adidas Nemeziz Messi 17+ "Skystalker"

Leo Messi is better than you. That's why he gets his own signature boot collection. He's also better than every other professional player who wears the Nemeziz, that's why he gets the bespoke treatment. Arriving as his latest exclusive design, Messi will switch into the new "Skystalker" design throughout December.

Forming part of the complete "Skystalker Pack" alongside the X 17+, Predator 18+ and COPA 18.1, the Messi edition takes on an alternative design to that of the standard Nemeziz that other mere mortals will wear from this week onwards. Whereas the standard Nemeziz Skystalker is toned down with a darkened upper, Messi's new drop reverts back to the eccentric striped design that featured on the launch edition of the silo.

Bright "Solar Red" stripes fall back on a patterned "Tactile Gold" and black upper, with a jet black soleplate holding things up from the bottom. The Nemeziz branding on the AgilityBandages is replaced by 'MESSI' branding to complete the laceless look. Expect the man himself to wear the laced 17.1 versions when Barcelona host Celta Vigo on Saturday.
