Gold is for winners, platinum is for the greatest.
The celebration of Leo Messi as football's GOAT continues witha special platinum boot to commemorate his record fifth Ballon d'Or award.
The signature Messi 15 boot will feature real platinum elements, something that has never been done before, all in honor of the ultimate creator.
Based on the current in-line Messi15 model and uses pearlescent Argentinian premium leather, the platinum boot design is enhanced with pure metallic platinum elements. The Messi logo and the adidas logo are both made out of real platinum, and the back of the boot is embossed with four gold and one platinum embellished dots to commemorate Messi’s record haul of Ballon d’Or titles. The Spanish phrase found on the insole of the boot “el más grande de todos los tiempos” means “the greatest of all time."
As the face of the new "I'm here to create" campaign, Messi winning another awardand cementing himself as the greatest of all time only makes his legacy even bigger.
