Everything about the adidas Messi15.1 is completely to the specifications of the legendary Argentinian himself. The boot has been very received by many, but since the only player we have seen wearing it on the pitch is Messi, we haven’t seen much of it. That changes now, because Lionel Messi has backed a handful of young adidas athletes to prove themselves worthy of wearing his boots.

A pair of the adidas Messi15.1 has been handed out to some of adidas’ best young players, as they look to reach the same heights as arguably the best player in the history of football. It’s definitely no easy task, but now they will have the same tools for the job as Messi himself.

The lucky few, who will be making lots of other professionals very envious are Bentivegna (Palermo), Cornet (Lyon), Rony Lopes (Monaco), Miranchuk (Lokomotiv Moscow), Zardes (LA Galaxy) and Timo Werner (Stuttgart), as well as Kenedy and Jeremie Boga (Chelsea).

You can join the Messi15.1 team too and find the boots here.

There are definitely some very promising talents in and among them and it will be very cool to see the new boots get some more on pitch action, because especially with the new colourway, it’s a boot that deserves it.

Lionel Messi’s chosen few, who are all ready to prove that they too can #BeTheDifference. Will you be joining Zardes and the gang in the new boots?
