Adidas Mens Messi 15.2 Soccer Cleats
If you go the Adidas website and click on the link for the write-up on these shoes, the description is full of cool-sounding tech monikers with Messi's name slapped to the front of each one. The reason is because the Argentinian soccer great had an active hand in the creation and development of this shoe, tailored to his particular specs and preferences. The result is a pretty impressive shoe that puts the focus on touch and traction, first and foremost.
Adidas have given this soccer cleat an ultra-thin synthetic upper with a dimpled surface for better control at a faster rate of speed, with the dimples creating greater friction between shoe and ball on the fly. An external cage is wrapped around the shoe for improved stability and the soleplate has been outfitted with a cleat configuration that incorporates a collection of angled studs at the fore-foot and heel to grant you explosive speed and agility on both firm and artificial ground surfaces.
The Messi 15.2 is one step down from the Messi 15.1, which is nearly double the price. The differences are negligible which is why we feel you can save the extra dough and go with the 15.2. Here the upper is a bit stiffer than with the predecessor, so the break-in period is going to take longer and the stud plate is slightly different. But the comfort and performance are still top-notch, just like the more expensive version.
