Adidas x Jude Bellingham release new 'Predator 24' boots

Adidas and Jude Bellingham pair up to unveil Predator 24 boots

January 17, 2024

There was a time when a certain Zinedine Zidane, wearing #5 for Real Madrid, was the face of the Adidas Predators back in his pomp. Now, three decades after the first Predator cleats were released, Real Madrid’s current #5, Jude Bellingham, is continuing his legacy.

On January 16, Adidas released an advert for the latest iteration of its famous Predator boots featuring the England star. In the one-and-a-half-minute clip, the midfielder is shown stealing the boots from a secret laboratory.

The Predators were voted the greatest boots in history back in 2019. There have been so many iconic versions over the years, including “Touch”, “Accelerator”, “Powerswerve”, “X”, “Adipower” and “Mutator”. The “Predator 24”, its latest iteration, is almost a mesh of the above cleats, perfectly combining retro nostalgia with a modern vibe. The boot, the lightest in Predator history, has the classic black, white and red colourway brought to life by a hint of highlighter yellow.

The “Predator 24” will be worn by some of the best players in the game, including the likes of Jude Bellingham, Pedri, Alessia Russo, Kadidiatou Diani, Gabriel Jesus among many more.

Speaking on the release of Predator 24, Sam Handy, VP of Product and Design at Adidas, said: 

The Predator 1994 was the silhouette that started it all and there is no better way to celebrate 30 years of this game-changing franchise than to revisit its early beginnings.

It was designed in a very different time, and with different methods that we deploy today. And this became our creative challenge. ‘If the Predator 1994 was designed today, for today’s athlete, what would it look like?

The answer is Predator 24. A modern-day expression of Predator, with the same eye-catching design DNA that made the Original so iconic, and instantly recognisable on the feet of the game’s greatest.

We’re incredibly excited to continue the story of this beloved boot and can’t wait to see players creating their own goal-scoring legacies, while wearing them.
