Barcelona’s star Lionel Messi has a new pair of designer ankle boots, perhaps his most striking custom model to date.
The Nemeziz Messi.1, aka “King of the Ball,” are a dazzling celebration of another year of unprecedented success for the number 10. During the 2020-21 campaign, Messi not only became the top scorer in football history association with the same club, but also broke Xavi’s record for appearances with Barcelona (767).
So are the exclusive adidas Nemeziz designed for LEO MESSI 🟠⚫️🟡

The “King of the Ball” boot graphic features a geometric mesh of Messi’s personal logo in red, orange and black, creating crisp zigzags inspired by the famous dribbles of the Barça forward.
Available now, Messi has worn the boots on the court in recent weeks, most notably during his team’s 6-1 away win over Real Sociedad, in which the Argentine star scored two goals and assisted yet another.
We can’t promise you the new Nemeziz will make you play like Messi, but at least you’ll know that everyone will turn their heads when you kick another wayward shot straight into the live fence.
And for those who are not interested in wearing shoes with such flashy colors, Adidas has thrown a ball with the same design to complement the boots.
I don’t think players have to spend too much time looking for it. And, literally, no one will be able to make the excuse, “guys, I never saw it.”
