As part of its ongoing ’25 Years of Obsession’ silver anniversary campaign where they partner with brands for exclusive releases, Pro:Direct Soccer has unveiled the project’s work with adidas, the ’25th Anniversary’ Predator Accelerator. It is a follow-up to the series’ first boot, the Puma ‘PowerCat Tokyo’ Future Ultimate, released last April 2023. The retailer adds something to the original colourway of the Predator Accelerator, which like them started its life way back 1998, to truly reflect their shared quadranscentennial celebration.
That curvy stripes, fold-over tongue and signature rubber elements on a K-leather upper, all packed in that red and black theme instantly breed in a sense of nostalgia and familiarity. What is not familiar though is the silver application on those stripes, not to mention the same colouring on the more modern Controlframe split-soleplate. That chrome effect shines bright on the boot especially on its external heel counter.
Only 998 pairs of the Predator Accelerator Chrome has been made available, so check out Pro:Direct Soccer for more about this boot.
