It was a release we were expecting; adidas has launched the first signature Nemeziz colorway for Lionel Messi. Given his transition from Purechaos to Nemeziz, it was always going to happen that the three-stripe would create a version of agility focused boot for King Messi alone.
But, there is more than just a signature colorway on offer here. Everything about the boot has been modified to Messi’s expectations. For example, the upper features the same Agilityknit 1.0 forefoot found on the MESSI16+ series. The same is true underfoot, where the soleplate features a modified Gambetrax soleplate to suit Messi’s wishes, the same one also found on the MESSI16+.
In typical adidas x Messi fashion, the elite level Nemeziz 17+ 360Agility ($319.99) is the boot being used for promotions. But we all know Messi loves his laced version, thus the Nemeziz 17.1 ($224.99) is the boot you will see him wearing.
