eBay – the Internet’s scrapheap; full of completely useless things that people just want rid of. But occasionally something interesting crops up, like these beauties!
Hardcore Predator fans will note that these are above and beyond the call of normal customisation, as they are in fact a disguised pair of Predator Precisions.
Hiding behind the distinctive huge tongue of the Predator Accelerator, these Predator Precision football boots were being worn by Beckham in 1999 – a year before the release of the Precision ‘proper’.
The Accelerator was the Predator for the World Cup in 1998, and was due to be replaced by the Precision in 2000, but as adidas love to do, they snuck Becks this disguised pair to test before the launch.
Just in case anyone was wondering, you can see from the specification label that Mr Beckham is a size 7 and 3/4 – I wish I could get quarter sizing – clearly getting the 5-Star treatment there, Becks!
The seller is asking just shy of £2500 for these completely one-off football boots – and you can take a further look here if you’d like!
Thanks to the ever-excellent Mud, Sweat, Badges for the heads up!
