Adidas reopens iconic football boots made popular by David Beckham

Adidas has launched a new version of its classic boots Predator Mania, in the combination of cream and red color used by footballer David Beckham at the 2002 World Cup.

The Predator Mania boot, coveted after being worn by Beckham, was relaunched by the German sportswear brand as part of its new "champagne pack". Its release coincides with the 42nd birthday of the football captain of England in England.

The Predator range has been a huge success for Adidas. It was first unveiled in 1994 and spawned 18 different models, including Mania, which has become a popular choice for footballers and professional amateurs from around the world.

The 2017 version of the Predator Mania champagne features a synthetic leather upper, rather than the kangaroo leather selected for the original design and a bright red tongue.

The classic asymmetrical strings of the boot have reached this iteration. The wearers are able to hide them carefully by tying the red tongue with an elastic strap attached.

Black signature rubber stamps Predator also make a comeback. They are placed on top of the boot to provide increased power and precision for football players.

Adidas has incorporated its SprintFrame technology - a lightweight chassis that provides stability - into the transparent outsole, which enhances the classic style to date with recent startup designs.

To accompany the re-launch of Predator Mania, Adidas has unveiled new matching versions of its Ace, Copa and X football boots, as well as Purecontrol Ultraboost, which features a superior Primeknit.

The Ace 17 + Purecontrol boots have been shown in the same iconic color combination as part of the new "champagne" collection,
"The champagne design was one of the most emblematic of Adidas Football for our most iconic start, Adidas Predator Mania," said Sam Handy, vice president of design at Adidas Football.

"With the new Adidas champagne pack, we were able to merge a classic with our modern innovations, giving it the current touch that we know football fans want," he added.

The Predator Mania and the accompanying champagne pack are available on the Adidas website.

Earlier this year, the brand collaborated with fashion designer Stella McCartney to create a version of her Ultra Boost coach that is made from recycled plastic from the sea.

He recently unveiled designs for trainers made using a new additive manufacturing technique that "overcomes defects" of 3D printing.
