David Beckham x adidas Football

by Henrik Buzzi

Undeniably one of the most internationally celebrated names in sport, David Beckham’s work both on and off the pitch has transformed him from a fledgling Manchester United trainee to a global household name. Talented beyond question, Beckham has enjoyed tenure at some of the world’s most formidable clubs, from Manchester United to Real Madrid to A.C. Milan. Beyond the pitch, Beckham has established himself as a menswear icon known for his interminable style which has led him to work with some truly iconic such as H&M and Kent & Curwen.

In a new opportunity to fuse his passion for both menswear and the beautiful game, adidas Football has announced a new footwear collection designed with the legendary midfielder. The collection celebrates the twenty-plus year partnership between Beckham and adidas, and includes a remastered version of the Predator Accelerator, dubbed the ‘boot of a generation’.

The decorated midfielder wore the Predator Accelerator for the majority of his career, creating history for club and country in the process. Some of these moments were chosen by the player and stitched into the collar of each item of the collection.

The three shirt numbers synonymous with Beckham’s career are marked on the heel of each shoe – 23 on the triple-white ‘Stadium’ boot, 32 on the triple-black ‘Street’ shoe and the famous number 7 on the triple-red ‘Cage’ shoe. Even the lettering blends the original Predator typeface with Beckham’s name and number to produce a modern twist on a classic. Coming soon to selected retailers such as END.
