Throughout 2023, online retail brand Pro:Direct Soccer has been celebrating its 25th anniversary with some of the most decadent drops of the year, collaborating with some of the biggest sporting brands in the world to bring us some very special edition releases, and here we round them all up in one place.

1998 gave us a bunch of wonderful things, from the World Cup in France and the debut of the Nike Mercurial to the adidas Predator Accelerator – one of the best Predators of all time. And it also gave us Pro:Direct Soccer, which has gone on to become one of the largest online sport retailers in the world. Now, 25 years on, they've been celebrating their anniversary with the help of the biggest sports brands in the world, releasing

PUMA Future x PowerCat Tokyo

First out of the traps was a partnership with PUMA, with the Future x PowerCat ‘Tokyo’ taking the current Future Ultimate boot and dressing it out in what is one of the most visually striking looks in PUMA’s back catalogue, namely 2011’s PowerCat ‘Tokyo’.

adidas Predator Accelerator '25th Anniversary Edition'

Quite possibly the pick of the lot, the adidas Predator Accelerator made a triumphant return in limited fashion, combining its own 25th anniversary with that of Pro:Direct's. Silver chrome was subbed on in place of white in the otherwise classic Predator colourway. Special doesn't even cut it.

Arriving hot on the heels of the King Top 75+25, the King Ultimate 75+25 edition was the modern day performance alternative to the more traditional feeling King Top. Inverting the colour scheme, the clean white base was joined by silver accents. Once again, it featured dual branding on the heel.

Lotto Solista 200 x PD25

Following on from the golden Stadio, which was released in part to celebrate the brand's own 50th anniversary, this time full focus was given to Pro:Direct, with an exclusive edition of the Lotto Solista 200. Just 150 pairs were available, with each pair individually numbered on the heel. The silver base was once again appropriate for the occasion, and it featured staple green accents that are synonymous with the Lotto Stadio series. A nice callout to the '25 Years of Obsession' mantra that accompanied Pro:Direct's celebrations appeared on the forefoot.

Oozing sleek appeal out of every stitch mark on that sumptuous cushioned upper, where others had gone celebration, this was pure seduction.
