In fact, he did not play against Real Madrid in their own colours, despite being presented with these boots for winning the Ballon d’Or for the third time in a row.
The gold F50s were debuted by Messi last 15 January during the La Liga match against Real Betis Balompie at the Camp Nou, which Barça won 4 – 2.
Instead, Messi opted for the striking Prime Blue / Core Energy / White colourway of the leather F50 adiZero II by adidas.
These football boots by the German brand seem to be inspired by Superman, whilst being a perfect match for the famous “blaugrana” of Barcelona.
Note that Messi failed to score yesterday as his side came from behind to claim victory in the Copa del Rey quarter final first leg.
Tell us which of Messi’s boots you like best, and whether you would be ready to play against your rivals in their own colours !
