THERE WAS GOOD news today for football boots aficionados.

The release of new Adidas limited edition Predator boots has been confirmed, replete with a distinctive tongue that will be familiar to those old enough to remember the original boots.

They have been produced to celebrate 20 years of Predator, whose boots were considered revolutionary when they initially launched.

Spearheaded by former Australian footballer Craig Johnston, the boots’ design quickly became iconic, while tests showed that they gave players the ability to get more power and swerve on the ball when striking it.

Check out a short promo for these boots below.
