Leo Messi gets in on the "Spectral Mode" party as adidas supply their main man with a signature edition of the Nemeziz 18.1 silo. Wrapped in baby blue with exclusive Messi branding, this is the sort of treatment you get when you're better than everyone else. Seems fair.

The "Spectral Mode" collection lands as the brand's second on-pitch collection of the new season, replacing the "Team Mode" pack, and will make a Champions League debut this week as all of adidas' leading players switch into their new designs. That means PSV Eindhoven will be the team tasked with preventing Messi giving his "Ash Blue/Raw Grey" boots a scoring start as they visit the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.


The pale blue design is arguably the most pleasing to date from a somewhat underwhelming signature series. The Messi logo and branding hides within the all blue colourway and the boot features laces as per the Barcelona man's preference. No mid-collar either for Messi. Not that it matters, you could tie the laces together and he'd still find the net.
