Lionel Messi has received his own signature "Deadly Strike" Nemeziz to switch into for the remainder of the 2017/18 season. Because when you're better than everybody else you get stuff like this.

The adidas updates for spring 2018 have seen a combination of blues and greens submerge the four leading silos; the Predator, Nemeziz, X, and COPA. All of adidas' contracted players will wear them on pitch, apart from that man Messi who gets his own exclusive colourway complete with signature 'Messi' branding.

Of course, Messi will wear the laced 17.1 version which also drops as part of the "Deadly Strike" pack, a title fitting for a player with the most prolific of goalscoring records. In a similar colour-scheme to the new Predator 18+, the Nemeziz Messi 17+ uses a combination of "Unity Ink" and "Hi-Res Green" to deliver a punchy aesthetic. Want a pair with your own name on?
