The world class forward from Argentina Lionel Messi can be seen below playing during a friendly match between his Barcelona side and free-spending French club Paris Saint-Germain, played last 4 August at the Parisian Parc des Princes Stadium in Paris.
At first sight, we can immediately notice Messi in Barça’s new orange and yellow change strip for the 2012 – 2013 season, involving an array of bright colours that complements the Spanish giants’ vibrant and dazzling football.
This second kit is also a perfect match with the new and exclusive colourway that the German brand adidas has given to the Argentine superstar to kick off the upcoming season, with which he has also managed to score a goal for the Catalans in this exciting pre-season friendly.
Officially known as the Metallic Silver / Infrared colour scheme for the F50 adiZero IIs, it has been worn by Messi in his beloved full-grain calf leather edition, tipping the scales at a mere 175 g even due to the employment of the revolutionary SprintFrame outsole that reduces weight without compromising stability.
The Argentine maestro will be the only player in the world to wear this incarnation until 15 September, and from then onwards other pros like Benzema, Bale and Podolski might be spotted in these football boots too.
