Adidas to release new Predator Accelerator, and it's a real throwback

Absolute boot porn

We have all had the discussion before, what are the best football boots? There are so many out there, they take on a life of their own. More often than not, a brand name doesn't even matter. Take our first pair for example.

The legendary Copa Mundial's, made by Adidas.

Beckenbauer, Baresi, Platini... enough said! Absolute classics.

Who can forget our next pair - we're calling these the Roy Keane specials.

They are of course the classic, Diadora football boots.

Back in the day, you would have been the talk of the club, coming out for pre-season in a pair of these Puma King's, too.

Iconic

There is no doubt about it though, the world's most iconic football boot is the Adidas Predator.

Nothing has gripped footballer's around the world than the allure of the Predator, made most famous by David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane and Steven Gerrard.

Three years ago, Adidas announced they were discontinuing the iconic boot, much to everyone's dismay. Tears were shed all over the world after the announcement.

The evolution of the boot throughout its 20-year run was simply incredible.

The Predator did indeed make a comeback for Adidas in 2017 much to the delight of boot heads around the world.

However, you would be hard pushed to find an old style Pred out there today, as the website opts to sell only the newer version instead.

That was until Adidas launched the classic black, white and red original Predator Accelerator boot this month.

That is right, they are introducing the re-mastered version of the original Predator Accelerator for all you fanatics out there.

Let's just take a look at these beauties.

This instantly recognisable classic should turn out to be very popular.

The boots are available to order on Pro:Direct this Thursday at 9am.

You are going to have to get in there quick. We imagine they will be sold faster than a whipped Becks free-kick.
