With four Ballon d’Or awards to his name, it’s hard to argue that Lionel Messi is not the greatest number 10 in the history of football

To celebrate his impact on the beautiful game, adidas Football has announced the Messi 10/10, a super limited edition boot with just 100 pairs produced worldwide.

The release marks the start of a new tradition of collector’s edition Messi boot launches, which will drop every October 10th.


For fans looking to get their hands on one of adidas’ most desirable releases ever, 89 of the 100 pairs will be on sale for one day only, on October 10th, exclusively at the adidas store in Barcelona.

Each pair, only available in Messi’s size (8.5), will come with an embossed premium leather tag featuring the serial number for that pair within the 100 made, the first time adidas Football has released a boot with this unique identifying mark.

Of the remaining 11 pairs produced worldwide, one pair will go to the Argentine maestro and the other 10 will be sent to the players recently named as the members of the adidas Backed by Messi campaign.
