Adidas Platinum Messi 15

It came as no surprise when Argentine footballer, and Barcelona star, Lionel Messi won the 2015 Ballon D’Or award. Messi’s fifth trophy, a record in the sport, for being the best player in the world was very well-deserved, so adidas has taken the moment to honor their signature star with the announcement of the Platinum Messi 15.

The sports giant has presented Messi with a new platinum boot for the ultimate creator, containing real platinum elements, never seen before on a football/soccer boot. According to adidas, here are some of the design features that went into creating the Platinum Messi 15:

The platinum boot design is based on the current in-line Messi15 model and uses pearlescent Argentinian premium leather, enhanced with pure metallic platinum elements. The Messi logo and the adidas logo are both made out of real platinum, and the back of the boot is embossed with four gold and one platinum embellished dots to commemorate Messi’s record haul of Ballon d’Or titles. The Spanish phrase found on the insole of the boot “el más grande de todos los tiempos” means “the greatest of all time”.
