Getting some fresh kicks for the season run in, adidas launch the Nemeziz Messi.1, named Rey del Balon to celebrate the greatest the game has ever seen. Messi himself has already been wearing the boots, lacing them up over the last couple of weeks.
Having been seen playing in it in recent weeks, adidas officially launch the latest signature edition Nemeziz colourway and name for their star man, Lionel Messi. ‘Rey del Balon’, as it is known, translates to ‘King of the ball’, a fitting description for Messi in a season where he continues to break record after record, including becoming the highest goalscorer for a single club; a record that will likely never be broken.
Along with the eye-catching “Solar Red/Core Black/Solar Yellow” colourway and graphic, the ‘Rey del Balon’ comes with personalised embellishment details for Messi, with two medial logos on the boot – one Gold Welded crown logo and Messi’s signature logo in Solar Yellow. Tech-wise, the V-shaped Tension Tape collar offers a perfect wrap around the ankle, with a revolutionary upper construction. The split outsole and Torsion System technology allows for extreme torsional movements while maintaining balance.
