adidas has unveiled the new boots that will be worn by the world’s best player, Lionel Messi. The new Pibe de Barr10 is inspired by the Barrio of Las Heras, Rosario, where Messi learned to play the beautiful game.
2015, much like every year it seems, has so far has belonged to Leo Messi. He’s so far scored a measly 43 goals in 39 games for FC Barcelona. No player in any major league has scored more goals than the Argentinian.
The new Pibe de Barr10 were designed in collaboration with Rosario-born graphic artist Ignacio Valenti in a style that pays tribute to Messi’s childhood. Fusing urban-inspired raw brush strokes with polished sleekness on the synthetic hybrid touch upper, the Pibe de Barr10 embodies Leo Messi’s footballing style; beautiful, yet dangerous.
The Pibe de Barr10 contain the latest product innovations demanded by the best in the world. The speed traxion stud alignment and outsole are modeled on sprinters’ spikes, to provide the speed and agility to dominate on the pitch. 360˚ DRIBBLETEX coating provides for unprecedented control – in wet or dry conditions, the ball will stick like glue.
Speaking about his new signature boots, Leo Messi said: “I did leave Rosario when I was young, but I still have my people, my neighborhood, and my favorite spots. Pibe de Barr10 have a lot to do with my life, my childhood and a lot to do with me.”
The world’s best player Leo Messi will wear the new Pibe de Barr10 from Wednesday the 18th March when Barcelona take on Manchester City in the Champions League. The boots will available to purchase the following day.
