With a vision for Precision adidas re-launch one of their most iconic Predators of all time. The first Predator of the millennium is transformed seventeen years later into a modern maverick that bends the rules as hard as it bends the ball. Yep, it's happening.

Today is a mighty fine day. Today is the day that one of the greatest adidas football boots ever made returns for a crack at the big time. Today is what Christmas would be like if David Beckham was Santa Claus, Zidane was helping him out, and they're both in your back garden curling presents round a wall of snowmen into the top corner of your damn stocking. We've gone off topic...


Following on from the re-release of the Predator Mania Champagne in May this year adidas reach further back into their prestigious archives to pull out more generation gold. Opting for the distinctive blue colourway, the Three Stripes deliver a boot that stays as close to the original as possible. One-to-one colour matching from the original sits on a K-Leather upper and fold-over tongue with velcro strap, and the trademark rubber elements follow the same pattern as the original.

Both the stripes and rubber elements are stitched on, as per the original, and the insole replicates the design from back in 2000. The key difference is the soleplate; taken from the ACE 17 to ensure the Predator Precision is lightweight enough to be declared match fit.


To reveal the adidas Predator Precision, adidas Football teamed up with photographer Nick Knight to capture imagery with David Beckham – one of the players to make the boot famous back in 2000. Pin-point passing and deadly accuracy from set pieces, traits that came symbolic with the Predator series.

The original adidas Predator Precision was launched ahead of Euro 2000 and was worn by the likes of Patrick Kluivert and David Trezeguet, as well as the main men Zizou and Beckham. Naturally, the Predator Precision will fall under the adidas Limited Collection and will be released in restricted numbers. Those quick enough to bag a pair will be holding a pinch of Predator perfection.

The new Predator Precision will be available exclusively in the adidas Paris Football store from September 5th and in limited numbers at selected retailers including prodirectsoccer.com from September 8th.
