Milestones – Nike Tiempo Premier Sg 1994

Nike showed that they are also able to make football boots! The year was 1994, world cup in USA. It was the year Nike announced themselves to the world of football boots. In the world cup Nike managed to supply 10 of the players to wear Nike Tiempo in the World Cup Final between Italy-Brazil. Also 2 of the biggest stars to wear the boots, Romario and Maldini!

Nike wanted to keep the comfort and keep the boot strong. Nike Tiempo 1994 was a classy black leather boot with a white Nike swoosh. Already then Nike wanted to keep the boot quite simple and light compared to the other brands.

Milestones – Adidas Predator 1994

The original Adidas Predator released in 1994 was revolutionary in the way it managed to add power and swerve to the kick thanks to the rubber fins!


It was Craig Johnston back in 1988, footballer from Australia, who was the key man developing the first Predator. It was his idea to add the rubber fins, he compared it to table-tennis.

These boots became Adidas biggest revolution in the history of football boots!

Thank you for reading and next Milestone will be published soon.

Nike Premier 1994

Truly an iconic boot! In this boots it’s all about simplicity and touch instead of bright colours. The fact is that these boots were worn by pros like Ronaldo before the Mercurial speed boots were released in 1998.

Original Predator

The boots that changed the world! -Adidas Predator 1994, creator for the design was Johnston the ex-Middleborough and Liverpool footballer. He saw the potential of rubber over leather to increase grip, swerve and feel. He compared it with table tennis bat!
These boots got a thick layer of leather that would last a World War 😂

Classics or remakes?

In Every football related site you recently have visited you can read about the Predator remakes that Adidas is doing for it’s 20th anniversary! They are remaking the Predator 1994, Accelerator 1998 and Mania 2002. They are produced in limited numbers and cost 260£ 😱 I think the idea is great, but is it really worth to buy a cheaply made plastic remake instead of buying a pair of the originals? I truly like the idea, but should Adidas have done them with a bit of more love?? 😃 I will stay with the originals!
