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? 😃👍🏻

  

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.

  

   
 

Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg “Made in Germany”

So last week I reached a huge milestone as a collector! I got up to 10.000 followers on InstaGram (@toffem) and best of all I bought myself a pair of Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg “Made in Germany”!

  
They are match worn by Pedro Barbosa a former captain of Sporting CP and Portuguese national team! They are really uniq as he had a contract with Adidas back in the days! The boot is measured to him and made of really high quality leather! 

  
There is no tags in the boot, but you can clearly see on the leather, stiching, tongue, rubber fins and on the structure of the heel that they are made for a proffesional player and also “Made in Germany”.

Some stats of his career:

  • 1995–2005 Sporting CP 259 (39)
  • 1992–2002 Portugal 22 (5)

Adidas Predator Accelerator Generation

So I found the last colour of the Adidas Predator Accelerator! I have been looking for the red ones some years now, actually I have owned couple of them in the past but both times the boots were in worser condition than descripted in the listing. But this time I bought them from a friend of mine so I could count on him! 

  

 So thanks to my friend for the red pair, now I completed to have all the different colours of the famous Predator Accelerator.

These four colourways were released:

  • White/black
  • Black/red/White
  • Red/black
  • Electricity yellow (limited to a release of 999 pairs worldwide)

 And the blue pair in the picture is a custome made pair, I call the colourway “France98”! 😉
   
    
 

Adidas Predator Accelerator “France98” Edition 

I saw while ago a customation from @designboz and got a further idea in my mind: 

“Adidas Predator Accelerator was released in 1998, the same year France won the FIFA World Cup, the World Cup were also held in France. All this under the leadership of Didier Deschamps and three-time FIFA World Player of the Year Zinedine Zidane. As Zidane became one of the big names to commersial the Predator Accelerator during The World Cup I thought it would been perfect if Adidas had released a Predator Accelerator in the colours of France, Blue/White/Red.”
Please let me know what you think?

  

  

  

  

  

All made in Germany!

Here is all my Predators that are made in Germany! Public versions were made in Indonesia and the made in germany versions were only worn by proffesionals, so rare rare rare! 😋
