Adidas 'Elite Players' Icon Graphic Tees Released - Beckham, Messi, Salah & Son

Addias have released a new set of icon graphic tees celebrating some of the best players signed to the Three Stripes. Photos come courtesy of Thai football shop @footballari.

Beckham, Messi, Salah and Son Adidas Icon Tees

Check out the t-shirts below.

The set contains four black crew neck tees and the players honoured are David Beckham, Lionel Messi, Mohamed Salah and Heung-Min Son, which means that Europe, South America, Africa and Asia are represented in the collection. The tees have the Adidas logo on the right of the chest and a graphic of the players’ faces on the right. The graphic is designed to look like it has been made using strips of tape, with bright colours used and a slight pixelated effect also present. The back of the shirts contain the players’ name and shirt number, again using the tape effect.

Messi Icon Tees

Adidas' main man Lionel Messi has two t-shirts dedicated to him, one in the same basic style as all of the others, an another with a much larger graphic of his face on the front. The back of both shirts are the same, with sky blue used for his name and number 10, representing his country's colours.

Salah Icon Tee

The Salah tee uses a dark shade of green for the Adidas logo as well as his name and number 11 which he wears for club and country. There is no obvious reason for the choice of this colour.

Son Icon Tee

A vivid shade of pink is used for the details on the Son t-shirt, similar to the lighter shade which features in the gradient effect on the current South Korea home shirt.


The only retired player featured. The number 23, which the Englishman first wore when he joined Real Madrid, is coloured white, as is the lettering of his name and the Adidas logo on the front.
