Leo Messi debuted his latest signature boot in style this week, scoring in PSG’s 2-0 win vs Man City. This is his first signature edition release in the adidas X Speedflow series, with this one getting the unique Messi.1 nametag. They are everything you’d expect from a boot designed specifically for one of the GOAT.
For those with an eye for design, the major feature of this release is the prominent “MESSI 100” graphic that repeats on the Victory Blue/Shock Pink/Solar Yellow upper colorway. It is a nod to the fact Messi is one of the greatest ever to play the game, one of the only players that could possibly reach a 100 in FIFA player ratings.
The new adidas X Speedflow redefines what it means to be fast with the latest generation designed to enhance key elements of playing fast soccer; acceleration, agility and instinct. The zero-distraction fit of X Speedflow helps players at every level – including Leo Messi – reach a new state of speedfulness.
The upper features a premium engineered lightweight PRIMEKNIT material that provides adaptive fit, designed for intuitive players that need to react quickly. Adidas has engineered an AgilityFrame support system that connects players with both the upper and soleplate of the boot. The lattice structure wraps the foot and provides lockdown and stability in every direction while staying as light as possible.
Underfoot, a Carbitex SpeedFrame outsole supports the foundation of fast play and movements of linear speed, with a carbon insert in the forefoot to enable explosive and instant transmission of power through the foot and on to the pitch.
