Drawing closer to the FIFA World Cup it’s inevitable that the world’s leading brands will be looking for their share of the spotlight – and adidas have gone for gold with their latest offering. Bringing one of their most historic player exclusives to the table the Three Stripes are making sure that their fans remember some of their finest moments in footballing history. Step into the spotlight, the adidas Predator Absolute, arriving in the same stunning gold famously seen on the feet of former French captain, Zinedine Zidane, in the 2006 World Cup Final.
When the boots were first unveiled in 2006, they highlighted Zidane’s illustrious career which football purists hoped would end in World Cup glory. Marco Materazzi & Italy had other ideas, and following Zizou’s famous headbutt, the boots left the sport with the legend that wore them. Now back with a modern-day soleplate borrowed from it’s descendant, the Predator Edge, the 2022 Absolute’s utilise the OG gold upper with SL rubber elements and the iconic fold-over tongue. Brilliant gold highlights the pair, which are sure to fly off shelves.
The adidas Predator Absolute “Gold” dropped without warning this morning, November 1st, 2022 on adidas.co.uk & select retailers for $350 (or £250 if you’re lucky). Hopefully we see a larger release, though that might be slim seeing as this is a limited-edition release with people the world over looking to grab their pair. Be sure to keep up to date with the latest with Nice Kicks on Instagram & Twitter as we gear up for this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
