Notes - Mid-range boots produced by Adidas in 2012 from their popular F50 speed silo but as a more affordable alternative to the top model. This eye-catching boot remains built for typical speed associated with the silo but with a genuine leather upper that offers the touch, comfort and durability preferred by many of leather compared to synthetic versions. The insole region has been anatomically shaped to improve comfort for longer, while asymmetrical lacing offers a slightly increased striking area off the laces for cleaner contact between foot and ball. Adidas have incorporated the use of long-serving 'miCoach' technology, allowing players to monitor their performance through the insertion of a miCoach chip under the insoles for high-level post-match analysis. The soleplate is a 'TRAXION 2.0' configuration made with 11 plastic studs to provide optimal traction on firm ground surfaces. This vivid yellow, black and green colourway was debuted by Lionel Messi in Barcelona's Champions League fixture with Celtic in November 2012. A night that would go down in history as the Catalan giants were stunned to a historic 2-1 defeat at Celtic Park thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt.
