David Beckham has designed a new shoe range for adidas inspired by his greatest moments on-pitch.
The collection puts a modern twist on the classic adidas Predator Accelerator boots that Beckham wore so frequently throughout his football career, with three different shoes for “Stadium”, “Street”, and “Cage”.
Each pair of shoes in the collection has one of Beckham’s shirt numbers – 23, 32, and 7 – marked on the heel. The shoes are also styled in red, black, and white, as these are the colours that he identifies as the most important in his football career.
David Beckham said about the new collection: “When I look back on the best moments of my career, the one defining theme of them all is the adidas Predator. It has always been there, helping me play my best when it mattered most. That’s why when adidas offered me the chance to design an updated version of the boot for on-pitch, in the cage and on the street, I absolutely jumped at the chance.”
Sam Handy, vice president of product design at adidas, said: “Our limited-edition capsule collection releases are designed to pay homage to the rich history of adidas while introducing modern technology that keeps pace with the requirements of peak performance. There are few more longer-standing partnerships in sport than David Beckham’s with adidas and so working with David on his own footwear collection was something we were all extremely excited about. We know that these will be iconic products for so many fans and collectors.”
The David Beckham Accelerator shoes come in three versions: Ultraboost, Turf, and Firm Ground and range in price from £179.95 to £299.95. They’re available to buy now from adidas.co.uk and selected retailers.
