Adidas Messi 16 Overview - 16+ vs 16.1 vs 16.2 vs 16.3 vs 16.4

Following our in-depth overview of the X 16, let's take a closer look at the other Adidas boot that saw a new generation released a few weeks back - the Adidas Messi.

Adidas Messi 16+ PureAgility

The Adidas Messi 16+ PureAgility is the most expensive model of the Adidas Messi 2016 range. It features a lace-cover construction that is very similar to that of the Adidas X 16+ PureChaos.

Adidas Messi 16.1

Boasting a more traditional, albeit shifted lacing system, the Adidas Messi 16.1 football boots are otherwise akin to the 16+ PureAgility, with even Lionel Messi himself apparently preferring this version.

Adidas Messi 16.2

Next in line is the Adidas Messi 16.2, retailing at $130. It comes with a similar upper, although the rear and parts of the sole plate construction appear different than on the two higher-priced models.

Adidas Messi 16.3

The Adidas Messi 16.3 soccer cleats include a different upper, even in terms of design.

Adidas Messi 16.4
