Today 3-time FIFA World Player of the Year, Lionel Messi will debut the almost weightless 5.8 ounce adizero F50 today in his UEFA Champions League match.

The updated adizero F50 features a new textured and synthetic Sprintskin upper designed to work exceptionally in all weather conditions.  This material wicks away water and the elevated ridge patterning lets water slide off the cleat rather than be absorbed, keeping the foot dry and the cleat light even in heavy rain.  The cleat’s Sprintframe adds support to the heel for stability in cuts and acceleration while a new internal Sprintweb provides exceptional ball control at high speeds and a supple but stable construction for ease of lateral movement.

Messi will wear the new adizero F50 exclusively until later this month when top international players Dani Alves, Karim Benzema, David Silva and David Villa lace up the new cleat. The adizero F50’s bold Vivid Yellow/Black/Green Zest colorway is inspired by the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Pre-order the shoe now straight from adidas.
