This boot was the main subject everyone talked about this week, the Predator Mania remake from the Adidas “Champagne Pack”. They were released the 3rd of May. I tired to buy a pair but again, third time a row with limited releases, didn’t manage to get to buy s pair… The boots was released at Adidas websitenaround 8.00 GMT and I queued 50 minutes until it said “Sold Out”. Then I got a new chance on Pro-Direct Soccer around 9.02 GMT and added a pair to my basket and paid, I were not over thrilled as I had been in the same situation many times 😛 6 hours later I get a mail from Pro-Direct Soccer saying “Sorry you missed out”… Nothing new here xD
As usually you find the boots on eBay, where people trying to sell the same boots that were released few hours ago, asking for a good profit ofcourse. Some of them will sell for a high price and some will probably end selling for closer to the retail price in few months.
To cheer up a bit I took the time to photoshoot the original Adidas Predators with the real tongues!
From the first Adidas Predator Rapier 1995 with folded tongue, ending with the Adidas Predator Powerswerve in 2008-2009.
Few of my favourites in the past years:
Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg, 1998 (Made in Germany with 8 studded soleplate)
Adidas Predator Mania Sg, 2002 (Made in Germany)
Adidas Predator Precision Sg, 2000 (Made in Germany and worn by Abelardo as central defender in Barcelona)
