Closer Look | Messi Trains in Never-Seen-Before Nemeziz Signature Boots

Update: We have come across better pictures of Messi's custom version of the Adidas Nemeziz 17.1 Dust Storm launch boots. Messi is set to debut the Adidas Nemeziz 17.1 Dust Storm 'Messi Edition' in tomorrow's Copa del Rey final against Deportivo Alavés.


Although Adidas has a special-edition colorway lined up, it looks like Lionel Messi will debut the brand's all-new Nemeziz football boot in another, never-seen-before makeup this weekend. Messi and Barcelona will take on Alavés in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday.

Messi Shows Off Custom Nemeziz Signature Boots

Check out one of the pictures from the training session below.



Based on the regular "Dust Storm" colorway of the Nemeziz 17.1, featuring a white-black upper with bright yellow detailing, Messi's boots have a key difference.



The so-called 360 Agility Bandage, which goes all around the upper and draws inspiration from medical tape, boasts Messi's name and logo - the standard edition sees a more obscure Nemeziz writing in this place instead.



With Messi wearing them in training like this, it would be a big surprise to see him lace up in any other boot this weekend. However, this special colorway is a first even for us and most likely a player exclusive, meaning it won't go on sale like the other ones.
