Adidas is celebrating 25 years of the Predator by releasing special-edition recreations from the careers of two of the boots' most celebrated ambassadors: Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham.
These famous throwbacks are just the latest iconic retro boots to get a modern-day makeover, with Nike's famous R9 getting a freshening and re-release last season to celebrate 20 years since Ronaldo's iconic boots of the 1998 World Cup.

The Archive pack pays homage to Zidane and Beckham by recalling famous moments in the pair's careers.
Zidane's Predator Accelerators are inspired by the boot's 1998 design and are finished in gold, a nod to the Frenchman's World Cup and Ballon d'Or triumphs that year. Beckham's Predator Precisions, meanwhile, come from the 2001 model, the pair he wore when scoring that free kick against Greece that qualified England for the 2002 World Cup.
