Notes - Pro-level boots produced by Adidas in 2013 from their famous F50 Adizero silo, designed specially for 2012 Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi. These boots come with an ultra-thin synthetic upper on a 'Sprintframe' chassis to provide a glove-like fit and lightweight feel when moving at speed. The forefront of the boot uses 'Sprintweb' design with fine tuned synthetic ridges designed to improve traction between the ball and foot for optimal dribbling. The outsole features miCoach compatibility allowing for a miCoach chip to be slotted beneath the interchangeable insoles for complete performance analysis. The soleplate is made up of a firm ground configuration consisting of 11 plastic studs, suitable for use on firm ground surfaces. Lionel Messi wore this model during the 2012/13 season, including the Champions League second round against AC Milan where Barcelona made history being the first team to ever progress in the competition after being 2-0 down from a first leg without the use of an away goal.
