World’s best footballer and FIFA Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi has been presented with unique platinum boots as sponsors, Adidas celebrate ‘the greatest of all time.’
Lionel Messi has been photographed with his five Ballon d’Or golden trophies in his house.
The Barcelona superstar who was crowned the world’s best player for the 5th time at a ceremony in Zurich on Monday, now has a pair of platinum boots to go alongside his new gold Ballon d’Or trophy after being celebrated as ‘the greatest player of all time’ by adidas.
After scoring 52 goals for club and country in 2015, Messi’s incredible achievements have been recognised by his sponsors with some precious footwear.
Based on the current Messi 15 model, adidas have created a design featuring real platinum elements which have never been seen before on a football boot.
The back has four gold dots and one platinum dot to signify Messi’s record haul of five Ballon d’Or trophies, while a Spanish phrase translating as ‘the greatest of all time’ is printed on the sole of the right boot.
Both the Messi and adidas logos are made from real platinum, which is another nod to Messi not just being a winner, but the greatest player on the planet.
