Adidas Bring Out Re-Release Of Classic Predator Boots 20 Years On

Adidas have re-released their iconic Predator Mania boots, 20 years after possibly the greatest goal ever scored with them was put away.

There are few more well known football boots than Adidas' Predators with many of the players of the early 00s that defined the football landscape of the time wearing them.

The likes of David Beckham, Alessandro del Piero, Raul and later on Kaka all adorned the three stripes of the Predators, and looked great in them.

Perhaps most memorable of all though was Zinedine Zidane in the Mania boots, scoring his famous strike against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League final in 2002 in them.

20 years after that goal, considered by many to be the best goal in a Champions League final ever, competing with Gareth Bale of course, the company have re-released the boots.

If you do want a pair of the boots you're gonna have to be very rapid on the internet, when they're released at the beginning of July.

Adidas are initially only releasing 2002 pair of them, we see what they've done there, when they come out on the 11th of the month, and there's no word on if more will be dropping after that.

Fans are sure to want to get their hands on them, and their feet in them, with Predators being voted as the greatest football boots ever.

There's no word on how much the limited edition boots will cost, although it'll probably be less than the last time Adidas brought out a version of them.

Back in April they released a version of the Predators with Swarovski Crystals bedded into them, lord knows why, which cost £300.

Zidane's goal against Leverkusen isn't the only thing that makes him synonymous with the Champions League, having led Real Madrid to three titles in-a-row as manager.

He was in Paris on Saturday night to see Carlo Ancelotti's side win the title for the 14th time, as they beat Liverpool in the final, thanks to Vinicius Junior's winning goal.

The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving Los Blancos for the second time but he has been linked with a return, potentially with PSG this summer.
