Notes - Elite-level boots from the adiZero F50 range, produced by Adidas as an early release in 2012. This version of the popular speed boot comes with a full-grain leather forefront to increase touch, while 'SPRINTWEB' technology improves ball traction while dribbling at speed. The F50 adiZero incorporates the use of Sprintframe technology in the outsole allowing for a glove-like fit that balances both speed and stability for optimal performance. The inclusion of TPU bands in the upper provides a more comfortable fitting boot, also aided by a foam-lined heel for improved protection. Adidas have incorporated the use of their miCoach system into the outsole, allowing for players to analyse and compare their performances through the use of a miCoach chip under the insoles. The soleplate supports an Adidas 'TRAXION' configuration that supports 11 plastic studs for use on firm ground surfaces. This blue, white and energy colourway was used during the 2011/12 La Liga campaign by Lionel Messi who netted 50 times that season. The Argentinian debuted the boot shortly after picking up his third consecutive Ballon d'Or award.
