Adidas Messi 2016-2017 Space Dust Boots Released

The third colorway of the new Adidas Messi 16.1 football boots introduces a bold and eye-catching design to be worn exclusively by the Argentina and FC Barcelona superstar. Launched on October 11, 2016, the black and green Adidas Messi 16 cleats offer a more available alternative of sorts to the extremely limited 10/10 edition that sold out almost immediately yesterday.

Adidas unveiled the Adidas Messi 15.1, the Three Stripes' first-ever soccer boot silo exclusive to one player, in summer 2015. A year later, the brand reveals the second generation of the model, the Adidas Messi 16.

Adidas Messi 16.1 Space Dust - Dark Grey / Silver Metallic / Solar Green

This is the Adidas Messi 2016-17 cleats in black and green from the Space Dust collection.

Dubbed the Space Dust edition, the third Adidas Messi 16.1 football boots feature an eye-catching gradient that goes from a very dark grey at the top towards a striking green at the bottom. The iconic Adidas stripes on the outside heel, are colored in Silver Metallic.

Other brandings, such as the Adidas Performance logo at the heel are green, while the dark grey upper also includes a subtle spray pattern in green, and the sole plate of the Adidas Messi Space Dust boots is entirely of the eye-catching green color.

Tech-wise, the black and green Adidas Messi 16.1 Space Dust soccer cleats come with the same specifications as the previous two editions, launched for the Copa America and the start of the 2016-17 season, respectively. They have a textile Agilityknit upper and combine it with a traditional, low-cut ankle design.

Not only has the "MessiCage" of the first generation Adidas Messi cleats been removed, the second-generation Adidas Messi 2016-17 boots also come with a redesigned sole plate and stud configuration.

Released on October 11, 2016, the Dark Grey and Solar Green Adidas Messi 2016-2017 soccer boots retail at a price of $200 (€200, £175).
