adidas Launch the Predator Mania 19.1 "White/Core Black/Predator Red"

Arriving as part of the Predator’s 25th anniversary celebrations, adidas launch the Predator Mania 19.1 in a classic colour combination of "White/Core Black/Predator Red", fusing the aesthetics of the iconic silo with modern day tooling for a revamped release that holds plenty of nostalgic appeal.

There’s no doubt that the Predator Mania is one of the most iconic boots of all time, and it only seems fitting that as part of the Predator’s 25th anniversary, the Three Stripes revisit the silo that exists as a crucial part of so many of out fondest footballing memories. And so we get a double dose of past meets present, with the Predator Mania 19.1 landing alongside the laceless Predator Mania 19+, which arrives in an equally traditional "Black/Predator Red/White”, inverting the colourway of the 19.1, each complementing the other perfectly in some welcome 2002 vibes.

So if you favour laces, the Predator Mania 19.1 "White/Core Black/Predator Red" is for you. As with the 19+ option it again uses an iconic Predator colourway, and it’s one that conjures images of Beckham’s 2002 World Cup “champagne” Mania, inverting the white and black of the laceless 19+. So this time we get a white base, complemented by black details popping through the Three Stripes, rubber elements, and of course, being a 19.1 model, the laces.

The real talking point here is the return of those rubber fins, an essential element in the Predators DNA some may argue, and they’re once again back on the modern day Predator in the unmistakeable Mania curve, accompanied by a K-leather upper for even more authentic feels. Sure it’s missing a tongue – another key ingredient in the Mania’s iconic silhouette – but in its place is the modern day comfort and lock in of the Primeknit collar. Like we said, present day tech combined with past aesthetics. What more could you want for Christmas?
