Set to debut tomorrow night against Manchester City these efforts from adidas are certainly memorable.

Tomorrow night's big Champions League clash between Manchester City and Barcelona at the Etihad should be a cracker. City have been sensational goal scoring machines on home turf while the Spaniards are finally hitting their best form.

This renewed excellence by Barca is inspired, unsurprisingly, by the return to full fitness of Lionel Messi. After an eight-week lay off, the Argentinian returned to action in mid January and in his last three games he has shown the sort of form we expect from the little genius.

With five goals in his last three games, he will arrive to face City in the mood to kill the game off in the first leg, and tracking him will be a huge task for the Citizens defenders.

One thing that may help them a little, though, will be the garishly coloured boots Messi will be wearing. Adidas have designed a very special pair of adizero f50's for the wee man and he will wear them for the first time tomorrow.

Mainly white, they also feature every other colour under the sun, and horizontal, rather than vertical, three stripes.

In fairness, Messi could play in wellies and still be brilliant.
