At the time of writing Leo Messi has just scored 2 more wonder goals against Nigeria and has single-handedly helped Argentina to the top of the group.
This week saw Messi turn 27 and as a little thank you from adidas they gave him a pair of special edition football boots ahead of today's game. It took only 3 minutes of wearing his new boots before the opportunity fell to him and he delivered as only Messi can by rifling a strike into the top of the net.
Messi is already wearing the adizeroTM f50 Messi boots but these special edition boots have a colourful birthday pattern.
So how many pairs are out there and can you buy a pair?
Very unlikely, it’s reported that only 27 pairs have been made to represent the special 27 years of Messi’s life. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on one of these 27 pairs then you might want to pray for an Argentina World Cup Win and then hide the boots away for a few years. We would expect these boots to be hot property in the future, especially if Messi lifts the trophy wearing his special edition boots.
