We showed you a sneak preview of them when the man himself sneaked them into an England training session – and now we’re thrilled to share with you the all new, all-red adidas Predator_X DB Beckham Red.
The ex-England captain is well known for being a pioneer when it comes to football boot fashion, as these adidas Predator_X DB‘s seem to be his latest acquisition.
In a striking all-red colourway, these new Beckham Predator_X‘s are certainly eye-catching, and would have looked great with either his England Home or Away kit in this summer’s World Cup – until of course, that nasty ankle injury saw him bow out.
Unlike the previous Beckham Predator_X‘s, which had a huge Tribal pattern on the swerve-zone, these new adidas Predator_X DB Beckham Red feature very little distinguishing branding. The only piece we can see is the tiny Beckham icon underneath the swerve zone – very minimal indeed!
These adidas Predator_X DB Beckham Red‘s feature adidas’ Taurus Leather upper for maximum comfort and fell on the ball. Unlike Beckham’s Predator Powerswerve’s which had a Synthetic upper. The reason for the switch is likely to do with the switch in upper material by adidas from Kangaroo Leather to their custom Taurus blend.
Upon his move to the LA Galaxy, Beckham was lobbied by Animal Right Activists to stop wearing Kangaroo leather football boots, from then on Becks’ Predators were synthetic – complying with the activists wishes and gaining some good publicity too!
One thing that many keen boot-spotters will notice is that Beckham is still customising his Predator_X‘s to include the adidas Predator PowerSwerve‘s heel counter – something that he’s been doing since the launch of the Predator_X.
These eye-catching Predators are available to buy in early August, and will have an RRP of £135.

Becks back to United? Well that would be a good dream… xD
omfg -_- i wated for ages for the release of these, THEN i went nd bought UCL edition ones cuz i got fed up of waiting NOW they are gunna be released fgs -_-
He’s the man. Wish he was playing. Those boots are the shit.
He should be at the Galaxy if he is fit enough to train with England and world class players. The Galaxy front offices are a bunch of bitches if they are letting him get paid to mess around with the England team and pretend to coach.
if u put it that way… it looked kinda like the red adipure II isn’t it…?
anyway, Beck’s the man… even if he’d never play in those boots, i bet the boots gonna sell like peanuts on a ball game, haha…
@Ian: c’mon man… it’s THE world cup. NOBODY stayed with their club at this time of the year, they stayed with their countries.
even Landon Donovan (hint: Galaxy’s number 10) are with the USA team, NOT with the Galaxy.
it also looks like he’s got a slightly different tongue/lacing system, it’s much more like the adipure III’s than the predator x’s
you’re probably the only english news site that don’t give wild, unfounded speculation. thank you.
If you look closely, the heel counter looks like the one on the predator powerswerve.
I not goin to buy beckhams pred I always(might be a tradition to me) buy ucl preds every year. The shoe looks like it is customised
These boots are sweet. I actually have this pair,but with the regular predator x style. They have beckham’s footballer logo on the inside of the foot on the “predator zone”. i can upload some pictures
These boots are completely new. They hold no bearing to the predator x boots at all. As has been previously mentioned, the heel and lace system are from other adidas boots which just shows what Beckham thinks of the latest predator boot. I own every pair of preds since production and must say they’ve made a mess of the latest design, i refuse to wear them. BRING BACK THE MANIAS!
when are they out
they will not be released as the ones he has, they are going to be released as predator x . I have them
Totally agree with “boot king” they suck. I am getting the predator PS DB white-gold metallic. much better boot.
Mania luna was the best boot ever my favorites.
here is proof. these are mine
here is proof. these are mine
Where did you get them?
news 4 u channo…..DONOVANS ACTUALLY PLAYING FOR THE US NATIONAL TEAM
Uh, Beckham most definitely switched to synthetic boots well before his arrival in the USA, and the reason he switched although publicly “spun” as he cares about the animals / he wanted brighter colors, it is actually Posh who is the animal lover that wanted the switch.
I thought that Beckham already had a pair of custom Predator_ Xs that were White with red stripes and a red sole plate
i know someone who owns factories and i got them from him back in may.
They will be in shops soon though!!
