words // Adam Arthur

On and off the field, Lionel Messi is a global representative of the world’s most popular game. His humble approach, admirable work ethic, and genius skillset have helped him reach superstar status and be considered one of the game’s greatest players. With its new signature Messi collection, adidas connects the Barcelona star’s bright personality, passion for the game, and on-field abilities to high-quality, pro-level soccer gear.

Starting from the feet up, the Messi collection features colorful updates to adidas’ newest soccer cleats and turf and indoor shoes. The adidas F50 Messi adiZero TRX FG blends an unbelievably lightweight design (5.3 oz.) with innovative technology, helping players display their dynamic skillset on firm ground. To perfect this cleat, adidas worked closely with Messi, who helped develop and test the boot, to ensure that it reflects him as a person and helps him perform at his best for 90 minutes. The on-field cleat also releases in less technical versions (available in men’s, grade school, and preschool sizes) that are great for young or entry-level players. In addition, signature indoor- and turf-specific shoes, like the adidas F10 Messi IN and adidas FreeFootball X-ITE Messi, help players excel on artificial surfaces.

adidas Messi Shoes

For players who want a complete head-to-toe look and the gear to match, adidas is bringing Messi’s signature style to t-shirts, shorts, soccer balls, socks, and shinguards – all of which feature the bright, Brazil-inspired colors seen on the cleats and shoes. The training t-shirt and shorts offer a great combination of technology: ClimaLite fabric that helps players stay cool and dry and TechFit bands that enhance movement and mobility. To complete the collection, soccer balls, shinguards, and socks offer Messi’s signature style and a high-quality design to help players prepare to win and perform at their best.

words // Brandon Richard

After launching earlier this year, the signature adidas soccer cleats of FC Barcelona’s Leo Messi are now available in an eye-catching new “Turbo” colorway.

Already being worn on the pitch by the four-time reigning FIFA Player of the Year, this version of the adidas F50 Messi adizero TRX features a Turbo and Blast Purple single-layer SprintSkin upper, flanked by silver and black 3-Stripes branding. Personalized elements include “MESSI” lettering on the medial side panel and Messi’s official logo on the heel.

Additionally, the cleat’s SprintFrame construction uses geometrical research and TRAXION 2.0 stud configuration to offer balance between lightweight and stability. For athletes who’d like to track their performance, the F50 Messi adizero is miCoach compatible.

Messi’s signature cleat has also been produced in different styles to accommodate those who play on different surfaces. The F30 Messi TRX acts as somewhat of a takedown and features featherweight Sigma construction, while the F10 Messi TRX TF is playable on the turf and the F10 Messi IN can be worn indoors.

Before it’s officially released next month, pre-order your “Turbo” Messi cleats here today.
