Main colourway: Black/red

Worn by: Zinedine Zidane, Steven Gerrard, David Beckham

A part of the classic Predator range, Adidas provided another classic ahead of Euro 2004.

The iconic black/red colourway remained, meaning this boot was as stylish as those that came before. It was the perfect boot for the classic box to box midfielder.

Adidas Predator Accelerator (1998)


Main colourway: Black/red/white

These were THE Adidas boots of the 1998 World Cup. Four years on from the release of the original Predator boot, Adidas made sure to stand out from the crowd for France ‘98.

They were worn by Zinedine Zidane as he guided France to their first ever World Cup victory, beating Brazil 3-0 in the final.

Adidas F50 Adizone (2011)


Main colourway: Yellow/purple/red

Worn by: Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale

This edition of the F50 was quite popular with the younger generation. The crazy bright colourway definitely caught the eyes of everybody, but you could not blame kids wanting to own a pair when they saw Lionel Messi work his magic while sporting a pair.

It’s safe to say that if you grew up in the 2010’s, there are probably a pair of these boots somewhere in your attic.

Adidas Copa Whiteout (2014)


Main colourway: White

Worn by: Jonathan Walters

In 2014, Adidas took their iconic Copa Mundial boot and decided to create an all-white version.

The boots looked as good as ever, although they were extremely rare. Former Stoke City and Ireland forward Jonathan Walters is the only player that has been pictured wearing them during a match.

Adidas Football Shoe for the 1954 World Cup (1954)

Main colourway: Black/white

Worn by: West German National team, 1954

These boots were quite literally revolutionary. Designed by Adidas founder Adi Dassler, the boot allowed players to be able to change their studs, depending on the conditions they were playing in.

West Germany created history in the boots, winning the 1954 World Cup despite their team being made up of mostly semi-professionals.

Adidas Predator Mania: Champagne reissue (2019)


Main colourway: Champagne/red/black

Worn by: David Beckham, James Rodríguez

David Beckham is arguably the most fashionable footballer of all time. In 2002, Beckham opted to wear a Champagne version of the Mania Predators.

Adidas F50 (2004)

Main colourway: Black/yellow

Worn by: Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, Alessandro Del Piero

The original Adidas F50’s were revolutionary. Gone were the classic three stripes and in came a singular dash of colour.

These boots were also quite modern due to their lightweight design, unlike previous boots that would have been heavier.

Adidas Beckenbauer Super (1978)

Main colourway: Black/yellow

Worn by: Franz Beckenbauer

Simple yet sublime. For everyone who enjoys the colourful F50’s, there is someone who loves the simplicity of the Beckenbauer Super Boots.

A black boot with yellow stripes, the style was easy on the eye and uncomplicated.

Adidas Copa Mundial (1978)

Main colourway: Black/white

Worn by: Diego Maradona, Franz Beckenbauer, Zinedine Zidane

Not many boots that are 44 years old can still fit in with modern style, but the Copa Mundial are definitely an exception.

These retro boots are simple yet incredibly unique. The three Adidas white stripes stand out in the best way possible.

Worn by legends far and wide, it can’t be argued that this is one of the greatest football boots of all time.

Adidas Predator Mania (2002)

Main colourway: Black/red/white

Worn by: David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Steven Gerrard, Xavi, Patrick Vieira

This boot is simply unmatched. It has everything you are looking for in a pair of football boots.

The famous three white stripes of Adidas, the red tongue and the black laces, there aren’t enough words to describe the brilliance of this boot.

Worn by Beckham, Zidane and all the other footballing legends of the 2000’s, these boots were a must have then, and they are a must have now. Despite the many re-creations and boots inspired from the Predator Mania, nothing will ever beat the original.
