Adidas wrapped things up with Lionel Messi in Barcelona this week after 7 days of promotional touring for the adizero's. Adidas put together a great way for fans to not only get their hands on the lucrative adizero Prime's but to also meet some of their heroes.
The final speed event took place in Barcelona where 10 lucky
competition winners got to meet the worlds greatest player, Lionel
Messi, who will be making the hugely anticipated debut of the new
adizero Prime football boots this weekend.
Earlier in the week in London, as part of the adizero launch, adidas held a competition for people to try and find the 'stolen' footwear of Tottenham striker Jermaine Defoe and World Heptathlon Champion Jessica Ennis! Adidas challenged the public to find Jermain Defoe's boots and return them to him in person and also win a pair of signed boots for themselves!
