Golden Player Winners Receive Custom adidas Boots

Dean Ariola

What do you do when you have both the Golden Boy winner and Golden Girl awardee for 2023? You reward them with a custom football boot! That’s exactly what adidas has done for Jude Bellingham and Linda Caicedo. And the fun fact is both are playing for Real Madrid, who also happen to be sponsored by the stripes brand! The German sports outfit are surely getting their money’s worth from the two Madridistas wearing their football boots…

Bellingham just recently had the Predator 30, a limited-edition precursor to the retail Predator version of 2024. But that did not stop the player from switching his pair to celebrate his latest achievement. This time around adidas took the limited-edition to the extreme, as the Bellingham Golden Boy celebratory Predator boot is a one-off and not available to buy. So if you happen to encounter this pair elsewhere, either Bellingham chose to part ways with the said pair or you’re dealing with a fake…

Caicedo’s commemorative Golden Girl custom X Crazyfast+ boots are also a one-off and not available for retail. Both customs boots are predominantly white with rose gold accents, particularly on the stripes and the outsole. Whereas Bellingham’s secondary colour detail is bright and more pastel-like (with a glossy finish for the soleplate), Caicedo’s boot accent appears fuller (and metallic at least on the outsole).
