Adidas Launch Special 'El Retorno' Boot To Celebrate Legacy Of Lionel Messi And It's A Serious Throwback

Adidas are celebrating the legacy of Lionel Messi by launching a special edition +F30-inspired boot dubbed 'El Retorno'.

The new Adidas X Speedflow.1 have been inspired by one of the most wanted F50 colourways of all time - Tech Metallic Core Black and Intense Orange.

They are also modelled on the 2006 F30 Tunit boots worn by Messi during that 2007 Copa del Rey clash against Getafe, when he scored one of his most memorable goals. Remember that one?

These stunning cleats are also packed with Messi personalisation, with nods to unforgettable moments in his stellar career, as well as a MESSI + 10 logo on the tongue, the Argentina flag on the left and right sockliner and the iconic +F50 logo in Intense Orange on three-stripe branding.

A Carbitex Speedframe has been used to assist moments of propulsion and acceleration on the pitch, while a vacuum fit creates a super snug, perfect fit that supports explosive movement.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner will wear the celebration boots for the Copa America, which kicks off on 13th June.

Here's some of the reaction to Messi's new boots from social media.
