Adidas relaunches classic Beckham football boots

Sportswear company Adidas has launched a new version of its Predator Mania football boot, in the cream and red colour combination worn by footballer David Beckham during the 2002 World Cup.

Its release coincides with the former England football captain’s 42nd birthday.

The Predator range was first unveiled in 1994 and eventually ran to  18 different models, including the Mania.

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

The boot also has asymmetrical laces and wearers are able to hide these away by tying down the red tongue with an attached elasticated strap.

The Predator black rubber pads also make a return. They are placed on the top of the boot to offer increased kicking power and accuracy for players.

Adidas has incorporated its SprintFrame technology – a lightweight base that provides stability –  within the outsole, bringing the classic style up to date with recent designs.
