Adidas and Lionel Messi’s Epic Collaboration on Inter Miami CF-Inspired Samba Sneakers!

Lionel Messi‘s popularity extends far beyond the football field, as evidenced by his soaring merchandise sales. Despite his late-season move to Inter Miami, owned by David Beckham, Messi’s debut American jersey quickly rose to the top spot as the best-selling soccer jersey in the MLS for 2023.

Recent reports indicate that Messi’s Miami jersey has now become the best-selling sports jersey overall, underscoring his unmatched appeal. Capitalizing on this success, Adidas is eager to further leverage Messi’s massive fan base by introducing a line of signature Samba sneakers. The Lionel Messi x Adidas Samba Indoor “Inter Miami FC” sneakers are poised to hit the United States market following a successful international launch. These special edition sneakers will be available in two color schemes.

The “Away Kit” edition features a sleek black Samba with a gum sole, highlighted by vibrant pink accents on the heel and stripes. Conversely, the “Home Kit” edition switches up the colors, predominantly pink with black accents—a design likely to resonate with fans of Messi’s iconic Inter Miami jersey. With its stylish pastel aesthetic, this version is expected to be a popular choice for summer outfits.

For those eager to get their hands on a pair before the US release, StockX offers an option, with some European sneaker enthusiasts already listing the shoes for sale. Available worldwide, the Lionel Messi x Adidas Samba Indoor “Inter Miami CF Home Kit” and “Away Kit” colorways are priced at $128 USD for men’s sizes, allowing fans to own a piece of soccer history.
