Ahead of April’s Copa del Rey final against Cristiano Ronaldo and archrival Real Madrid, Barcelona striker Lionel Messi is set to get a brand new set of signature boots from adidas: the F50 adizero TRX FG Messi. Donned by the Argentinian international yesterday on the pitch for the first time – a 2-0 defeat of Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 that saw Messi tally his 66th career Champions League goal, putting him just five goals shy off all-time leader, Raul – the new boots are among the lightest in the game and boast a sleek combination of green, blue, pink, orange and white across their featherweight HYBRIDTOUCH synthetic leather upper. Additional details include DRIBBLETEX 3D grip texture for more ball contact, SPRINTFRAME stability, and a new stud configuration on a TRAXION FG outsole for superior speed on firm ground. Retailing for $230 USD, the F50 adizero TRX FG Messi can be pre-ordered now online ahead of its March 1 release.
