Ah yes, you have to enjoy those subtle hints before the release of a new boot! We are on the verge of meeting the all new adidas X506+, a remake of the original adidas f50.6 TUNiT that was originally released back in 2006. You might recall them as being the boot worn by Lionel Messi at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Earlier this week, we spotted an unusual throwback image that seemed to suggest they might be making a return. And we can confirm that they officially are as a limited collection release!
This latest version won’t have the TUNiT set-up in play, so it is just the boot rather than a skin and interchangeable stud configuration. They will, however, have the same tongue cover in play. Only this time, you can fully remove the cover down to the bottom lace eyelet, using Velcro to refasten it in place over the lacing system.
Stay tuned for more release details as they come in. What we do know right now is that they will be available exclusively next week at soccer.com.
For now, enjoy the unboxing video showing the boots that was recently posted in Instagram. They seem like the real deal and will give you an idea of what they are all about. Notice the X speed reference placed on the insole.
