The colourway of a generation is spread across the complete adidas football footwear collection as the Three Stripes mark the 15th anniversary of the Champagne Predator Mania. A golden child of the Beckham boot boom, the Champagne series was a Predator icon and now adidas have poured the bubbles over the ACE 17+ Purecontrol as two distinct styles clash in limited edition layers.

Making up the laceless representation from the adidas Champagne pack, the ACE 17+ Purecontrol is joined by Champagne editions of the X 16+, Predator Mania, Copa and UltraBOOST models as adidas pass the bottle around their full football offering. The ACE 17+ will no doubt go on to be the boot of its generation, it has everything in place to do so; game-changing technology, a completely unique design and a squad of world-class players.

All these traits are shared with the Champagne Predator Mania – a boot that triggers a nostalgic flow of football greatness for players of a certain age. The fact that adidas are willing to share the Champagne colour with the ACE is somewhat of a seal of approval. A marker of success and establishment.

Some description

The Champagne ACE 17+ is very much the same boot as we know it. Designed with a red Purecut Sock System to lock the foot in place and a cream 360 degree fully Primeknit upper, as well as that adidas BOOST sole. Each technology is the very pinnacle of adidas football innovation. Wrap all that goodness in a suit of 2002 fame and you're looking at a limited edition drop with serious game. No two ways about it, this is the most desirable pack of 2017.
