Everything Lionel Messi does is on a different level. Anyone who has watched him knows he's different. Those who have played against him know it better, as do adidas. You don't get a signature silo for being average do you?
Completing the adidas "Turbocharge" pack in alternative style comes the MESSI 16+ Pureagility. Sitting away from the striking green colourway of the ACE 17+ Purecontrol and X 16+ Purechaos, the signature boot is dressed in a "Metallic Copper" wrap to differentiate it from the rest of the collection of which the name it shares. The fifth colourway from the signature Messi series arrives as adidas finally give in to resisting the golden temptation to coat his boots in a trophy-esque colour that represents his iconic status in football.
Messi will no doubt wear the 16.1 edition without the lace cover but the 16+ Pureagility comes equipped with all the usual fixtures and fittings; an Agilityknit upper, heeling lining and Sprintframe outsole, all sprayed in gold for a premium finish complimented by a black Purecut Sock System. If you want a pair of bespoke metallic signature boots then you need to win the Ballon d'Or... about five times. If you ain't up for that then you can borrow Lionels. He'll be wearing them from this weekend onwards as Barca chase a La Liga title.
