Tie the laces together for all he cares, he'll still run rings around you. Lionel Messi's signature silo gets equipped with some external strings for a more traditional design ahead of the Copa America next month.

As with all adidas silos, the Messi signature has been hooked up with a 16.1 edition, a boot that we wouldn't be surprised to see the man himself wearing when Argentina get their campaign underway in the USA in June. Wrapped in Metallic Silver and Shock Blue, it's the perfect colourway to complement the Argentina home strip and the perfect boot for Messi to try and lift his first ever Copa America in.

Some description

Tech wise you're looking at the same SprintFrame as the 16+ PUREAGILITY and the AgilityKnit upper, also found on the top-end edition. Whisper it quietly but these might top the PUREAGILITY when it comes to straight up aesthetics, it just all looks a little less scary and little more slick.
