Anyone who played soccer in the 1990s or early 2000s secretly or openly wished they owned a pair of Adidas Predator Classic Mania boots. Widely regarded as one of the best and most iconic soccer boots of all time, the Predator Classic Mania is being revived by Adidas after spending a dozen years in the freezer.

The original Adidas Predator Classic Mania was instantly recognizable thanks to its red, white and black kangaroo leather upper, sculpted heel cup and elastic tongue strap. The shoe provided players with excellent ball accuracy thanks to its extruding instep rubber grips.

The revived version of the boot retains the aesthetic of its classic forefather while integrating new features. It has a special control frame that offers unsurpassed grip, touch and ball control and is crafted out of precision-engineered materials.
