Adidas have developed a habit for remaking classic Predator football boots and we are not getting tired of it one bit.
That fold-over tongue is probably the single most important feature in football boot history and it has been reproduced on a number of occasions by the German sportswear giant.
In 2017, the godly Predator Precision boots were adapted and re-released in the blue and grey colourway and they went down a treat.
But now, as per Footy Headlines, it’s emerged that David Beckham’s sacred shoes are getting remade in red, white and silver.
The uber reliable website for football gear news have posted just a single image of the soon-to-be-released cleats and it’s enough for us to want to spend all our money on a pair and wear them about town.
The original iconic boots were released for Euro 2000, where Zinedine Zidane wore them with distinction by guiding France to another international tournament triumph two years after their World Cup win on home soil.
However, there’s no denying that Beckham is the player most synonymous with the worldie boots. In fact, his stunning last-gasp free-kick against Greece at Old Trafford to seal qualification to the 2002 World Cup was scored in the white Predator Precisions.
Already you just know that demand for these boots will be insane once they hit the stores, with Beckham slated to be centre of the marketing campaign once again. After all, he is ‘Mr Predator’.
The news follows on from Adidas dropping a re-mastered version of the classic black and red Accelerator boots back in August. To the surprise of no-one, they went down an absolute treat.
Time to get practicing those free-kicks so you can bend it like Beckham…
