Check out the new Adidas X Speedflow.1 Messi soccer cleats in tech metallic core black / intense orange below.

The new X Speedflow Messi football boots from Adidas introduce a bold design in gold with a metallic sole plate. They are dubbed "El Retorno" (The Return).

The new Adidas X Speedflow.1 Messi football shoes pays homage to Messi's first boots with Adidas, the 2006 F30 Tunit - he famously he didn't wear the 'F50' top model back then. Messi's name is printed inside an orange box on the outside of the shoes while a new interpretation of the iconic "Teamgeist" logo can be seen on the tongue.

The colorway meanwhile is inspired by the boots he wore when he scored one of his best goals of all-time, dribbling past several opponents from the halfway line in a Copa del Rey match against Getafe in 2007.

In terms of tech, this is the first-ever colorway of the next-gen Adidas X Speedflow that is being released. The Speedflow is the successor of the Adidas X Ghosted.
