Lionel Messi continues to build his legend, and his fifth Ballon D’Or is just another step of his seemingly limitless career, full of trophies and records. adidas celebrates his history with pure platinum colorway for his signature Messi 15 cleats.


“Gold is for winners, platinum is for the greatest”

This new colorway uses pearlescent Argentinian premium leather and pure platinum elements (the Messi and adidas logos are made of real platinum), while 5 dots are placed on the back heel: 4 gold and one platinum that represents his all-time record 5 Ballon D’Or wins.

The inside of the left shoe shows the same aforementioned five dots, while the right one has a message that reads “El más grande de todos los tiempos” (“The greatest of all time”). The tongue has a special tag that changes from the adidas logo to Lionel Messi’s face depending of the position.

Messi 15 cleats were specially designed for the Argentina and FC Barcelona superstar, with the player himself taking part of the creation process, resulting in one of the best cleats of 2015.

This release comes just one day after the launch of the “I’m here to create” campaign, that celebrates all the magic that Messi has brought to the soccer world since his debut back in 2004.
