Diego Costa (Sao Paulo FC) Next Generation adidas Predator

Over to Brazil for a first look at what we're guessing is the launch colourway of the next generation adidas Predator, which is due to drop imminently. The colour scheme closely matches that of the Predator LZ, which this new model certainly bears a close resemblance to.
