If ever there was a sight that could render crowds of football boots fans into blubbering, nostalgic messes, it would be this; the iconic red tongue is back on the adidas Predator.
A hallmark of some of the greatest football boots ever to be made; the Predator Mania, Accelerator, Precision, Pulse – the Predator tongue has been sorely missed since it was sent to the wayside on the 2010 Predator_X.
Four years later, and it’s back on the adidas Predator Instinct Tongue.
As with the Predator Instinct Eyes that appeared earlier, these are a strict limited edition that won’t be available to buy in stores.
Instead, we’re expecting these to become iconic collector’s items for die-hard Predator fans, likely given away by adidas to competition winners.
The adidas Predator Instinct Tongue remains another slightly mysterious piece of the celebrations of the adidas Predator 20th anniversary celebrations and the official launch of the Instinct.
After a Battle Pack-heavy focus on the World Cup, we’re expecting massive things from adidas as the season rumbles on and the Predator is given time to shine.
Until then, we’ll have to make do with the limited edition adidas Predator Instinct Tongue and Eyes model until adidas are willing to show more of their hand.
what’s the point of doing this if they’re not going to release it to the public?
You can’t say the red tongue is back if it really isn’t. Come on 200 or so people will have the red tongue and the rest of the world will have what ever color there is. Yeah not back in my opinion.
Adidas has made what will be one of the most idiotic moves they have ever made by not making these readily available to the public. These would sell out in large numbers just as well if they were limited. Honestly this is almost as bad as the adidas Primeknit FS
If these will only be given to small number of people, my money is that they will basically bring back the Predator Accelerators but with updated materials. If they brought back a perfect copy I terms of appearence they would be bought by so so many especislly those aged 24 upwards
Best colour and not available… Something wrong in my opinion..
