Once again Footy Boots is here to bring you up to date with the latest developments in the football boot market.
This time around it’s a heads up on what to expect from Adidas in the coming 12 months.
As stated in our previous article, ADIDAS SALES 50% UP ON WORLD CUP 2006 , Adidas is looking to capitalise on the major interest that the Euro’s have sparked and continue their advance on the global football market. Germany’s quarter final win over Portugal won’t have done them any harm and they’re backing that up with some spanking new designs which are bound to cause a stir amongst players, watchers and geeks alike. Here’s what you can expect.
Adidas Predator Power Swerve
According to Adidas representatives, David Beckham will have a white/blue ClimaCool'® Predator produced for him to wear while doing his stuff in the MLS with the Los Angeles Galaxy. This could be due to him wanting more of a flexible fit than his current synthetic leather after having had to quit k-leather products, more of which you can learn about via a previous Footy Boots article, ingeniously entitled: kangaroo leather football boot ban.
There will be 2 more additions to the Champions League edition Predator’s next season. It is an odd concept, but a White/Indigo/Rave Green colourway is due to be released at the beginning of the competition with a Black/Red colourway being released towards the latter stages of the tournament.

Adidas F50.9 TUNiT
The adidas F50.9 will debut in a black/electric yellow colourway and have a new design for the three stripes. At last, Adidas have finally given a player worthy of his own line a colourway. The man in question is Argentina and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. However, plans for an Adidas / Messi razor were abandoned when someone remembered that he’s not old enough to shave. A new Champions League F50.9 will be produced in a colourway to match its counterpart, the Predator Power Swerve’s. Check back here at Footy Boots soon for a look at the specially produced F50’s currently being worn in Austria and Switzerland.
