Wanted to repost one of, in my opinion, best looking boots I have! So this colourway never existed but I had them airbrush painted and I call them “France98”! 
  
The idea behind this was:

1. France won the World Cup in 1998, France was the hosts.

2. France won the title.

3. Zinedine Zidane was one of the big stars to use and advertise the new release of Adidas Predator Accelerator!

I really think Adidas should have made a edition like this! Your thoughts? πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»

  

Adidas Predator Accelerator Trainer

So here is a result of a small project. I always wanted to have a pair of Predator Accelerator football boots that would be in trainer concept. So what I did was: I bought myself a pair of old and broken Predator Accelerator football boots, I cleaned them properly and I brought them to a local shoemaker. I presented my idea of the boots for the shoemaker and he gladly accepted the request, but he couldn’t promise 100% it would work, he said he will keep me updated while it progress. 

  
After about 10 weeks he had them finished. I went to his shop and he told me about the hard work it took to converte the boots to trainers. He also found a original “retro” adidas soleplate to use in them! Will certainly do it over again sometime in the future.

  

   
 

Next steps on the Project

Here’s next steps of my boot project!
I decided to use the Carbon soleplate from Nike Mercurial Vapor 4 SL and attach it to Nike Vapor I!
Will soon start the placing and gluing the soleplate.
Stay tunedπŸ‘Œ
