James Wilson Debuts Adidas Messi Boots

Manchester United forward James Wilson, possibly the most well-known member of the 'Backed by Messi' initiative, finally debuted the name-giving Adidas Messi football boots, lacing up in the White / Prime Blue Adidas Messi 15.1 cleats launched in early September.

Honoring Leo Messi's status as the best football player of at least his generation, Adidas revealed the Adidas Messi 15.1 cleats earlier this year, making them the first-ever Adidas football boot silo wholly dedicated to a single player.

The Adidas Messi 2015 soccer cleats boast a synthetic upper with an eye-catching external cage, branded messiFRAME, to stabilize things around the heel. Additionally, they boast a pretty straightforward speed soleplate, making the Adidas Messi boots an excellent alternative for attacking players and a great fit for the selection of young stars backed in the Team Messi campaign.

They aren't a bad look, too, which is why it's great to see more players and promising talents sporting these unique boots, especially in a time where Messi himself is absent from the pitch due to injury.
