There Are Rumours That Adidas' F50.6 Tunit Football Boots Will Be Re-Released

Ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, the guys over at Adidas released a boot like no other.

The F50.6 Tunit would give players the opportunity to personalise their boot configuration down to preference in order to gain optimal performance no matter what the playing surface.

When he was speaking about the Predator X, Zizou revealed it was the brand he wore throughout his career.

"Having worn Predators throughout my career, I've always been amazed with the continued product development and what each new version of the boot bought to my game," he said via Footy Boot.

"With Predator X, I've been working with Adidas to help lend my football experience to their product knowledge to truly deliver the next step in boot technology."
