Adidas birthday boot for Lionel Messi

Adidas announced it has created special cleats to celebrate Argentinian soccer player Lionel Messi’s birthday today. For his part, the 27-year-old soccer star is scheduled to wear the rainbow-colored boots at training today ahead of his team’s final group game against Nigeria on Wednesday.

While much has been made about the ever-growing goal count in the first-round matches, the cleats sending those balls to back of the nets have become a focal point, too.
