Leo Messi himself has joined the likes of Marcelo and Mo Salah in switching to the still unreleased Energy Mode pack / World Cup collection. Today, he shared a picture of his custom pair of Nemeziz Messi 18 cleats.

Messi's Nemeziz 18 boots are not quite like the pair that'll be available to buy in stores shortly. Similar to what Adidas did with the Nemeziz Messi 17, Messi's very own Nemeziz 18 football boots have a 'burrito tongue' instead of the usual one-piece upper construction.

Apart from that, they come with a number of personalization features on the heel. For example, the name and birth date of Messi's son Mateo is printed on the instep rear of the left shoe, while the name of his wife, Antonella, and his shirt number take the same place on the right.
