adidas has released a new "solar gold" colorway for its adizero F50 FG Messi soccer cleat, "a monument to every goal, record and trophy (Lionel) Messi has won in his career to date."
Designed to perfectly complement Messi's sensational game, the cleat features a HYBRIDTOUCH synthetic leather upper and DRIBBLETEX, "a raised 3D texture that facilitates more ball contact and grip in every touch." The design also includes lots of words (in Spanish) to describe Messi, such as "speed" and "respect." The insole of the cleat displays the words "más que un botín" ("more than a boot") and the heel features the "Team Messi" logo.
The gold colorway is fitting for the conquering Messi, who has won three FIFA Ballon d'Ors, three European Golden Shoes, three La Liga Player of the Year awards and a World Cup Golden Ball. Messi has also led FC Barcelona to six La Liga Championships and three UEFA Champions League titles. However, a certain golden trophy has long eluded him.
Messi will wear the new cleats in La Liga action this season, and you can grab the new-look adizero F50 FG Messi soccer cleats at adidas.com for $230.
