Adidas have remastered the Predator Accelerator and they go on sale tomorrow

You’ll have to spend crazy money to get your hands on them, however.

WE CAN’T HELP but feel a little nostalgic looking at pictures like the one above.

The Adidas Predator Accelerator, one of our all-time favourite football boots, was made famous in the late 1990s by world stars such as Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham.

While the Predator range was discontinued in 2015, the German company have remastered the Accelerator 20 years on from its first release.

The limited edition will go on sale on and ProDirect Soccer tomorrow morning, but unfortunately, there’s a catch — they will set you back an eye-watering €349.95.

Ridiculous, even in this day and age when boots cost an arm and a leg.

They come in a trainer too, but at €100 less, €249.95 is still crazy money to fork out.

Makes you wonder how many pairs they’ll actually sell.
