This past week, we have seen more of what makes Lionel Messi one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Argentina defeated Italy 3-0 in the Finalissima with Messi bagging 2 important assists. Then, he put on a show by scoring 5 goals in the game vs Estonia today. He put on a master clinic! This takes his tally to 86 goals in 162 international appearances
Of course, it is ironic that we just got done featuring the Speedflow “Mi Historia”, and the following day Messi creates more history in the latest Speedflow colorway! But, we live in the moment and can enjoy everything that he has to offer, while we still have the opportunity to watch him play.
The latest colorway – Diamond Edge – seems to coexist perfectly with the current Argentina home kit. Officially listed as Cloud White/Legacy Indigo/Sky Rush, this could be the best colorway in the series to date. That blue transition that starts around the knot ankle collar and transitions under the lacing and down through the front of the boot is flawless, creating a very dynamic visual cue. It is clean, simple yet extremely cool.
X Speedflow redefines the concepts of speed, with the latest generation designed to enhance key elements of playing fast soccer; acceleration, agility and instinct. 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.
