Up Close – MESSI16+ Pureagility “Red Limit”

Red Limit MESSI16 Pureagility

If you’ve been watching Lionel Messi taking sick free kicks of late, you will have noticed the extremely crisp Red/White boots he has on his feet. In a slightly unusual move, Messi has been wearing a modified pair of 16.1 and not the ones branded as his “signature boots”. His signature boots would be the Messi16 Pureagility, a boot created with a focus on speed and agility, to suit the unique playing style of the five time Ballon d’Or winner.

Because of personal preference, he hasn’t been wearing the Pureagility. That is his decision and there is sure to be a logical reason behind it. But that isn’t taking anything away from these, an absolute quality boot that mesh comfort with performance in a top tier package. And since a pair arrived in, we wanted to give you an up close look in case you are considering a pair.

Visually, the Messi16 Pureagility offers a perfect winter look with a blast of snow placed around the bottom layer of the upper. Coupled with the crisp red upper, it provides an unmistakable look.

In terms of performance, AGILITYKNIT is the pinnacle of weight and strength and offers zero wear-in time. The PURECUT internal lacing system works in sync with the heel lining, delivering uncompromising fit and unstoppable agility. An innovative new SPRINTFRAME supplies stability and traction at the lightest possible weight, offering an improved aerodynamic finish. The reason these boots earn the agility tag lies in the soleplate and stud configuration. adidas has designed them to be very dynamic, ideal for quick cuts and turns. Exactly what you’d expect from a Messi boot. And of course they do also feature laces, even though you don’t see them in images. They tuck in under the front cover once the they are tied.

Upper: Agilityknit with PureCut sock system.
Retail: $299.99
