Lionel Messi has received his next on-pitch colourway from the self-titled signature Nemeziz Messi 18.1 series. The Barcelona man will switch into his new design when the domestic fixtures continue after the current international break, of which Messi is not a part of. 

Whereas the rest of the adidas "Initiator Pack" sticks to a black, white and red colour combination, the Messi series is different because, well, he's different. The Three Stripes have dropped a tasty trio of blue, red and yellow on the laces silhouette, and can we compare it to a Fruit Pastilles ice-lolly? Too late, we just have.


Taking hues from the Barcelona home shirt, adidas have whipped up a familiar palette for their leading man, which is finished off with a splash of yellow on the heel. Messi will switch into the latest drop in time for his side's La Liga away game at Atletico Madrid and for the next round of Champions League group games when Barca travel to PSV.
