Lionel Messi is now a Copa America titlist and a World Cup champion. As such, you can now see pictures of Messi victorious not only in Blaugrana shirts but also in the La Albiceleste kits. And you can make the argument that he has reached that mythical status accorded by his nation to Diego Maradonna. Safe to say that his Argentinian identity is now part of his successful football reputation. With this as the backdrop, adidas has launched the Messi Infinito signature boots for the new-gen X Crazyfast….
As far as colourway is concerned, the Infinito has the Aeropacity Speedskin upper in metallic silver, always a nice colour symbolism for someone who have tons of silverware in his trophy cabinet! This then accented with the laces, branding and stripes in the light blue normally associated with Argentina football. The same shade of blue flows down to the Speedframe soleplate. The black knitted tongue and collar harmonise well with the upper profile.
Instead of the usual Crazyfast branding, adidas replaces it with the ‘MESSI’ wording on the sides of the heel, which also carries the superstar’s logo right at its centre.
