Lionel Messi x adidas Originals - Samba


Paying tribute to adidas Originals brand ambassadors from the worlds of sport and entertainment, the Legacy of Craftsmanship series features classic silhouettes refashioned by legendary adidas designer Markus Thaler and a new generation of design talent from the Trefoil brand. In addition to the Snoop Dogg Pro Shell, the limited run of hand-made sneakers includes a Samba model inspired by Argentine soccer god Lionel Messi. Under the guidance of Markus Thaler, adidas Originals designer Vincent Etcheverry created a clean, low-profile shoe dressed in the colors of the Argentina national football team. Features include a white leather base and grey suede toe overlay, complemented with Argentina blue accenting and Messi branding at the heel and along the sidewalls. A stitched Argentina patch on the insoles finishes the look. Check out detailed looks in the gallery below.
