Lionel Messi & The Electronic Shoe Revolution
What an informative photograph! Thanks, Leo. Image via sochuteiras.com.
Clearly, the most exciting thing about this photograph for most of the Kickette staff is that it not only offers a far more expansive view of Leo Messi’s ‘action’ than we’re used to, but we also get to speculate on how he achieves such smooth and supple skin on his calves and thighs.
However, our resident boot porn aficionado has broken free of her shackles once more, and advises us (through her gag, so it must be quite important) that the boots Leo is wearing here contain a very special microchip thingy that tracks player movement and will apparently revolutionize the game.
Cool. But do you think he uses depilatory cream? Wax? Or has he gone for the more permanent solution of electrolysis?
We should be told.
