released our review of the Messi 15.1, offering some fresh insight into what the premier release has on offer. For the right player, they offer next level performance thanks in part to the messiTOUCH upper. Ensuring you have the right fit is the key element to making them work, these boots have a very snug fit.
Leo Messi will wear the newly designed Messi15 boots for the first time in the UEFA Champions League game against Roma on 16th September.
