Restored Adidas Predator Precision Sg “CL-Edition”

About one month ago I bought myself these used Adidas Predator Precision Sg in the sought after “Champions League” edition. I paid £50+shipping and I knew back then that these boots got some potential, although they looked quite beaten up. But it’s always fun with some small projects right?


The issues the boots had was: 

  • The aluminium studs were totally broken
  • The white colour was faded 
  • The silver colour from the stripes were faded
  • The soleplate was coming off in some parts

All these issues were fixed step by step. Every project starts with a good clean up!

Then the studs were replaced with new ones and the parts off the soleplate that were coming off I simply heated up the plastic and slowly pressed it back on place by using two-component glue. After this it was time for the paintjob. Luckly I found few years back a great local airbrush artist (maalinetti.com) in my home city who also does these kind of jobs. 

The final result was perfect! This is how they turned up!


It’s always worth to restore old boots if possible!
