Most of his signature boots in 2023 are either about Argentina or his 2022 World Cup win. But now Lionel Messi is getting a signature that is related to his domestic football for the year. adidas now reveal the Messi Crazyfast Miami, a pair dedicated to the GOAT’s move to the MLS and signing with Inter Miami. With his linkup their with football legend David Beckham (himself an adidas football boot wearer back in his days) and how he raised his team’s performance with his own individual brilliance, it’s a Messi signature release already loaded with another football success story. Bienvenido a Miami, Messi!
As for the colourway, Messi Miami is straight-up influenced by ‘Miami Vice.’ That explains the aqua base and pinkish accents from the stripes (which had purplish fade toward the top) and the cursived ‘Messi’ branding on both sides of the quarter quarter. Making the brandings even more noticeable is the underlaying cyan panel covering that section of the boot. The Speedframe reflected the overall theme by going aqua on the rearfoot, having a pinkish transition on the middle and finishing it off with purple on the forefoot.
As a side note, yes, you are not mistaken! The picture above beside the official Messi Miami press image is the actual exclusive customised edition of the boot. It does look like, catering to their ultimate football superstar’s needs or preferences, that adidas has given him a synthetic leather or a pure leather upper to rock on on his pair of Miami Crazyfast boots.
