Celebrating what is being dubbed as the reinvention of the role of the number 10, adidas have collaborated once more with the pinnacle of world football in Lionel Messi for a super limited edition boot.

The sharpest colourway for the Messi 15.1 to date, it's a design that punches flair onto the feet of a player who is in search of his fifth Ballon d'Or win. A player who has made an unprecedented impact on the game, the 'Messi 10/10' is limited to just 100 pairs that will be produced - 89 of which will go on sale. The remainder; 1 to the player himself and the remaining 10 going to those others who feature in the Backed by Messi campaign.

Dropping on 10th October, it is a release that kicks off a new tradition of collector's edition Messi launches that will take place regularly on that date. Available exclusively from the adidas store in Barcelona, each pair will come with an embossed premium leather tag featuring the serial number for that pair within the 100 made, the first time adidas have released a boot with this unique identifying mark. Smart.

A gamechanger of truly bespoke preportions, the boots match a character of title taking prowess - his iconic shirt number set on the heel in real metallic gold with the upper of the boot is a premium black with the unique Team Messi logo embossed across the forefoot. It's all about the finer detail - the signature MessiFRAME and GAMETRAX are picked out in electroplated gold and deep red, embodying the eloquently luxurious football for which Messi has created his name. The collector’s boots will only be available in an exact replica of Messi’s size: 8.5.
