adidas unveiled the signature adiZero F50 that Lionel Messi will be wearing exclusively in UEFA Champions League this season today.
Dubbed the adiZero F50 Blaugrana, this latest design takes cues from the architecture from the city of Barcelona and Messi’s incredible record of 67 goals and 2 winner’s medals in Europe’s most prestigious club competition.
As with all of Messi’s boots, adidas have made this boot unique by using a four panel design. The two panels towards the heel feature the iconic colors of Barcelona, while the front two are made up of “Earth Green” and “Neon Orange”.
The upper has been detailed in the same way as Messi’s last exclusive release and features various words that describe Messi. On the insole, adidas have printed the phrase “Más que un Botín” (more than a boot), an obvious nod to Barcelona’s famous motto, ‘More than a Club’.
The release of the adiZero F50 Blaugrana comes a little over a month after the unveiling of another exclusive Messi colorway, the adiZero F50 Messi Neon Orange.
Messi will be wearing the Neon Orange adiZero for all of Barcelona’s domestic affairs, while this Blaugrana colorway will be worn during UEFA Champions League clashes — the first of which is this Wednesday.
The adidas F50 adizero FG Messi (Neon Orange/Running White/Earth Green) is available at WorldSoccerShop.
