There is little room for debate that Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona, and the Argentina national team, is one of, if not the best player in the history of the game. Outside of his famous footwork on the pitch, he’s also been the face of adidas Soccer, wearing some of the most sought after soccer cleats to be created in recent years.
With the upcoming Copa América tournament being hosted by Argentina, adidas and Messi will be once again bringing out a creative version of the F50 adiZero. The Electricity based colorway, that is accented by Infrared and Sharp Purple Anodized details, is sure to stand out on the field as Messi looks to lead the Argentinian team in front of his home crowd to their 15th Copa América title, and their first since 1993. Also on the line, is bragging rights, as their neighboring competitors from Uruguay also have 14 Copa América titles. Although Messi and Argentina are one of the clear favorites, the competition is sure to be tough.
Although the tournament won’t begin until July 2nd, you can pre-order the Electricity colorway of the adidas F50 adiZero that Leo Messi will wear, along with other new colorways now.
