The Predator III Touch (1996)
As the Predator brand gained traction, adidas made alterations to the design. The Touch featured directional Traxion studs for the first time. More red was added to the overall aesthetic and with the inception of the iconic fold-over tongue, the Predator’s timeless look was born.
The Predator Precision (2000)
The Precision marked the introduction of the Velcro on the fold-over tongue to hold it in place. The use of interchangeable studs meant that players could wear them in all conditions.
David Beckham famously wore these boots to score the mind-blowing free kick against Greece to send England to the 2002 World Cup.
The Predator Mania (2002)
The Mania introduced the wonders of premium K-leather and a strap for the fold-over tongue which replaced the Velcro. This strap enabled the player to lock the tongue firmly in place. Drawing inspiration from East Asia, notably Japan and Korea, this boot was released ahead of the 2002 World Cup. An external heel counter was added for extra stability on the pitch.
Donning the Manias, Zinedine Zidane scored the famous goal against Bayer Leverkusen during the Champions League Final.
An iconic boot with an unforgettable history. Since its introduction in 1994, the adidas Predator has been worn by legendary footballers such as David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Steven Gerrard and many more.
With its fold-over tongue, leather features and the classic Three Stripes, the unparalleled Predator has a rich legacy spanning over two decades.
