Messi's latest signature cleats are a celebration of life in your mid-30s

He's been wearing them on the pitch for over a week now, but the new Lionel Messi cleats 2023 have finally dropped with adidas giving the World Cup winner his latest signatures — the X Speedportal Messi.1 "L10NEL M35SI" boots.

Who says you can't embrace the age of 35, when 40 is suddenly on the horizon and there's no turning back? Not Messi. He's giving us a bit of playfulness in "Solar Orange/Silver Metallic/Core Black." Adidas is probably supposed to be marketing at teens and 20-somethings, but they said screw it, let's do something for everyone in their mid-30s.

The cleats incorporate different elements of Messi's past signature boots, bringing it all together for some celebratory vibes coming off the crowning achievement of the GOAT's career.

The boots made their debut during PSG's Champions League last-16 first leg defeat to Bayern Munich, but they then helped Messi deliver a sublime free kick in the 95th-minute to give PSG a 4-3 victory over Lille in Ligue 1 play. 

Maybe they'll help you do such things. 

The cleats are on sale now on the adidas website and retailing for $280. There are also options for turf, indoor and children.

After returning from the World Cup, Messi was wearing a generic pair of X Speedportal.1 boots in "Shock Pink."
