After The Success Of The 2002 Manias, Adidas Set To Re-Release Another Classic Predator

After The Success Of The 2002 Manias, Adidas Set To Re-Release Another Classic Predator

It must be a particularly enjoyable time to be part of the ideas team at Adidas football lately, as they know they can just take a boot design that was created almost two decades ago, throw in a couple of modern features, and nostalgic football fans will be all over it.

Having launched the re-release of the iconic 2002 Predator Mania at the start of May, the limited edition boots sold out in minutes despite their €300 asking price, proving that those who believe the Adidas Predators are the best line of boots ever made are willing to back that up with their wallets.

It is entirely understandable that Adidas saw the reaction to the Manias, on the back of the 1998 Predator Accelerator's re-release in 2014, and just decided to do see what else that had left in the locker, as next on the list is the 2000 Adidas Predator Precision.

Admittedly one of the uglier Predators, it still should prove immensely popular for anyone who had a pair at the time, or holds Euro 2000 as one of their favourite ever tournaments.

News of the re-release was revealed by FootyHeadlines.com, who got it spot on regarding the 2002 Mania 'Champagne' boots months in advance.

Having only just launched the Predator Mania in the form of a very limited remake, Adidas is set to bring back another iconic Predator from its back catalog in the form of the Precision.

It's not known which colorway Adidas will release the Predator Precision in, but it's all but confirmed that it'll be the "default" black and red which, after all, was also the one Adidas initially re-released the 1994, 1998 and 2002 models in.

Players such as David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Alessandro Del Piero, and Patrick Kluivert rocked the Predator Precisions back in the day, and although the size of the three-stripe design didn't sit well with some, they were an absolute joy to wear.

We're loving the trend of re-releasing classic boot designs with the latest technologies, now if only Adidas would put out some throwback F50s we'd be over the moon.

Also, if they could release more than a few thousand pairs so we could get some, that's be great too. Just saying...
