Adidas honors Lionel Messi with the new golden F50 Triunfo Dorado

The limited edition Lionel Messi F50 Triunfo Dorado comes as the footballer looks to mark a milestone in his career.

Adidas, by unveiling this exciting new limited edition collaboration with Lionel Messi, has taken a step forward in cementing the brand’s place as a part of La Pulga’s history as he looks to make his mark in the United States tournament. Built with precision engineering for speed, agility, and comfort, Adidas has reawakened the F50 series with a boot that reflects fast football.

The boots will be worn by Lionel Messi this summer, which follows a history of trust placed in the brand by the GOAT. The name F50, which stands for Football 50, is a reference to the year 1954 when the West German national team brought home the World Cup.

Adidas X Lionel Messi golden shoes

These are the only F50 boots to carry some of the exact technical specifications unique to Lionel Messi, which are now available for fans to wear.

Adidas has gone the extra mile to tailor the closure of the ‘burrito’ style tongue to Mr. Messi’s preferred fit and has designed it to ensure maximum comfort employing the knit material. The Hybrid Touch upper revamps the newly introduced inline F50 with a synthetic suede and foil material with soft haptic support for vamp steadiness and comfort when playing in the field at speed.

Mirroring the other existing F50 releases, the boots rest on a Sprintframe 360 soleplate, specifically engineered to facilitate optimized stability and traction. The heel counter on the soleplate works in tandem with a stud configuration of rounded and bladed studs for foot stability at push-off, all working harmoniously to help enable multidirectional speed and acceleration.

The visual design of the Triunfo Dorado is derived from one of the franchise’s most signature footwear, the F50 Prime. The Prime was initially launched in 2014/15, a season known for Mr. Messi’s continued successes in the League, Cup, and UEFA Champions LeagueTM treble while breaking the all-time record for goals scored in the Spanish top division (43 in 38 appearances and 21 assists).

The gold colorway symbolizes Mr. Messi’s latest historic accolades on the global stage with Argentina and his position as the current champion of both the world and the Americas. He seems to be on a roll with a vision to build on these accomplishments with his nation once again this summer, where he will also break the record for most appearances at the tournament.

The Lionel Messi F50 Triunfo Dorado pack is available for purchase on Adidas websites.
