adidas 25 Years of Predator Trainers
Yesterday, adidas went full classic on the world by introducing their limited-edition Predator Accelerators and Precisions: good-looking, modern versions of both the navy-and-gold Zinedine Zidane Preds plus the white-with-red David Beckham classics.
Back in the early 2000s, Zizou and Golden Balls were running the game. The Galacticos of Real Madrid were formed during the presidency of Florentino Perez, and Zidane and Beckham were arguably the prime icons – still to this day they’re the top dogs.
Alongside the release of the Accelerator and Precision Predators, these outdoor classics pay homage to some magical moments in football history.
Whether it’s Zidane’s volley at Hampden Park in the ’02 Champions League Final or Beckham’s last minute free-kick at Old Trafford to secure World Cup qualification for England in 2002, truly iconic moments in world football can now be worn on the streets.
Bound for an indoor five-a-side court or aiming to be the style icon in your football team, the instantly recognisable Predator tongue ensures you represent more than just style.
These Precision and Accelerator remakes allow you to go back in time. Especially with the fold-down tongues, both trainers certainly flood back fond memories. The famous three stripes running down the side of the trainer are eye-popping, silver and gold seem the way forward for both the Precision and Accelerator.
Once you’ve become the main talking point on the pitch, both in terms of talent (of course) and style, you’ll then want to socialise in these fundamental ‘must-have’ TR’s.
