Messi Wears One of a Kind Custom Adidas Nemeziz Boots

Update: A brand new picture shared by his club Barcelona yesterday gives us one of the best looks yet at Lionel Messi's custom Adidas Nemeziz boots. Instead of the regular one-piece upper, Messi's cleats feature a 'burrito tongue' that's connected to the upper of the shoe on one side only.

A new picture reveals that Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi is wearing modified football boots and not the cleats that you can buy. Before the picture emerged, it was believed that Messi would wear non-modified Adidas Nemeziz 17.1 boots.

Leo Messi ReceivWears Modified Adidas Nemeziz Cleats

Here is the picture that reveals that Messi's Adidas Nemeziz Pyro Storm bots are different to those you can buy.

Lionel Messi's Adidas Nemeziz 17.1 Pyro Storm football boots feature a modified tongue construction. Whereas the Adidas Nemeziz 17.1 football boot introduced an all-new 'Dual Lock collar construction' for ankle stability and increased lockdown, Messi's custom boot has a tongue construction that seems to be the same as the one of the discontinued Messi-exclusive signature boot.

However, while the tongue construction of Messi's custom Adidas Nemeziz boots is totally different to the one of the standard cleats, the upper material and all other elements of the cleat are identical to the regular Adidas Nemeziz 17.1.
