Sports icon, adidas icon and true Predator icon. Once again, adidas have come up trumps in designing another signature football boot for star pin-up David Beckham. An essential symbol of the adidas brand, David Beckham has helped shape generations of adidas Predator boots.
Now approaching the twilight of his career, 'brand Beckham' continues to be as strong as ever. The adidas DB Predator range is showing no signs of slowing down with the stunning release of the new Gold/Red/Black adiPower DB Predator football boots! Take a look and share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
As Manchester United's golden generation gathered for club legend Gary Neville's testimonial match at Old Trafford, David Beckham used the special occasion to mark the arrival of his latest signature DB football boots! The LA Galaxy midfielder set the online boot community into a frenzy, creating a real buzz around his new golden adiPower DB football boots!
David Beckham's iconic world-wide status as an adidas symbol maintains his position as adidas' top player. Beckham's signature football boots carry a unique feel about them, offering a certain class unrivalled by any other soccer shoe – there's nothing quite like a DB adidas Predator!
Beckham's new signature adiPower DB Predator football boots feature a stunning gold synthetic upper with fiery red stripes. Renowned for wearing synthetic Predator's due to animal rights beliefs, Beckham’s new Gold/Red/Black DB adiPower Predator football boots are 10g lighter than the standard leather adiPower, weighing just 225g.
Golden adidas Predator's have marked special occasions over recent years. Most famously, Beckham was presented with a limited edition pair of adidas Predator PowerSwerve DB Gold football boots to mark his 100th cap for England. Prior to that, former Galactico Zinedine Zidane wore a limited edition pair of Gold Predator Absolute's for the 2006 World Cup. Both stunning boots, but both limited numbers.
For Pred fans already speculating whether or not the same will apply for the new Gold/Red/Black adiPower DB Predator soccer shoes, we can reveal they are set for a full release from adidas in mid July. Beckham and Predator fans the world over will be able to get their hands on one of the most unique football boots of the year!
For those of you not up to speed with the new adiPower Predator football boots, adidas' next generation Pred is their most revolutionary yet! Power has merged with lightweight construction to create the lightest and most powerful Predator ever. A newly introduced SprintFrame out-sole combines with the familiar Predator PowerSpine, while an all new Predator Element allows for more power and swerve than ever before.
On previous Beckham models, the LA Galaxy midfielder has asked to retain the PowerPulse element from the Predator PowerSwerve football boots. As Beckham becomes more familiar with the new adiPower soccer cleats, it will be interesting to see whether 'Golden Balls' continues this way or embraces the new lightweight adidas technology.
A Beckham Predator wouldn't be complete without the world-famous 'free-kick' logo on the boot! Described as the 'Jordan' logo of the soccer world, Beckham's iconic symbol features on the heel of the right boot while the adidas performance logo maintains its place on the left.
The new Gold/Red/Black adiPower DB Predator football boots are expected to be available from mid July and will retail worldwide for around £155 GBP / $230 USD / €185 EURO.
