adidas Soccer launched the 25 Years of Predator Pack. A range of boots and apparel inspired by two of their most iconic footballers – David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane.

Beckham and Zidane have each been given an Archive Pack that references an iconic boot from their careers. Zidane’s ’98 Accelerators have been given a refreshed look and pay homage to his Ballon d’Or success in 1998 with a gold K-leather upper with blue, red and white. The re-released Accelerators will come with four different sets of laces; gold, navy, white and red.

The David Beckham Archive Pack features a new version of the Predator Precision he wore in 2001. They feature an all-white K-leather upper and the iconic red tongue. The Precision will come with two sets of laces; white and red.

The two Archive Pack Predator re-creations come in both an on-pitch boot and a trainer. The Archive Packs also both include a jersey , shirt and pant that throwback to the Real Madrid 2003/2004 strip, when both Beckham and Zidane played at the same time for the club.

Also part of the Pack is a unique co-created version of the Predator 19+ that brings the two iconic players together. The on-pitch boot is primarily inspired by the 1998 Accelerator boot Zidane won the Ballon d’Or and World Cup in, and comes a striking gold colorway. The co-created Predator 19+ feature detailed embroidery of the two player’s initials on the left and right boots.

The archive packs will be available to purchase beginning March 7, and the Predator 19+ boot range will be available to purchase from March 12 at adidas.com and selected retailers.
